As The Bahamas still reels from the aftermath of this month’s Hurricane Joaquin, two local Baptist churches decided to do their part by donating the nation’s relief efforts. The funds will be targeted in the central and Southern islands, which were most affected by the storm.
On behalf of the Miami-based St. Matthews Missionary Baptist Church and the Baptist Minister Council of Greater Miami, Rev. Vincent Brown presented the donation to Consul General Ricardo Treco at The Bahamas Consulate General Miami office.
Rev. Brown, a native of The Bahamas, says this was just a small way for the Diaspora community to “give back to their homeland.”
“Such acts of kindness and love means a lot to The Bahamas and its people,” said Consul General Treco. “The Bahamas is a blessed nation and with individuals like Rev. Brown and others, we will be able to rebuild the islands.”
