The parade was as a result of several months of planning where the leaders met to discuss the issues facing our beautiful and greatly loved town. During the discussions the leaders thought of an event that would best express God’s love to the residents of San Pedro as a message to the community. That is when the idea of a Bible Parade was presented by Pastor Alex Tzib of Emmanuel Pentecostal Church and embraced by the other leaders and pastors.
Armed with the Holy Bible and energized with their beliefs the participants moved along Pescador Drive and ended at the Old Football Field chanting, singing and with several well decorated and colorful floats all surrounding the Bible with Scripture verses on placates. Live gospel bands and live music was also provided by Lighthouse Christian radio on FM 101.3 blasting through the principal streets and electrifying the town.
Area Representative and Minister of Tourism and Area Representative, Honorable Manuel Heredia also had the opportunity to address the congregation. In his address Heredia explained that the churches are the root of Christianity in our town and in the Nation and it plays a vital part in the education of the children and the growth of the community of San Pedro Town. Lighthouse Christian Radio Ministry and all of the participating churches and pastors would like to thank all those who participated and contributed to the historical event and for making it a reality.
