The Jerry Jarvis Show at Christmas time can turn into a Gospel Fest

Jerry Jarvis

The Jerry Jarvis Show during the Christmas festivities, is quickly becoming an annual event in Montserrat, adding a welcome change to the usual secular activities for the more ardent Christian and a sense to the real Christmas story and meaning.

Nurse Mary Ann Ryan, was honored for her 30 plus years in nursing. Special recognition was also given to her from the government of Montserrat (Chief Minister’s Office, the honorable Rueben T. Meade) who presented her with a citation describing her work as a nurse with all the credits.

Carlton “Funkyman” Allen was honoured for his many money contributions to organizations that affect the elderly and his many other awards. Sir Howard Fergus who made the presentation stated if anyone here really deserves an award, it was Carlton “Funkyman” Allen.

Miss Vercil Edwards was honored for her many years working with the elderly and the Old Peoples Welfare Association.

The Miss Mary Fenton Award went to Miss Flora Martin a local gospel singer.

Other singers on the program were Joseph Daley who came in from Birmingham, England, Young Nia, and Lona O’garro who are local singers.

Award presenter Barrister-at-Law Mr. David Brandt told the audience that the Government of Montserrat should honor Jerry Jarvis, no later than 2011.

The honorable Chief Minister Reuben T. Meade also a presenter came behind and agreed that the government of Montserrat will honor Jerry Jarvis in 2011, so the former DJ and music icon who turn to Jesus will now be in the Montserrat hall of fame he would say amen.

Jarvis said that he would like every old person on the island to be there, “if they can take hassle.”

After the awards event, the night was turned over to special guest USA Evangelist Bridget Blucher, who went out of her way to travel to Montserrat for the special occasion. From the beginning of her performance it was clear that most of the crowd came to see the lady in action “The place was on fire from start to finish,” as some of the audience described.

Jarvis described, “This sister with strong delivery of song is among the singers worldwide, this sister was exceptional.”

Jarvis like many others thought, “the video captured by the good folks at GIU might not give you full essence, you needed to be there.”

“Locals and visitors will remember this night for a very long time,” Jarvis concluded.

Chief Minister Meade stated that he would like evangelist Jerry Jarvis to organize a gospel fest for Montserrat that will be 3 days of gospel music on the island. The singing evangelist Bridget Blucher said of the Chief Minister’s comment about the gospel fest. “That means I have to come back.”

The whole of Montserrat may come out to hear this sister if she should return, Jerry Jarvis said, as he expressed thanks to some folks like Mr. Alfred Molyneaux of Boston MA, ‘for just giving $1,000.00 to help out with what  he is doing.’ Joseph “Electric” Allen ‘for taking the tab at Tropical Mansions’; Joseph Daley for the pounds he gave out of his wallet; Bishop Melroy Meade for providing us with good sound equipment; Herman Sargeant at ZJB radio (my behind the scenes manager); and to Rose Willock for setting up the table for the awards. Bernadine Collins and Miss Eleanor Silcott for assisting with the Elderly.

Finally he thanked all who came and packed the place inside and outside.
