Augustine Erskine and Jerome Martin both eventually came to work at the Lighthouse as announcers. Augustine is now the Operations Manager at the station and a deacon in Maranatha Baptist Church. Vincent Williams, the fourth friend, faithfully attends Maranatha also. Jerome Martin felt led of the Lord to attend Baptist Bible School in St. Vincent. After graduation he was called as pastor of Maranatha Baptist Church in Antigua where he had come to Christ ten years earlier. Truly the words of II Timothy 2:21 can be said of these former Rastafarians, “If a man therefore purge himself from these, he shall be a vessel unto honor, sanctified, and meet for the Master's use, and prepared unto every good work.” It is such a blessing to watch God's plans unfold. Those who we feared are now our brothers in Christ—and our own pastor. We can surely say, “Is anything too hard for the Lord?” n Augustine Erskine 12 BIMI WORLD – Number 3, 2009
