    I honestly believe women in the BVI is getting cancer due to the poisonous toxins in the air from a burning open dump site.

    I hope Esther Durand knew Jesus and was Born Again. We know we must be Born Again as Jesus told us. Our xPremier is in Detention in The Southern District of Florida and I pray he too will repent and be Born Again. Have you repented and are you Born Again as Jesus said you must be? Please, we now know how short time is and at any moment our time can be up on this earth, which is the only place we can repent and be Baptized and Born Again or the Lake of Fire is our reward. Be very careful that Jesus does not tell you, " I do not know you!" And so you get thrown into the Lake of Fire. Wake UP

    I remember I didn't know you and you befriended me. Every time you saw me you would greet me. When I saw you last I testified to you and witnessed to you about Jesus. Sad to hear this.
