Jamaica Land of my birth, my heritage
by Mavis McLeod
Re: What Makes Jamaica Special
JAMAICA is the beautiful land of my birth, where GOD placed my parents and my predecessors as my mother told me from Gold Coast (Ghana)? Thank God for choosing my parents and my birthplace.
(My Grand mother was a Maroon, Ann Haughton Mc)
Thank Him for the Christian Foundation of the family life of Jamaica and my 2nd birth of SALVATION at 8 years old at the Holiness Church at RICKETTS RIVER in Westmoreland.
Our island was/is the Caribbean Garden of Eden. Our People and Culture is so unique, we stand out wherever we go in the World.
There is so much to say that it would take time to write it all..
My Attorney Sanford asked me once "HOW SUCH A SMALL ISLAND AS JAMAICA PRODUCE SUCH CALIBER PEOPLE?" .........
I REPLIED IT IS BECAUSE WE WERE A CHRISTIAN NATION AND WE LOVE OTHERS AND WE HAVE A GOOD EDUCATION SYSTEM, DISCIPLINE AND AMBITION TO ACHIEVE AND BE SUCCESSFUL AT WHATEVER WE CHOOSE TO DO FOR OUR LIFE AND CHILDREN.
(My mother started a little school in her yard to "ketch the pickney them, sit them down, and teach them ABC and to count" she told my Sister Doreen ..but she dropped it so my brother Cecil just out of Seminary as a Preacher continued the School which is Frome Early Childhood Institute now!
It is over 50 years in existence!
Thank God for the life of my parents and my brother RIP
Let us Pray for unsaved Jamaicans to repent and accept God's gift of Salvation !!!
