THE Rev Dr McPhee has received a $50,000 gift to help sail his Thunderbird boats through the 2011 season.
Yesterday, the cheque presentation took place at Compass Point where McPhee thanked Asue Draw's marketing manager Levin Wilson for his company's continued assistance.
"As you are well aware, sloop sailing is a very expensive sport. In order for boats to be able to participate in over 12 regattas per year, it takes corporate companies who are interested and concerned to make those things happen," McPhee stated.
Last year, McPhee said the Asue Company expended over $100,000 in the sailing community as the ...
It wasn't a large turnout, but the five members of Ebenezer Mission Baptist Church's youth group that made an appearance at the church's weekly Tuesday youth meeting took home a powerful message -- to let their dreams fuel their passion and their passion help them to fulfill their dreams.
Former Bahamas National Youth Board member Beaumont Todd told them that they should realize that they are unique, and that the dream God has given them to fulfill is their purpose and destiny while on earth, even though obstacles may come their way. He also told them that they will come across people who will not believe in their dream, but that they should trust God and through their gift and dream He will lead them to fulfill their purpose.
In a test, he asked the teenagers whether either of them knew how many hairs was on their body, from their head to the feet -- and one actually started counting -- but came to the realization that he would not be able to complete his task. Todd told them that while they didn't God knew, and that the Bible says He does, including knowing when they slept and when they were awake. He told them that God knows what goes on even in the secret places of their heart. And that God knows what He put there. And that the dream they have inside their life and their heart is uniquely special to them.
"Don't ever let anyone else tell you that you're not special, that you're not unique," he said to the teens. "No one can do what you can do in this world like you -- that's why you're here."
He told them that people would try to beat them down, may try to discourage them and even try to find reasons to break them down by telling them that they are nothing, but that they have to believe in God's purpose for their lives.
Todd reminded them of the story of Joseph in the Bible.
"Basically Joseph's brothers threw him in a pit, sold him to slavery, basically to say he was so worthless he might as well just be a slave and they didn't want him anywhere close to them or around them. They felt he was no value to them. They did not understand the unique gift and dream that God had put inside Joseph's heart," Todd told the teens.
He reminded them that when Joseph got into Egypt, he was sold from the slave traders that had actually picked him up from his brothers to another person -- Potiphar, and that in Potiphar's house, Joseph went from being a simple slave to head of the house because his owner grew to trust him because he was such a good worker. He told the teenagers that Joseph had also been good looking, and caught the eye of Potiphar's wife who found him quite attractive. And that when the master was away the "kitty cat" tried to play.
"She was like how some of our women are today, very aggressive and didn't wait for Joseph to hit on her, she hit on him. Joseph could have made the mistake and said I have this attractive young woman hitting on me trying to get me into her bed, I can just give in and do it. But he sat, he considered what all he would actually lose -- his master's trust, his self-respect and more importantly he would lose the fact that he knew God had him for a special person. He said no once to the young lady, she let it go she came back again. He said no twice, she let it go. The third time he rejected her, she set up a lie. She got Joseph into her room, but when he saw what she was doing he ran away. She snatched his coat and when the master came home she set up a beautiful lie to say that Joseph was trying to get into his bed. The master ended up locking Joseph up in jail although he did the right thing."
Told reminded the teenagers that while Joseph was incarcerated he held out to the dream that God put in his heart and the principles God gave him to live by and the fact that he believed in the uniqueness that God had given him.
"Joseph rose to the point where the guards and the persons in charge actually trusted him with the other prisoners. When they had problems they would send the prisoners to Joseph for him to help solve them," he said.
Todd said that while Joseph was in jail, the king had become displeased with his baker and cup bearer and that they too were thrown into jail. And that while in jail they both had a dream, went to Joseph and asked if he could help them. He said Joseph translated their dreams -- because Joseph's unique gift from God was that he could tell you what a dream meant.
Because of their uniquness, Todd told the youngsters that every morning they should thank God for the new day that they awaken to, and for the fact that He made them special to His purpose.
"We are all here to do a job -- to live, to enjoy life, to love, to experience, to grow, to fail and to progress," he said. "There will be times in the pursuit of doing what is right and what is good that nobody may believe in you, and nobody may believe in your dream, but regardless, God always watches over you and will never leave you," he told them.
Todd encouraged the teenagers to write down on a piece of paper a quality they each liked about themselves. The responses he got varied from smart to good hearted, softhearted and determined. One of the papers he received was blank, as the teenager could not think of a quality, that Todd said bothered him. In turn he told the youth group meeting that one of the things he liked about himself is that he is a little quirky and that he sometimes has a strange sense of humor.
Like Joseph pursued his dreams, he encouraged them to ensure that they followed theirs.
"Regardless of how persons say the children are lost or have no direction, I believe our children are our greatest help and hope for the future," he said. "And if the children took away nothing else, they should remember the story from Genesis about how Joseph's dream helped to give his life direction and purpose. And that even though he faced difficulties, his trust in God and his gifts are what brought him before great men and helped him fulfill God's purpose.

Nassau, Bahamas - More than 2,000 young people attending
the Royal Bahamas Police Force (RBPF) Summer Youth Camps will dine on the
generosity of Bank of The Bahamas. The donation -- gifts cards for a summer's
