BASSETERRE, ST. KITTS, December 3, 2018 (PLP PR Media Inc.) -- The last of four church services, held in celebration of the 25 years of boundless service to Constituency Number Seven and the country by Prime Minister Dr the Hon Timothy Harris, was held in Constituency Number Six.
Pentecostal Church of God on the Island Main Road in Saddlers Village was on Sunday December 2 the venue of the church service where Bishop Rev George C. Gilfillan welcomed the Prime Minister as his own son while wishing him goodness and mercy all the days of his (Dr Harris’) life.
Delivering the main sermon, Rev Dr Analdo Bailey reminded the congregation that the Prime Minister had told the church that from his humble beginning he had no idea, nor thought that he would be where he is sitting. Rev Bailey said he thanked and continued thanking God for lifting Dr Harris up and raising him.
“And it tells me that something must be good because he has been there for twenty five years serving not only this community but this nation,” said Rev Bailey. “And it is not that he is there by force, but every once in a while he has to go back to renew his mandate and so he has been going back and he has been successful.”
He told Prime Minister Harris: “And I solely say to you Sir, all of us are grateful for you have been contributing to the country. We the Children of Faith believe that God is on your side and we trust that you will continue to hold on to His unchanging hand.”
In the meantime, Prime Minister Dr the Hon Timothy Harris thanked the leadership of the Pentecostal Church of God in Saddlers for the lovely welcome it had given the Constituency Number Seven Group and allowing them as their special guests worshipping at the church. He especially thanked them for what he termed ‘the warm Pentecostal welcome’.
Dr Harris also expressed deep appreciation for the presence of his Cabinet colleague and Member of Parliament for Constituency Number Eight, the Hon Eugene Hamilton who is also the Minister of Agriculture, and Health et al. Also present was Deputy Speaker of the National Assembly Senator the Hon Akilah Byron-Nisbett.
“I became a representative of the people perhaps by their demand, and their support,” said the Honourable Prime Minister. “So from the bottom of my heart I say thank you to the people of Constituency Seven. Truth be told: They have never over the last twenty five years once let me down. So I love you tremendously, and I will always have an enduring love of gratitude for your support.”
Dr Harris told the congregation that over the past 25 years there were persons like Bishop Gilfillan and his family who offered him much support. When his own house was under renovations, Bishop Gilfillan housed him and allowed him to take charge of the house expect for the cooking. He added: “They allowed me to become their adopted son.”
In conclusion Prime Minister Harris said: “I hope genuinely that in the years to come that we can do more as a people and as a country to make life better for all of us in this land of our birth. I am happy that as I look over my life and you look over your life, if we were to count our blessings each of us would be surprised at what God has done for us. My constituents are part of the blessings which I have counted and will continue to count.”
Led by Pastor Pansy Bailey, the church choir made a special rendition of ‘the Lord is my Sheppard’ in honour of the Prime Minister. Moved by the exhilarating rendition, Dr Harris could sit no further. He stood, and was handed over a mike and he joined in the singing.
