The North Jamaica Conference of Seventh-day Adventists (NJC) family has been plunged into mourning following the loss of two of its stalwart youth leaders, both from the Seventh-day Adventist Church, St. Ann’s Bay.
Official reports are that on Sunday, December 30, 2018, one of the youth from the St. Ann’s Bay congregation celebrated her birthday. During the activities, which took place in the vicinity of Silver Sands/Duncans Bay Beach, in Duncans, Trelawny, three of the participants were in the water during the late afternoon. It is reported that one got into difficulties and the other two went to the person’s assistance, when all three got into difficulties.

One of the three managed to make it back to shore, and one was recovered from the water, and was subsequently pronounced dead at the Falmouth hospital. The third person, the son of Pastor Mobrey Lewis, NJC Sabbath School and Personal Ministries Director, remains missing at sea, as at the time of this publication.

Efforts by the JDF coast guard to locate the missing person have proven futile and very difficult, given the current conditions of the sea.
