‘Alive in us’

Former Prime Minister David Thompson still lives; and he lives in the hearts and minds of Barbadians, Prime Minister Freundel Stuart proclaimed yesterday.

And it is the values that Thompson spread across the country during his short stint as Prime Minister, he says, that will eventually help Barbados out of the current economic recession.

Stuart made the claim as he delivered the feature remarks at the second David Thompson Memorial Service at the Wesleyan Holiness Church of Massiah Street in St John.

And the Prime Minister yesterday called on all countrymen and countrywomen to stay the course along with the Government, in fighting “the worst recession the planet has encountered in more than a century”, by using the values Thompson had instilled.

The late Honorable PM acquired his good values from the Word of the Lord GOD Almighty. So why not give GOD the glory, honor, praise and thanks first, then thank Him too for allowing Mr. Thompson to become the leader of our nation and exhibiting these qualities?

Why is man so reluctant to turn to the One who set life in motion, therefore possesses ALL the answers to our problems? What will help Barbados out of the current adverse economic circumstances is the ongoing prayers of the Saints becoming more intense and widespread, in my view. GOD only blesses the nation that recognizes His authority (Psalm 33:12).
