Salvation Army Raises Funds To Feed 200

THE Salvation Army has launched its 2014 Kettle Drive.

The Salvation Army’s Christmas Kettle drive is an annual initiative of the Salvation Army aimed at fostering the giving spirit during the festive season.

Each year the kettles are situated in populated locations throughout St. Lucia, and are characterised by the merry ringing of a bell to call attention to passers-by. Public donations and funds are collected in support of the Salvation Army’s efforts during the Christmas season.

The kettle bell tradition dates back to 1891 and is entirely dependent on the generosity of the public to provide financial assistance, counseling, food, clothing, toys, and shelter for less fortunate persons year round.

This Christmas season the Salvation Army is expected to make an impact on the lives of over 200 persons through the provision for food and food-hampers.

Captain Dwayne Broome, of the Salvation Army expressed the goals of the organisation for the season stating, “Our target this year is to deliver over 550 food-hampers to the less fortunate throughout St. Lucia and the Ministry of Social Transformation is on board to assist in our efforts of reaching persons in the most vulnerable communities.”

CIBC FirstCaribbean, no stranger to providing support to the Salvation Army through its Adopt-a-Cause Programme, has stepped up as a corporate supporter of this year’s kettle drive.

For information on how you can support or volunteer with the Salvation Army please contact Captain Dwayne Broome at 452-3108, sacastries@yahoo.com or at our office on 12-14 High Street Castries.

    As you brainwashed Negro Slaves of White man Worship, embark on indulging in the confirmation of your stupidity or insanity, by your open declaration that God impregnated Mary with his sperm (biological/begotten baby), to give birth to a Caucasian Son-of-God who has come to Earth to die and pay the Blood Ransom to Satan who had captured you after having sexual intercourse with our mother Eve in the Garden of Eden, I thought it might help if you knew what your Caucasian Christian brothers think of you Black Slaves as you spend your little monies buying trees and rum. Here’s your role and position in the Christmas story as expressed by your Caucasian Masters in the video below:

    Woman with Faith the size of a mustard seed resurrects husband six months after his death, and ends up in Jail. I am coming back to Roman Catholicism, where I can worship the Naked White man, nailed to a piece of wood as God of the Negro, thanks to Rick Wayne and Josie.

    Matthew 17:20
    He replied, “Because you have so little faith. Truly I tell you, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.”

    A small community of Christians in Canada left the body of a deceased member for six months trusting God to resurrect him from the dead. The Crown found no criminal intent and the grieving widow was ordered to seek public health counseling.

    The unusual case was resolved on Monday as Kaling Wald, 50, pledged guilty to failing to notify the authorities of her husband Peter’s death.

    The 52-year-old, who suffered from diabetes, got a leg infection sometime in March. But he refused to go to hospital, trusting God to cure him. Eventually the disease took over and he slipped into coma and died sometime around March 20, according to the agreed statement of facts read out in court.

    Mrs. Wald covered the body with two blankets, the head with a toque (beanie), padlocked the bedroom door and sealed vents to keep the decomposition stench from the house. She believed her husband would be eventually resurrected from and return to his family.

    “We were trusting God. We thought, ‘OK, Lord, you know better,’” Wald told the Hamilton Spectator after the court hearings.

    The corpse had been lying upstairs for six months before the sheriff had arrived to evict Wald, her six children aged between 11 and 22 and seven adult friends from their home in Hamilton, Ontario, due to failure to pay the mortgage.

    The sheriff discovered the body, which by that time had been partially eaten by rodents and decomposed badly enough that it could not be identified by a photo.

    Due to the mummified state of the body, a toxicology test could not be conducted, but the pathologist stated that the death was “likely due to natural causes.”
