TCI:  Prison Inmates in community basketball tournament and told at church:  ‘You are created for More’

#Grand Turk, October 27, 2018 – Turks and Caicos – You may have missed church on Sunday but some inmates from Her Majesty’s Prison did not.  They attended morning service at New Testament Church of God in Grand Turk this past Sunday, with message by Rev Vernon Malcolm.  His sermon was entitled, You are created for more.

Government explained that 19 low risk prisoners led by prison chaplain, Rev Dennis Simmons attended the church service which was called “refreshing”.

There was also a basketball tournament last weekend with inmates challenging some of Grand Turk’s finest on the court.  Game one, last Friday night, went to the HMP Stingers 39-28 over the HJ Robinson Snipers.

The wounded Snipers came back with a vengeance and dominated, beating the HMP Stingers by four points in game two of the basketball tournament.  It was called an historic happening, held at the Overback basketball court.

The series of events last weekend followed a low profile visit by two very high profile government officials namely, Premier Sharlene Robinson and Home Affairs Minister Delroy Williams who, we are told actually spoke with prisoners about conditions at the beleaguered facility.
