  1. Truly you are a God who hides himself,O Dieu, God and Savior of 🇱🇨 St-Lucia.
    You who says :
    “I am the LORD and there is no other.
    I have not spoken in secret, from somewhere in a land of darkness ;I have not said to Jacob’s descendants,
    ‘Seek me in VAIN’.
    I,the LORD, speak the truth ;
    I declare what is right.
    Those who pray to gods that cannot save ❗ Declare what is to be,present it_ let take counsel together.
    Who foretold this long ago, who declare it from a distant past ?
    Was it not,I the LORD ?
    And there is no God apart from me,a righteous GOD and a Savoir ; there is none but me ‼️

    Turn to me and be saved,all you ends of the earth ; for I am God,and there is no other. By myself I have sworn,my mouth 🌀 has uttered in all intergrity,a word that will not be revoked ‼️
    Before me every knee will bow ;by me every tongue will swear.
    They will say of me, ‘In the LORD alone are righteousness and strength.’ ”
    All who hate and have raged against him will come to him and be put to shame (silence).
    But in the LORD all the descendants of Israël (faithful and true followers) will be found righteous and will EXULT ‼️

  2. Yall people a so dumb….. yall talking like somebody kill the man or something…. i work on the sea and the boat he was on was anchored on the beach for 1 reason, and thats for the people to swim. It was an accident. Drowning is a very silent thing. It donesn’t happen how you seee it in the movies. And again the sea was very very calm in that area yesterday. I work with a boat charter company and people we have experienced the same…. not too long ago one of our guests jumped into the water at sugar beach and suffered a heart attack and went down in waist deep water. The people were having a good time yesterday and an unfortunage tragedy struck so carry on it’s sad but get on with yall lives amd stop assuming shit yall know nothing about.

  3. He jumped in the water just so ! Among what group of people was he when he jumped. Did anyone persuade him not to jump ? Did he have any beef with anyone in the group ? Was there an argument before the jump. How much drinking was going on prior to the jump ? What effort was made to save his life ? Has everyone in the group been questioned individually ? What are their stories ? Any suspicions ? I know that it is probably too early to answer all those questions, but curious minds would like to know ?

  4. Sad news wow who would have thought that how it would have end up for him. Causes me to reflect. It’s an opportunity for all of us to reflect on over own lives. Life can be so unpredictable people and ever day gone by is an opportunity to make things right with God. People gamble it and that’s one of the most dangerous thing you could do cuz we don’t no what life could bring our way. Stop gambling it!! Make it right today. Every day that pass without you doing it, time is running out on you. Make it right today for no one knows their hour or their minute. Jesus saves, He love you.

  5. There has got to be so much more to that story than what’s stated in the above update from the police. Frankly, if the police believe that’s all there is to that story, I invite Lucians to join me in auctioning the Bridge Street bridge to the Marine Police next Monday!

  6. Qwik qwak: tell me how this one sounds; “was in a boat with others when he jumped into the water and did not resurface” did he surface at all and failed to later? but later recovered??? sounds fishy to me – the need for lie detector in this case: seems only God knows.
