“Congratulations to Momma Sylvia Penny and the entire Penny family. We know how proud you feel about Michael’s elevation and share in your joy,” said Ms. Liburd, who wished Pastor Michael Penny “every success as he continues his mission as a servant of God, spreading the Gospel throughout his Church, his Community, his Country and beyond.”
Also among the congregation were Leader of the Opposition, the Right Hon. Dr. Denzil L. Douglas; the Hon. Konris Maynard and Dr. Earl Asim Martin
