- About Us
Where were you born?
I was born in St. Andrew Parish in Kingston, Jamaica, West Indies.
Why do you go to church?
I attend church because growing up with my grandparents, especially my grandmother, she believed it was important for the family to worship. I really did not have a choice…even when she was not going (…was not well, etc), my cousin, brother and I had to go. As I got older, church became a major part of my life…it was and is a place to grow with others who are on a spiritual journey such as I.
