Kids Kingdom preschoolers were abuzz with excitement as the school celebrated Community Helpers/Career Day.
Youngsters dressed as doctors, nurses, chefs, sports coaches, police officers, educators and reverends to associate themselves with the community helper/career professional each student most desired to emulate. Proprietor and principal of Kids Kingdom Preschool & Nursery Sandy King said, "Today was a very informative day for our preschoolers as we celebrated Community Helpers/Career Day.
"We wanted our students to know who is responsible for giving aid to our communities hence we decided to have actual police officers, nurses, chefs, a soccer coach, educator and a pastor come in and speak with our students about their individual responsibilities within the community."
With eyes wide in wonderment the students attentively listened as Eight Mile Rock Clinic registered nurse Jennie Odias carefully explained some of the responsibilities nurses have which include; taking caring of the elderly, making home visits to assess the medical care needs of those persons who are not able to come to the clinic for treatment, dressing wounds, providing assistance to doctors, check a patient's vitals signs and giving doctor prescribed medication to patients.(Read full story)
GBCC share its plans for Grand Bahama
FN News Reporter
The Grand Bahama Christian Council (GBCC) is planning an array of events in the upcoming weeks for the island, beginning with its newest initiative – a Youth Christian Council.
On Saturday, May 18 at the Revelation Faith Church on #64 Jobsen Avenue at 10:00 a.m., the GBCC will be meeting with all pastors and they are inviting them to bring their youth and youth leaders in hopes of selecting 13 young people, who will sit on their board of 13 senior executives and act as a youth replica to the Christian Council.
Bishop Arnold Pinder Jr. president of the GBCC said, "we are meeting because we want to fulfill a passion that God has given to us from three years ago and that is to form a Youth Christian Council. Our goal is to train them in the ways, laws and by-laws of the GBCC so that we can get our youth involved as much as possible.
"Without the participation and involvement of the youth, the Christian Council will die, so therefore we want to motivate as many young people as possible to come out this Saturday and take part in this great move of God," said Pinder.
The GBCC is looking for youths between the ages 18 to 30 and the only requirements are that they must be saved, and they must be involved in church youth activities.(Read full story)

Dear Dr. Pam,
You printed an article in November during Thanksgiving of last year, about your mother and childhood. I was very touched by it. Would you please print it again?
Here it is. I still get choked up reading it. With pleasure I have reprinted it, after all, it is the Mothers' Day season.
I STILL THANK GOD FOR SUGAR BAGS
How precious and uplifting are fond childhood memories. Sometimes my heart weeps for many children today, who are deprived of the opportunity to have decent and memorable childhoods. Whenever I want to entertain my daughters, I would tell them of past occurrences in my life and share some of the proverbs that my mother, in particular, shared with us.
As a child, I can vividly recall the structured running of our household and how my father provided for us, as well as, others who presented with needs. But there was a particular activity, in which my mother engaged, that left an indelible mark on my life. (Read More)
