In his congratulatory remarks, Deputy Director of Grenadines Affairs Mr. Herman Belmar said it is his feeling that new SOP Church will be one f the most magnificent buildings where the presence of God will dwell and where the people on the island can go for overall development. Mr. Belmar reminisced of years gone by where Institutions like Churches would leave their doors open and people would walk off of the streets with reverence and a majestic fear for God to receive help at different times throughout the day. He however noted that because of the moral decline in society, these Institutions have been forced to lockdown to protect against theft and vandalism but he expressed the hopes that the new Church would find a way around the issue to help people in this regard.
She further said that while the Church continues to advance, then places of worship must be built where people can come to be nurtured and discipled. She commended the SOP Ministries for continuing to do their part to counteract the moral and spiritual decline that has been unleashed in the world today.
