ROAD TOWN, Tortola, VI- As the Government launches an attack against COVID-19 on all fronts, today, Sunday, March 29, 2020 has been declared a National Day of Repentance and the public is invited to call in to various radio stations at scheduled times to offer prayers and encouragement for the Territory.

“Today, Government invites all Kingdom Ambassadors, Pastors, past and present legislators, the Governor and all the people of the Territory in a National day of Repentance where anyone can call the different radio stations and offer prayer and encouragement as we reflect on Psalms 91,” Premier and Minister of Finance, Honourable Andrew A. Fahie (R1) stated on March 28, 2020.

Psalms 91, written by King David, is a song/prayer for safety of abiding in the presence of God.

Persons can call in ZKING at 494-4600 between 10:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m.; ZBVI at 494-2430 or 494-6994 from 2:00 p.m. -7:00 p.m.; and, on ZCCR from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

‘Shared mission’ is to stop pandemic in its tracks

Meanwhile, the Virgin Islands began to observe a 24-hour curfew at 8:00pm on Friday, March 27, 2020. The curfew will be lifted at 6:00am on Thursday, April 2, 2020.

“As your leader I know this curfew is asking a lot of you but I also know that you share the same love that I also do for yourselves, each other and this Territory. I know you agree that we must keep everyone, especially our elderly and those with underlying medical conditions, safe,” Premier Fahie said.

He added that the shared mission is to stop this pandemic in its tracks, to ensure that the Territory does not experience any community spreading and to ensure that count is back to zero cases.

“The best way to do this is by staying in hour homes and abiding by the precautions as we are doing, and for that I thank everyone in the Virgin Islands.”

The Virgin Islands has 2 confirmed cases of Novel Coronavirus, both of which were imported.

Premier Fahie reminded that the Territory is awaiting the results of nine more cases and that persons are being tested every day.

“Testing is important to ensure that all of us remain safe. Let us continue to pray that the two patients recover quickly and that we have little or no community spreading in this place we call home.”

      I saw a post bragging about clubbing streaming everynight Live on Facebook and in the same vein asking which church jamming music today.

      People, you can't serve two masters. Stop making a mockery of God.

      As for the gospel bacchanal musician, where is the gospel message in the delivery and why are people more interested in wuckin up to the music than getting the WORD OF GOD AND FOLLOWING HIM INSTEAD OF PEOPLE.

      full agreement with you sometime we only have respect for the King when things are not going good for US: some may recall when sundays in the British Virgin Islands was God's Day, no business places were open BUT we have substituted our Heavenly Father for United States currency until after a bad hurricane and now the Virus!!!!!

    We have to serve God not expect Him to serve us.

    How many can honestly say they spend more time with God instead of social media.

    How many can honestly say they interact and engage in discussions more with posts about God and I'm not referring to the usual Amen comment or sharing a meme that says if you Love Jesus share me as though that's supposed to give an automatic pass; OR is more time spent commenting on foolishness (a filthy joke, encouraging others in sinful behaviour, etc.).

    I ask each and everyone to go back and look at your posts and pics and ask yourself would God be pleased and say come on in my good and faithful servant. If He would not, delete it and start anew.
