Sunday, My 18, 2014. PATRICK E. JONES Reporting: Ground was broken this morning in Georgeville village, Cayo district, for the construction of a new church building for the Salvation Army Church.
At the Ground Breaking Ceremony, the Salvation Army’s territorial programme secretary Lt. Col. Devon Haughton declared the project officially started.
The Jamaican-born Lt. Col. Haughton prayed that every person who will be employed at the project site will be protected and that the work will be completed on time.
The first phase of the construction of the two-storey concrete structure is expected to be completed in time for the Salvation Army’s Centenary Celebrations in April of 2015.
“We pray that it will be an edifice to you glory and your honour, oh God,” said Lt. Col. Haughton.
The new Salvation Army church building in Gorgeville will replace the current structure which was built back in 1988 and serve as the church’s primary place for worship and other missionary projects.
Present at this morning’s Ground Breaking Ceremony were village Chair Lady Rosetta Williams, the Community Police Officer Constable Ciriaco Medina, Regional Commander Major Joliker Leandre and members of the church’s congregation.
