On Tuesday 4th, September 2012, Sister Elesa Fisher, Brother Harold Campbell and myself (Martin Shirley) journeyed to Port Antonio to fellowship with Sister Enid Hall. Port Antonio is the first tourist town in Jamaica, it is East of the island. It has lush greenery and is densely populated. Sister Enid Hall lives directly in the town.
We discussed the daily Bible readings, did hymns, breaking of bread and prayer. Below are pictures of the Bible discussion and breaking of bread taking place.
Wednesday 5th, September Sister Janetta Elliott (she’s a shut in sister) received the emblems when we fellowshipped together. She lives in Round Hill, which is a major farming community in St. Elizabeth which is south of the Island and is close to the capital Black. See pictures below.
Sister Janetta is a paraplegic, she became like that in her infancy. She spends her days at home mostly indoors or on the varanda as it tends to get very hot in St. Elizabeth. She always welcomes fellowship and so was most delighted when I visited.
Ecclessia interest rekindled….

Sunday 9th, 2012 Memorial meeting at Port Maria….
After a lull, in attendance over a period of months I am happy to say that the interest is being rekindled at Port Maria Ecclessia. With over fifteen of us in attendance, three from Free Hill who joined in fellowship. The meeting is desirous of having midweek Bible study, youth circle and Sunday school. All this we have sat down and talked about. With God’s help, I will have to be instrumental in getting them to these meetings as transport is a problem for them. I am trying to see how best I can use my time to help them make these a reality.
Thank God, all is not lost.
