Jamaica You Are In My Prayers!

Wednesday, May 26, 2010



As many of you know, I am half Jamaican. My family and friends reside there. You may or may not be aware, but the tragedy unfolding in Jamaica right now is becoming a wider crisis of organized crime, armed violence and political corruption. Unfortunately, this problem runs very deep and it would be impossible for me to explain it all.

My heart goes out to those in critical condition. Condolences to the families of those who have lost their lives. I pray that my cousins in Kingston remain safe as well as the innocent people who can no longer leave their homes due to the shootings and violence taking place. I pray that God will watch over Jamaica during this hard time and that this mess will soon be behind us.

  9. Praying with you sis. I'm also half Jamaican as well. I call myself a Jamerican. My grandma, grandpa, great aunts & uncles and many cousins are all over there. So they're constantly on my mind and heart. I'm not worrying, because I'm trusting God to keep our loved ones safe and bring an end to this senseless violence. I have a friend who keeps us updated on Facebook all day because she made a trip recently and is still over there. She said she woke up a day or so ago to gun shots. So I am truly praying hard.
