Teddy A. Jones: Adopted Portland And Jamaica!

by Teddy

I was born in the Eastern Caribbean but from a boy growing up in primary school Jamaica always fascinated me.

I knew that somehow, someday my feet would rest on her soil.

I landed here in 1998 for undergraduate studies and as they say the rest is history.

I married a daughter of Jamaica from Portland and have adopted that parish as my very own. Big up all Portlanders!!!

Editor's Note
Hi Teddy,

Blessings & honour my friend!

It is great to hear about your love and passion for Jamaica! And Portland to be even more specific.

That place is beautiful! Untouched, if you ask me.

I have been there (stopped at Great Huts for a while) and I believe that area has tremendous potential - loved it!

It is great to hear that you found your Jamaican 'daughter' there as well :-)

And because I know you otherwise, I also know that even while enjoying Jamaica and its people, you are making a significant contribution here from your work in gospel ministry and the intercity areas as well.

That's where the nickname Ghetto Priest came from, right sir :-)

Anyway, thanks again for you sharing your contribution here and for your love and passion for our beautiful country.

Do continue to enjoy... and spread the love.
One love brother!

Wellesley Gayle

P.S. Love Jamaica? Like Teddy did, share your passion here as well

Hi there Mr. Gayle... Imagine that, I am not sure if we have met but it is good to know that you actually know me :)

Yes that is where the name ghettopriest came from.

I congratulate you on your site and I am researching the SBI thing. It looks like something I can sink my teeth into. Great job on the site.
