Letter to the Editor

In at least two press conferences DFID indicated that they are prepared to provide ‘’EXPERTS’’ to examine any proposals for the development of power systems here on Montserrat ‘’BRING THEM ON’’ say we, and the sooner the better. The island knows that one group has been asking the various administrations to provide the necessary documents to proceed with both a new diesel generation system and exploit Geothermal for Montserrat’s use. They started with education leaflets, expression of interest forms and various solutions over the last 5 years. We have no fear of competition as long as the playing field is LEVEL. DFID and the government have indicated that they have had many offers, two of which were rejected when details of their bids indicated they did not benefit the island only their company’s shareholders. The authorities MUST make it clear to all potential bidders that; All offers must be totally TRANSPARENT There must be NO confidentially clauses All offers will be presented to the people of Montserrat for their evaluation There shall be no hidden modifications to the specs as happened with the LIAT/WINAIR bids. The winner will be that which offers the best deal for the people of the island and retains the geothermal asset in the hands of the people now and in the future. Montserrat Geothermal are confident that their offer will be the best as it is based on a company established on Montserrat with its shares in the hands of the people and having a team dedicated to the provision of the maximum benefits for its shareholders——-

Montserratians here on island and in the wider diaspora. We must all remember three things

A) All companies are in business to make money for their shareholders

B) The shareholders in the case of Montserrat Geothermal are the people of Montserrat.

C) We all need power, no one can do without electricity.! Utilities are better than government bonds, they never fail. Which is more than can be said for banks and insurance companies.

We must all remember that we will only get one shot at this fantastic opportunity it will have huge and lasting effects on not only those here now but their children grandchildren and generations to come.

Yours looking to the future

    Dear Sir/Madam,
    I kindly submit the following important article for publishing. Thank you very much.
    Respectfully,
    Simeon James

    Politely Ask About How Holy Spirit Works!
    Some persons are already asking and having doubts about how some feel holy spirit works. What do the Scriptures show? Luke 1:67 shows that holy spirit caused Zechariah to prophesy. At Acts 1:8, Jesus told his followers that holy spirit will give them power to be his witnesses to the furthest ends of the earth. (See Acts 4:31) Holy spirit anointed Jesus, giving him power to do good as Acts 10:38 proves. (See Luke 4:17, 18) Peter was moved to preach while filled with holy spirit; Apollos also. Acts 4:8; Acts 18:25. Some persons upon whom the apostle Paul laid his hands received holy spirit and began to prophesy and spoke in tongues; this of course, before speaking in tongues stopped after the faithful apostles’ death. Acts 19:6; 1 Corinthians 13:8. The aforementioned are ways holy spirit was used on Christians. There is NO indication in the Scriptures of holy spirit causing people to get pushed on the ground, to scream, to make convulsions or other weird actions. Rather, holy spirit is connected to giving Christians strength to preach, to carry out God’s Will. Politely ask your religious leader(s) about this matter. Respectfully ask: “What useful purpose does being pushed down, screaming, or other strange actions serve? Does holy spirit really cause these actions in people? Do the Scriptures support these actions as proof of someone having holy spirit?” Etc. I respect any person’s right to believe what he/she wishes. However, due to doubts that many are having about how some claim holy spirit operates on Christians, it is very important to question how holy spirit really works, so we can get the Scriptural Truth and hopefully, God’s approval! John 4:23, 24; John 8:32; Matthew 7:21-23.
