  1. Welcome Ms. Hippolyte, a native daughter of the beautiful town of Soufriere. You’re at home there and no stranger to your folks. That was a close one, but a victory just the same. Soufriere have not changed, one term in, next time out, that’s Soufriere for you. I trust you’ll do well, trusting in the Lord; but remember this, the ‘Times we’re living in right now’ are not normal. See what’s going on all over the world. You’re living on a ROCK sticking out of the Sea, I don’t want to be an alarmist – but keep praying, as He said, He can come like a thief in the night – that little Church on Church Street, is where I made my first Communion, and I cherish the moment. All whom I knew have gone, but I hope young ALEXANDER is still around. God Bless
