Christmas Message: Hon. Joshua Francis

Joshua Francis
Joshua Francis – Parl Rep, Roseau South Constituency

On behalf of my wife, and the Roseau South Constituency, I am happy to register our inmost greetings and best wishes to all those who are celebrating Christmas.

We join with every Dominican in recognizing the sense of renewed hope and comfort. For Christians, it is the fulfillment of biblical prophecies and the reaffirmation of God’s great love for all of us.

Like other Christmas seasons, we celebrate the birth of Christ with prayer, feasting, and great cheerfulness. But, most of all we should experience the love and warmth generated by our belief in Christ our Lord and Savior.

We must use our faith to overcome misgivings resulting from economic hardship, emotional stress and all forms and types of challenges.

In this Christmas season, we should inspire to conquer through unrelenting hope as we share our sincere love and compassion.

Let us therefore place smiles on the faces of our children, peace and comfort in the hearts of our senior citizens, and hope into the eyes of everyone. We wish you a new year with success, good health and blessings.

My wife and I ask you to join us in prayers to continue to pray for a better Dominica, a place to stand on the shoulders of God and to enjoy peace and kindness towards each other.

    WOW why all these negativity he sent greetings to his constituency it did not sent it as Leader of UWP let peace rest. The way it sound it seems like there is war between Lenox and Francis one day the truth will reveal.

      The concern supporters of UWP (Team D/ca) quickly developing is the Honourable Jousha Francis is increasingly exhibiting a lack of cohesiveness – there just seems the be cracks showing up that he is not well integrated. Parts of the whole being seems not to be working or fitting together well. His recent actions are odd and failed to pitch in with everything UWP (Team D/ca) – some are quickly having their doubts in him, even turning to saying that he is playing a role contrary to his real character with which contact is quickly becoming dangerous.

      I wouldn’t go as far with my observation in such a conclusion because I believe Hon Francis is a highly talented individual and a bright spark in UWP, and really the future but he just need to play to a game plan very well if UWP is to oust the corrupt UWP regime from office.

    Joshua all the way, our next PM……..Linton please take a backseat.

    Where is the Freedom Party? Are they still a party? or are they waiting for a month before the next GeneralElection to show up? We will not stand for that!

    i will not even read what the deputy has to say. I am a team player and support Hon Mr. Linton. If Joshua wants to be a leader tell him form his own party or he can join freedom.

      Are you so scared?!? You afraid to read and feel the shame when you remember what Linton wrote? Ok, cool

    Of course labourites love Joshua. That is why they deserted the DLP in droves and voted for him instead of Ambrose George. But try as he may, Roosevelt Skerrit can not lay his hands on him and lead him into his camp.

    Your Christmas message is much appreciated and thanks Honourable!

    However, you must be more calculative in your approach and behaviour towards building and maintaining a cohesive UWP force, during 2016 and beyond. The reason for my observation, like so many Dominicans, is your actions during the build up of the 2014 general elections. You were highly visible on the Political scene, vocal on many issues – even co-hosting your own Radio programme and playing to a well-choreographed game plan, exhibiting a spirit of togetherness and doing what you needed to do to strive for a common goal. Your heroic achievement of ousting Mr George and winning Roseau South is quickly showing a new you. Objective achieved and being made Deputy Leader of the UWP seems to add a new and negative impetus to your Political goal in life.

    Out of the window it seem to have gone, the person in you who prior to the 2014 General Election put aside your personal goals and worked well with others / the Party.

    Dear Sir,

    Merry Christmas but the hon lennox linton has already written on behalf of the party, there is no need for the deputy to write.

      please read the man message, he said on behalf of his wife and family he did not on behalf of the UWP party or leader. the man his pal rep so he has all the rights to wish his people well, and by the way his message is a real Christmas message and not the one of the opposition leader.

    Sir, your quality makes so much a difference than your Party Leader. Reading your Christmas message and that of the Leader of the Opposition, one has to think twice. It’s like Day and Night. Have you ever thought of talking to him for a moment?

    • @KID ON THE BLOCK December 25, 2015

      That is so true. Those two men are like day and night or light and darkness, it is hard to imagine how the two of them can work together.

    My man Josh. A Christmas message from a real full of compassion leader. How long will this party realize that Josh should be this party’s leader. Come guys.

  21. December 25, 2015

    It takes all sorts to make our World, thats why we call life. One offering hope, healing, and prayers. The other chanting down hope, prayers, and healing. But God loves them the same. Imagine? God may be a Democrat?.

    I notice you will soon push linton out. in the labour party the only person to give main greetings like 0n major holidays is skerrit no other party member could use the media let that, we don’t hear anything about them unless they are spoken too like a question asked to them,but you are out there. go for it if you want it and you can handle it go for it. honesty and no corruption that’s what we want in d/a not hungry for the opportunity to get mine.. the only thing that belongs to skerrit is his salary everything else belongs to the people.one day these corrupt people will understands what time it is.(NO WHERE TO RUN AFTER CORRUPTION).

    This is a well written thoughtful message of encouragement and hope from the honorable parl. rep. The leader of the opposition on the other hand needs to understand that there’s a time and place for everything. Negativity should take the day off its Christmas Day. Workers really need to sort out the leadership of the party before next election because Lenox though he means well is not the right calibre leader for a party trying to regain control of the peoples’ government.

      Honourable
      Linton is by a long long,and very long way, the best that the party has.The second is probably Dr.Fontaine. I love Joshua more than any other Dominican, but he is only the Labourites leader of the opposition.He enjoys that!

    December 25, 2015

    Now thats a letter. Very well done. You should’ve been Leader of Opposition. I don’t know what RUBBISH Lennox wrote on the other side but you’re a man of Peace , looks like you pray too , God will open your eyes.

  26. Thank you Sir! I understand what you have said here; and I know that it is all true. If we are going to call it Christmas–I as a saved Christian, through my new “birth encounter” since 17 years ago–understand that Jesus is for every minute of the day–not just one day of the year. Jesus’ birthday should be celebrated in the ones whom He has indwelt by the power of Holy Spirit–each of us has our special day.

    May we who dwell in Him, know this and to show what we know about Him, to those who surround us. Blessing for the year 2016

    From the time Honourable Francis threw Ambruise out twenty years of abandonment has been replaced with a year of high performance
    so much so, that sycophants and slaves
    of Skerrit are grovelling to him to come join the corruption on the other side.I find this , repulsive, insultive .WELL DONE JOSH!

      You don’t know the heart of man so careful you are not disappointed later. Only the knife knows the heart of the pumpkin, trust no man. On the other hand, UWP should take note that even Labourites loves Joshua. If you really want to win at all costs here it is work on that and swallow your pride

        Dominican wants to see and hear statesmen, not propagandist
        Everything has its due season so Francis is admired because that is the kind of politician we want and we need.
        Election and campaign is over. He gave the correct Christmas message from his family to his supporters. Good job.
