Holy al­liance

Daily Observer (Jamaica) - - SPORT -

It is about play­ing domi­noes for trans­for­ma­tion and that it is very im­por­tant to all as­pects of life and we don’t want to leave any­one out, and so we have de­cided to take the churches as well,” Davis said.

Christo­pher Hutchin­son, se­nior Pas­tor at the Duhaney Park New Tes­ta­ment Church of God, wel­comed the move by NADB to in­clude the churches in its pro­gramme.

“This ini­tia­tive to have a domino tour­na­ment is a very good idea. We be­lieve that sport is a medium to bring peo­ple to­gether, to bring com­mu­ni­ties to­gether and it helps def­i­nitely to forg­ing life skills with build­ing that kind of in­ter­ac­tion; that kind of com­mu­ni­ca­tion be­tween per­sons,” he noted.

Carl Mitchell, the Na­tional Sports Min­istry di­rec­tor for the New Tes­ta­ment Churches, also shared his view about the new step.

“We have been go­ing around pro­mot­ing this [domino tour­na­ment] and hence a lot of churches are al­ready aware of this com­pe­ti­tion... it is just a mat­ter of time when they will be able to be a part of it as time pro­gresses.

“This domino com­pe­ti­tion is re­ally im­por­tant, and it is not only for the com­pe­ti­tion alone, but it is also the peo­ple as well. When we have re­alised that most of the cor­ner shops, most of the lit­tle bars and even any­where in the com­mu­ni­ties, you will al­ways [be] see­ing per­sons play­ing domi­noes,” Mitchell noted.
