    Jesus please provide for those in need they’re still children do not allow people to walk past them just because they’re homeless we really must remember it could have been us are someone close to us just because a person live on the street that doesn’t mean they’re not educated they’re human beings just like you & i shame on us when we do these things we must give to those in need regardless of where they live and how they look God Lord Jesus help us to be more like you….πŸ™

    • Oh my word….Jamaica is supposed to be a Christian country. Where is the love for your neighbors. They forget God is watching. The Bible says the things we do unto the least of the people you have done it unto the Lord. Payment and judgement day is coming. Lord be with your suffering people. This is abuse and God is taking notes. πŸ™πŸΎπŸ™πŸΎπŸ™πŸΎπŸ™πŸΎ

      @Twala 777 we shouldn’t have to wait Upon others to move before we can move to help us in need Jesus came on earth to heal is children & die for all our sins & when he was here he didn’t look down on others in need & he gave food to those in need has well Jamaica is a land that is very bless by God but he’s still waiting for us out to cry out to him & repent of our weakness Jesus Christ knows our hearts completely so weather we want to give to those in need are not God sees our hearts. …. Mark 12:31 and the second is like, namely this , thou shalt love neighbors as thyself. There is none other commandment greater than these. When we love God completely and care for others as we care for ourselves then we can truly love others too & fulfilled the intent of the ten Commandments and the other old Testament laws. So whenever we are uncertain about what to do, we must ask ourselves which course of action is best democrats when it comes to love for God and the love for others. True obedience comes from the hearts so whenever we give we should never expected anything in return if we are really giving from the heart so Since all the old Testament commands lead to Christ, then we should follow in his footsteps in love in faith in Jesus himself. Jesus teach us your ways in Jesus name amen.πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™ you have a bless day & remember Jesus loves you .πŸ™Œ

    Most honorable prime minister plz see if you could send out some food n water and toiletries for the homeless during this time because they relied on organization like poor for the poor etc. To supply most of there daily needs but with the lock down there is no one to help them,so play make reservation with some institutions to help plz….but I think that was something you should have on the list because they are still human who need d help.

  8. Lord please provide for your children.

    I feel exactly the way they feel. I haven’t been shopping as often as I would have wanted, and probably eating as often as I needed to, because of the lockdown. The government should have thought twice because implementing their plans for lockdown.
