    Brother Percy was also a gifted tailor who made all my PSS school pants way back then. He would council me and share the word of God with me when ever i was within reach and his exemplified humility always inspired me. Thank you bro Percy for your efforts and your sharing. God’s will show you favor for you kind deeds. sweet rest.

    I was personally blessed to have worked with Br. Martin and had some wonderful times together. He was really fearless in preaching the Gospel and was a fireball for his Lord. His main mission was to build the Kingdom of God. He has had a wonderful and profound influence on people’s lives who were desirous to share the Gospel. What a wonderful, awesome Christian Br. Martin was. His sacrifice and service to God will always be remembered. He will be sorely missed. A true saint now is home! Rest in peace in the bosom of our Maker. Shalom brother and my sincere condolence to your family.

    God Bless!

      Pastor Wyllis:

      “Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of His saints.”

      I didn’t have the pleasure of meeting Bro. Martin but your comments are a sweat aroma of a life well spent. Others also spoke so highly of him it is obvious this was a man in whom the Father is well pleased.

      When I was younger I didn’t think so seriously about these things. Now I am 72yr old. When I pass I hope people will be able to write that way about me.

      Condolences and bessings to all.

      Sincerely, Rev. Donald Hill. Pentecosal Evangelist.

      This man was a pillar in the evangelical Christian community.

      DNO is read internationally. It is read daily in Canada where there are a significant number of Dominicans. Some woud have no other way of receiving this news.

      DNO ADMIISTRATION, thank you!
