The newly installed Minister of National Mobilisation, Youth and Housing Dr Orando Brewster told his local congregation last Sunday that he will not abandon his church.
Brewster who worshipped among family, friends and well-wishers including former MP for the Central Leeward constituency Sir Louis Straker said:
“Pastor Randy is still going to minister to you, still going to praise our God. I will be back here. I have started ministering to this congregation and I will continue. I have a relationship with Christ, I have a covenant with Him; and I must honour my covenant. He is a covenant keeping God.”
The first term MP who is only 34 years old won the Central Leeward constituency in the recently concluded general elections.
Recognising his achievement, he pleaded with the congregation and those listening online:
“I know the expectation is high, but I am just asking God, one day at a time sweet Jesus, that’s all I am asking of you. Just give me the strength to do every day what I have to do.”
“I can’t promise you a pot of gold because I don’t have it but I know if we can work together, joining hearts and joining hands then we can get a lot accomplished in this community, in this constituency and in this nation.”
He said that there were times in the campaign that he felt as if he was knocked down but found strength ‘in the secret place’ through prayers.
Special tribute was paid to his wife to whom he warmly expressed his adoration:
“She has seen the tears. she has been by my side through thick and thin. She was my support system.”
Dr Brewster also thanked the congregation for holding him in their prayers and asked that they continue to do so. Pastor Clarke and his son Prophet Andrew Clarke also received special recognition during a moving tribute that had members on their feet.
