A Ford vehicle was damaged in a landslide near Mero on Tuesday morning around 5:30 am.

One of the men involved in the accident, John Mitchel from Colihaut, said they were on their way to Roseau in light rain when the accident occurred.
“The road was wet, the atmosphere was dark with light rain,” he said.
No one was injured and Mitchel is thankful.
“All in all praise be to GOD, who proved he is merciful and loving to protect us. We were not injured, but the Ford van got some damaged on the front left side,” he said.
Dominica has been experiencing rainy conditions for the past couple of days.

    To those who recognize God and pay him homage, especially on Sundays, the Holy Day of Obligation and who perform good works in Jesus Name, He will protect.
    While He must be thanked for their safety, we must not overlook what Our Lord Jesus Christ said, “For He makes his sun to rise on the good and the bad and rain to fall on the just and the unjust.”
    Why some are protected and others are not, only God knows. Nevertheless, Our Lord said, “In all things give God due thanks and praise.” This means, under any circumstances which befall us. I like to say, when all is said and done. How many do that?
    Only when things are good with them and they are happy they give God thanks and praise. After that some forget about him completely.
    Does He not know that? Of course, He who nothing is hidden from and whom no one can hide from.

    Are we so ignorant to ask the question, ‘what does God have to do with that?’. Do we forget that before God made man, he made heaven and earth. Whatever the weather, God is in control, and we have no power to stop anything. So we always have to thank the Lord God Almighty for his mercies, and protection on us Human Beings.

    As he said in his word, “We must give thing in all things. In the Good Times, praise his name, In the bad times do the same. In every thing, give the King of Kings, all the praise! We could jump high, jump low, we cannot do nothing to stop mother nature. Mother nature is crying, for our attention and we are not taking heed. God talks to us in different circumstances. Pray, and always give thinks to God, and let us Love One Another. “LOVE, PEACE, JOY AND HOPE IN THE LORD!!!!

    What does God have to do with any of this?

      Obviously Rastafarians do not believe in God. They believe in a man, Haille Selassie, long dead He went to his eternal judgment and was judged by God, a man whom God created who placed himself on his self-proclaimed pedestal, greater than God.
      I often wonder where his soul is. For those who deny God, I have an inkling where it might be. Our Lord spoke of those who deny God before all people and who are ashamed of Him and His Word.
      Check it out in the Holy Bible, the New Testament, the Gospel of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. While at it, read the writings and spiritual directives of St. Paul as inspired by Our Lord’s Holy Spirit. Study them as well.
      May God grant you enlightenment and shower you with His blessings and graces to recognize Him that you will make a round-a-bout turn and repent before it is too late for you. God’s peace also be to you.

      Who is Jah? There is only One God, called by One Name. We call him Our Almighty Father – our Heavenly Father. This is his name, the name which Our Lord Jesus Christ taught us Christians to call him through to eternity.
