At the time of the writing of this contribution for theStandard Bearer Mrs. Lubbers and I are at home in Michigan. It was a real joy to arrive in the Kent County Airport on June 5th to be greeted by our family and friends; it, was also most blessed to be greeted and received by the many, many brethren and sisters of the various churches in and around Grand Rapids. Really, I am thinking in this sketch very much about the dear brothers and sisters in the congregations outside of the Grand Rapids, Michigan area.
It should be borne in mind, that, when the Protestant Reformed Churches began their work in Jamaica, they did not begin to work where no one had preached the gospel of Christ; they began to work in a rather established and accepted form of church-life. It is now some ten years ago that we first contacted these churches through a certain Rev. Moraly from England who was the “bishop” of the Bible Holiness Churches. The Rev. Clinton Elliott, who visited our country and churches two years ago, was affiliated with the aforenamed Rev. Moraly.
