Canada Supports Improved Drainage In Saint Lucia

Press Release:-  Residents of Valerie Lorde Avenue can look forward to safer access to their community in heavy rains now that the Riviere Mitant Development Committee has completed a series of drainage works in that area.

The improvement works are expected to reduce the water on the road, reduce erosion and protect the road surface.

Through support from Canada, the Riviere Mitant Disaster Risk Management – Drainage Rehabilitation and Construction Project was launched on April 14th, 2019.

  Under this project, the Committee, in partnership with the Department of Infrastructure, has constructed more than 180 metres of drain including vehicle crossings where needed and a sump to help protect the natural watercourse.

The project budget was CAD$105,966.22 with CAD$98,236.63 coming from the Government of Canada.

The Senior Director of Canada’s Caribbean Regional Development Program, Mr. Benoît-Pierre Laramée was delighted to unveil the new project sign, commemorating the successful completion of the works.

Mr. Laramée particularly congratulated the community and the leadership of the Riviere Mitant Development Committee for their self-help approach and persistence in getting to this point.

He noted that “This is a good example of communities adapting to climate change”.

Canada is committed to supporting the Caribbean’s resilience agenda.

In November 2017, Canada announced CAD$100M to support reconstruction and climate resilience efforts in the Caribbean region over the next five years.

Climate change will bring increasingly variable weather conditions and more extreme rainfall events. This can severely impact livelihoods and general day-to-day living.

To be able to respond to the increased threat of natural disasters and climate change, communities must build their resilience.

The Canada Caribbean Disaster Risk Management Fund is a CAD$3M fund designed to support Caribbean-based, non-governmental organizations, community groups, and governmental agencies working at the community level.

St Lucia previously benefitted from CAD$20,000 towards improved emergency communications through the St. Lucia Amateur Radio Club and Canada continues to work with partners on the ground to help make a difference.

    I Proclaim on the rooftops that the “King is coming to redeem the earth of its curse.”! I announce to the ends of the earth, that the “King is coming”. And that the days of Noah are here. “Prepare ye the way of the Lord and make straight his paths.” Tell all the world that I am coming back soon. “I am coming for those who have laid their burdens down”. In the name of Jesus Christ, I pray, Amen.
    The father says: The father says: I am not in past movements where my people flourished in. Many want things to go back to where it used to be, but there is no power still in what was; I am in your now. I am establishing what should be your today’s, not yesterday’s. I am not a boring God so behold I do a new thing. None of my chosen vessels in the bible were carbon copies of each other, and each has their own unique, signs, wonders and miracles, that were for their journey. My bride fails to fully acknowledge and walk in what I am up to now because they only want a handful of known signs of my hand and voice. Who is hoping I would do the unheard of today when they see it many deny it is by my power and authority? What is familiar will not truly satisfy nor take you to the heights that are indeed your portions. Expect me to do what has never been and you will truly be where I desire you to be. Ask me to do the unseen in your life and you will walk in days that astonish even the best skeptics.
    Ask for little, get little. Ask for everything and you will receive all that I have. I am willing to do far more than my people are thinking I would do. Take a risk every day in our relationship, I will show up when you place your faith and trust in me alone. The logical mind of man will not get you to where I want you to stand in. The hidden door is in the spiritual realm but watch it manifest to meet your needs. Let the new be new in every respect. Do you believe I could and would? Dance with me and celebrate your today; greater is your portion. Today we feast at my table and today I will deliver you with my majesty beyond imagining. July is a month of pure delight and unending surprises, what is about to manifest is been gathering your due increase while in wait. If you cannot see in the natural, then choose to tap into the spiritual realm. When you see with heavens’ perspective, you will truly be set free of your worry and threat. Let the rains fall upon every need you have for I have greater for you to do with your resources. I am unlimited, so, therefore, you are unlimited.
    * These are exclusively the words of –Yahuwah and his son Yahushua Mashiach.
    God the Father, the Great King wants his name to be promoted in the four corners of the earth. Repent now; get baptized and receive the gift of the Holy Spirit, those of you who are in the valley of decision. Do not procrastinate any longer but go ahead and choose God, for when the door and the books are closed no one will be able to enter in. God is sending warnings after warnings. We are in the End Times and he does not want ANYONE to Perish. Time is running out, get saved now while you have time. He is the only way to salvation. Amend your ways and you will be allowed to remain in the land. Let those who have ears to hear and those who have eyes to see. Repent now! Remain strong, be bold, courageous and steadfast in your faith.
    The Lord is saying that: there are people in the churches, in the pulpits, the choir, the church boards, (church in general), who claim to know him but do not have a personal relationship with him, his spirit does not dwell in their hearts and they need to learn how to build a relationship with him, so he can dwell in their hearts. Repent now, pray without ceasing, read his word daily and speak to him as your best friend or father. Do not hesitate to do this as his judgments have already begun. The end of everything has begun.
    Credit to Brother Shomrim, may God bless and protect you my, brother.
    – God’s messenger, chosen vessel and prophet to the world.
