Work in progress. Return here for updates January 3.
As part of the activities to honor our local church elders, the South Bahamas Conference invites all church elders to a Fellowship Breakfast on Sabbath morning (tomorrow), February 25, 2017, at 7 a.m. to 8 am, in the Parents Teachers Association Room, upstairs Bahamas Academy, Marshall Road.
All elder are also invited to join the hundreds of local elders in the Inter-American Division in attending an online seminar on Sabbath afternoon, February 25th. It is an online event and elders are asked to come to the South Bahamas Conference or Atlantic Union Office at 3:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. Click HERE for the live link
More than 60 local elders attended the Fellowship Breakfast. Pastor Paul Scavella told those present that the reason for the Fellowship Breakfast was to simply say thank you for their service. He said "since it was elders' day around the Inter-American Division, the administration thought it was the best time to express gratitude to all the elders." The meditation for the Fellowship Breakfast was given by Pastor Danhugh Gordon. He spoke on the topic "We Need Spiritual Leaders." Click HERE to view the devotion. After the devotion the elders divided into quandrants and prayed together. Barrington Brennen lead the elders in remembering those elders that were not doing well or who were unable to attend: Stanley Major, Jack Bowe, Vernal Rolle, Percey Miller, Alston Rolle, and Herbert Williams. Curtis Bryan, a local elder, thanked the administration for arranging for this wonderful fellowship breakfast. After the fellowship the elders joined in a sumpteous breakfast.

They all did well. Yes, on Tuesday, February 21, 2017, six staff members of the Media Team of the South Bahamas Conference received a certificate of achievement for attending a special three-day training in radio automation (photos below). The trainer was Tim Kochis (left photo), engineer, attached to Life Talk Radio, and a specialist in broadcast tools and Simian radio automation software.
The nearly twenty-five hours training took place on February 13 to 15, 2017 at WORD SBC 88.3 FM recording studio. Benefiting from the training was the radio coordinator, Lavern Sturrup; television coordinator, Michelle Greene; conference software engineer, Efferim Bethel; and technicians, Patrick Wilson and Philip Humes. Also the communication director, Barrington Brennen participated in the training.
Lavern Sturrup is really excited and happy for the training, because the training will make her work easier, more accurate, and professional. Tim Kochis was invited to train the staff to help us understand the function of the software we have been using since the radio station went on air in 2012. In addition to the training, we purchased to pieces of equipment to help us work more seamlessly between Life Talk Radio and our station. Soon you will hear less of the international news and more branding of our station twenty-four hours a day. Be patient with us as we continue to work on the kinks. We are doing our best to serve you better in bringing first-class programming and sound through WORD SBC 88.3 FM
After they received their certificates they celebrated with "virgin wine" mixed by Barrington Brennen.

Below is an article written by Barrington Brennen in February 2002 to share on the most popular topic at the time of the year--love.
How passionate is your relationship dear reader? Several years ago I was the guest speaker during the Family Life Emphasis Day at the Hillview Seventh-day Adventist Church, Harrold Road, The Bahamas. To create the setting for my presentation, I opened with a touching story of a deep expression of passionate love. The story is written by Michael D.
