Pastor says St Joseph needs development

Pastor Carlos Brathwaite of Dunamis Outreach Ministries has lamented what he calls the lack of development in the parish of St Joseph.

He told members of the media, following the launch of New Life in Christ Ministry at the St Bernard’s Primary School,  that the rural parish needs social and infrastructural development to reach its fullest potential.

“It is a community or parish that really needs to have greater development of its human resources and human capital. The people are, in my view, longing for someone to show them that they really care,” said Brathwaite.

The Wesleyan Holiness Pastor said he is anxiously awaiting the reopening of the Andrew’s Sugar Factory as he believes this will help in addressing the unemployment situation in the rural communities.

“Because it is a rural parish, it needs to have some kind of industrial development to be able to provide jobs and opportunities for the people. I am anxiously awaiting the commencement and the completion of Andrew’s Sugar Factory which I believe will provide the opportunities for employment for the residents,” he said.

While recognizing the efforts made by Member of Parliament Dale Marshall, Brathwaite said that more resources need to be allocated to social development and road infrastructure.

“These things are necessary,” he said.

Brathwaite said the church’s role in St Joseph is to help the community.

“The church brings a spiritual dimension to the community, it’s not here to take from but rather to help in the community outreach and focus on the community. As a new church in this community, I believe with the help of God we can begin to be a catalyst for the issues raised,” he added. (KK)

    That’s easy. Kelly could approve Mark Maloney to build a dozen high rise 30 units apartments, Govt. can widen and pave the road linking it ti the ABC Highway, Haloute could build another Cheffette, Massey or Andrew Bynoe or even Scott Oran could establish a shopping mall and before you know it a couple Banks, and a number of shops and businesses will spring up. Your church will get more worshippers, you will get more tax free collections, and all will be well. Tell Fruendel. He planning to develop Oistins. Besides he would like to get that St. Joseph seet in the Dems hands.

        You are correct Jennifer, I am bamboozled. I would like ANYONY Preachers, Priests, Pandit. , Imam, from any religion to answer this. If God made everything, then who or what made God? Don’t tell me I should not question God. That same God said as his first Commandment that ” Thou shalt have no other God but me.” Does that not mean that there ARE OTHER Gods out there? The Bible was written by man just over 3600m years ago. Pray tell me. The dinosaurs roamed the earth 65 million years ago. Who made those? and where was god then? Jennifer your control concept presents itself here. That religion and belief was created by smart men, to entrap and enslave through fear, to control the minds of mankind, to risk even dying for God.
        That bible, when studied word for word phrase by phrase, story by story, contradicts itself so boldly, that as it stands today, Over 94% of the educated, qualified and university students Do NOT believe there is a God. They only outwardly to save face, and out of respect for their forefathers. I am not an atheist. I just read a lot. and I am one that questions things. for God so loved the world, that he will destroy everything . Where is his love? and one of the biggest hypocrisy is those so called men of the cloth. They have turned religion into a business. A tax haven, money making entity that is successful out of the trusting, believing minds of the people.

          Mind you, from some of your other comments. You appear to be reading the bible too. i.e the Armageddon comment.

    @, Jennifer , hail , hail on the button as usual …..
    @, Peter , hail, hail , every word perfect, but i must add , to all of these bible whackers , In the eyes of god all men are equal but, where was God and Jesus for centuries of black slavery , we needed more help then…
    For me i have this bold feeling the blackman was sent to be the white man’s slave , but a break came and and that change things a bit …..Why its so easy that black people is always praying , always suffering , but have this massive manufacturing base of hundreds of religious organizations , with no economic value what so ever ..only to pastors and the churches properties ……………
    If we in barbados could be able to convert 50% of the churches to businesses, including factories .. employing thousands of bajans we would be 150% economically better off..and this goes for the black world……………………………………………………..
    Our Barbados we can do a dam lot better than lots of countries in the world, we have a base to start from , but our politicians are the ones who is standing in the way of progress ,, we are being punished daily by the system which keeps the 1 % of our nation way out in front , these people need not bother because they have they protection…………………………………………………
    @, hcalndre, hail, hail, on the button , thats why our bajan people
    need to be protected, need to have something hanging over the heads of the politicians, to make sure we never allowed to be treated as we have been by this present government …………
    ……………………………………………………………………………..
    (If we dont do something now , just think if after the upcoming election these said people get back into power, what bajans think is going to happen ………… (just ponder that fate ) ……………
    come on people I need some support , lets try my idea ……….

        Jrsmith – you are taking a bit long to answer. The bit which has changed is the you are no longer using the Collins, you are now using the pen/computer. You get to drive as the plantation is now widespread and also own a house as you are no longer living in that yard.
