120 in Saint Lucia to get training in seaweed disposal and manufacturing

(PRESS RELEASE) — The National Conservation Authority (NCA) in collaboration with the Office of the Prime Minister (OPM), Department of Agriculture, Fisheries, Natural Resources and Cooperatives, the Ministry of Equity, Social Justice, Local Government and Empowerment and the National Apprenticeship Program will be conducting training exercises targeting 120 individuals on the proper method of handling sargassum seaweed for manufacturing as well as for disposal.

These trainees are residents of four communities adversely impacted by the influx of the sargassum, namely Dennery, Praslin, Micoud and Vieux Fort.

The training exercise, which will commence on May 29, 2019 and conclude on June 3, 2019, aims to prepare these individuals to participate in the implementation phase designed to last for nine months in the first instance.

Sargassum (seaweed)

The NCA has worked and continues to work closely with Algas Organics, a local entity involved in converting sargasssum into value-added products, by providing the company with over 160,000 pounds of sargassum.

This sargassum project will not only create employment for residents in the targeted communities but will also ensure that these communities do not continue to be affected by the large influx of the seaweed.

Algas Organics was founded by Johanan Dujon in 2014, against the backdrop of one of the most severe Sargassum seaweed influxes to hit St. Lucia and the wider Caribbean.

The National Conservation Authority is a statutory organization which is an entity of the Ministry of Equity, Social Justice, Local Government and Empowerment. It was established by an Act of Parliament in 1999 and its mandate includes the identification, management and conservation of natural assets including beaches, coastal and protected areas.

The first training is scheduled for Vieux Fort on May 29, 2019.

    I Proclaim on the rooftop that the “King is coming”! I announce to the ends of the earth, that the “King is coming”. And that the days of Noah are here. “Prepare ye the way of the Lord and make straight his paths.” Tell all the world that I am coming back soon. “I am coming for those who have laid their burdens down”. In the name of Jesus. Amen.
    The father says: Do not let the enemy have your souls. Remain steadfast for I have not forsaken you and the end of all things is near. This will not be stopped as this nation is a stiff-necked, prideful people who feel no need for me. I will soon show them they need me and I indeed I am Almighty God, as I take every comfort away from them. A plan has been devised against my people, by one who strives to get ahead amongst those that do not believe in me. This plan will be carried out soon and many shall die because of it, but death is not the worse. For those who live shall suffer cruelly than those who are taken.
    Watch for this emerging world leader to appear on the scene. For it will be in the name of peace but for another purpose. Soon my people will have no where to hide. A tragedy is coming that is so immense, so widespread and its effect that all the world will mourn with America. This tragedy will bring about a financial crisis like nothing before it. The shock will cause all to take an inventory of their lives. Many lost will run to me then, to know more of me and you must be ready for this time. You must be ready to answer their enquiries about me. You must be walking in my ways to model me before them. I will begin soon to call more of my aging saints’ home to me. I do not desire they see this tragedy. These are the ones who have served me long and well and their rewards are great in heaven. The scope of this tragedy will be shocking, many souls will be lost in what is going to happen. This is my last judgement call to the world, to turn away from their sins and turn to me, to give me their hearts. At the same time many who know me shall turn away, blaming me for this tragedy and laying down their faith. Satan shall enter their hearts then and their end shall be far worse than their beginning. Hold tight to your faith, my precious children. I will take of you my precious child. Man’s minds have now way to comprehend what will come to this earth. Lean on me and learn to have my peace in all the chaos. Ready yourselves my people for the time to shine is upon you. Only a few more tests; only a few more tests. I am the “beacon of truth” I am the “light of the world”. Proud and arrogant men of the earth. Sitting in high places, I will throw down your high places. You refuse to humble yourselves before me, so I will humble you now. “King of Babylon”, hear my words. My house will not be divided by you, my land will not be divided by you. You mock my prophets and messengers and in doing this, you mock me. Behold my wrath is kindled against your nation. The beast time has come. My words are “life”, his words are death and lies. Meditate on these I give to you. Repent now and return from all sin. Read my words and live!
    * These are the words of –Yahuwah and his son Yahushua Mashiach.
    God the Father, the Great King wants his name to be promoted in the four corners of the earth. Repent now; get baptized and receive the gift of the Holy Spirit, those of you who are in the valley of decision. Do not procrastinate any longer but go ahead and choose God, for when the door and the books are closed no one will be able to enter in. God is sending warnings after warnings. We are in the End Times and he does not want ANYONE to Perish. Time is running out, get saved now while you have time. He is the only way to salvation. Amend your ways and you will be allowed to remain in the land. Let those who have ears to hear and those who have eyes to see. Repent now! Remain strong, be bold, courageous and steadfast in your faith.
    Credit to Brother Shomrim Ben Yahshua for my reference, may God bless you my, brother.

    • Winter is coming. The Evangelicals are playing Games of Thrones in the US. Soon they will bring the burning at the stake for non-believers as in the Medieval Ages. Winter is coming.
