NJC Plunged into Mourning Following Drowning Incident

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.

    Please accept our sincere condolences to the families of deceased victims. Vivian (Brandon) Bryan, his wife and family share close and personal relationship with our family for many years being a past member of the Mile End SDA church. Through such relationship, we became well acquainted with Pastor Lewis and his family and your beloved President.

    So as part of the greater family of God, my wife and I are saddened to learn of the tragic drowning accident which took the lives of their beloved and committed Christian children.
    Our prayers are with the family and the North Jamaica Conference as you go through this difficult time of grief.
