The Government of Saint Lucia is continuing efforts at strengthening the island’s infrastructure in the face of climate change, it has been announced.

The government of Taiwan has provided a US$50 million loan to finance major road rehabilitation works, the Government Information Service (GIS) has reported.

The GIS quoted Prime Minister Allen Chastanet as saying that local revenue is also being used.

“In addition to the US$50 million, the gasoline tax has been collecting approximately EC$30 million a year, and that money is going to be used over the first five years in order to complement that spending,” Chastanet explained.

“So the money collected last year has been used for pothole repair work around the country as well as the refurbishment of some roads. All in all, we are looking to spend around EC$300 million in the next three years on major road redevelopments in Saint Lucia.”

The Cul-de-Sac bridge is also earmarked for rehabilitation with financing from the Government of Japan.

“Plans originally included the Ravine Poisson bridge as well as the Cul-de-Sac bridge,” the prime minister said.

He disclosed that the  bid was done recently and estimates were much higher than expected.

Chastanet said that as a result, agreement has been reached  to remove the Ravine Poisson bridge and finance that through a different mechanism, while focussing  the $40 million, which the Japanese are bringing, to commence that project.

“My understanding in speaking with the Ambassador of Japan today is that we’re hoping by February that will be completed, and we can commence works soon afterward,” the PM stated.

A grant provided by the UK Government through the Department for International Development, DFID, has been allocated for reconstruction of the West Coast Road.

    I desire for you to realize that you are seated in Heavenly places, I am already pouring out my blessings upon you, come with me and I will make you strong where you are weak. Time is not the enemy but you must be diligent to accomplish what I have for you, you are in the palm of my hands. I am your Lord and King, trust me, dance with me in this transformation. The wine in the new wine skins are pouring in your life today, you must choose to walk with me. Stand and press-in for the victory is already here. You just have to step up and be willing, and I will bring you to a point where there is nothing missing in you. Look up, for your answer is on the way, what you are about to give up on, I am turning for my Glory. I am busy working out your miracles right now. know that I am fully in control of all things, I will give back to you more than you lost just as I did for my son Job.
    Diamonds do not form without the right environment. I will do for you just as I came through for Moses and Joshua. Your wait has been long enough. Give me what is too heavy to carry for you are my beloved. Rest in me on everything. I can do the impossible with a heart that is yielded; I will not send you out ill prepared, for joy is upon you.
    You are given the eyes and rock of a hawk. You who speak my word, you are laden with special gems. You will be spared the bitterness that will come to the world, you are part of my family. Your situation has no power to affect you. You are my child, you are your calling. Your shame will be turned to dignity. You who refuse to let go of my garment will be blessed for evermore. I am bringing help to you today and I will send gladness and you will know you are my beloved.
    You cannot be concerned with what you will eat or wear, it is not necessary for my children to live in lack. You only need to ask for your desire, so do not steal, kill nor lie.
    As I begin to strip what is in your heart, you must seek my face now and repent, let go of the works you have received in this world. Take thoughts and unforgiveness in your heart and cast it far away.
    I desire that wickedness would be no more, that sufferings would come to an end but for those who do not repent, will be in serious trouble.
    Redeem the time you have left, do not be as the foolish virgins, do your final good works for I am bringing many of them to me. Do good works, finish your season well. Treasures on earth is for a season but treasures in Heaven are everlasting.
    Man has chosen the things of this world that only brings spiritual death. As I draw those who walk close with me, I release those who draw away from me to judgement, many will cry to me in anger.
    I am light but I have also created the darkness, I suffered well in this earth but it is always a choice. I am in all things and I allow the judgements, since no one but me got up from the grave, just trust me.
    I see men bowing to statues and worshipping the dead but this should not be. Many are not obeying my commandments and statues. Look at the world: lust of the eyes, lust of the flesh, there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
    As the fire rages, are you ready to receive me?

    • This concludes the word of the Lord for today, get ready folks and avoid the judgements coming.
