    Aye you taking note; As soon as the SDA crusade start the Leader Jailed, As soon as the SDA end the Evangelist Fainted and the earth shook the following day. Don't you think something serious is going to happen? In all the Caribbean The BVI is the smallest but have the first open tent Crusade.. Just think of it for a while before answering.

      I have also took my notes as well. The exact way you explained it, it has happened. I can bet this has not played out in most peoples heads. This is the beginning of something serious that is going to happen, don’t mean to scare anyone but just think about it.

      That tent crusade is yearly for 3 weeks.

      They just need to be mindful of level of the speakers sound and repetitive songs sung.

    Felt it in church at St Pauls. The sermon was about “if God is with me, who can be against me?” Wonder if Mr Fahie still believes that!

    The only people who needs to repent is the Vaccinated people. If the sheeps don't learn that the elites is the ones destroying the Earth then your blind. How did our great great great grandparents survived without a proper house,lights, everything back in those days. No heater,no ac. When are people going to use common sense instead of school,tv,music and all kinds of brainwash programming. It's called tv programming for a reason. It programs you . Everything monkey see money has to do. Man never used to wear tight pants the rappers and people on tv do it all the dumb sheeps follow. When are you all going to stop letting these bad influencers brainwash you all
