Easter Message from High Commissioner Eldred E. Bethel

His Excllency Eldred E. Bethel

My fellow Bahamians: It is again my privilege as High Commissioner/Ambassador to extend warmest greeting to all my fellow Bahamians on the occasion of Easter 2017. Easter is one of the most important holidays for Christians. Easter Sunday commemorates the Resurrection of God's Son, Jesus Christ from the dead. In fact the base of Christianity is built on the Resurrection of Jesus Christ.


This Easter, may we always be blessed with love, life and happiness. May our lives be touched by the true meaning of Easter.


As we prepare to celebrate the glory of Jesus’ Resurrection, I encourage you to consider his words to Martha, “I am the resurrection and the life” (John 11:25), and the significance they take on during this time when we are tempted to despair.


Easter is the time when God shows us his ultimate gift of mercy by bringing forth life from death.


On behalf of the staff of the High Commission and my wife, Dawne, it is my hope that that this Easter season bring you peace and happiness always and wishing you and your family a blessed Easter.
