This special donation took place during the launch of a yearlong celebration in recognition of its 75 years of existence on Saturday January 5, 2019.

Desmond Robinson, Pastor of the Ramble church thanked Mr. Hibbert for his generous contribution and said that the bus will be responsibly used for church and community business.

Hibbert in handing over the keys for the vehicle praised Ramble for molding him into the person he is today.

“I grew up as a poor boy in the Ramble community and all I had at that time was the church,” he recalled “They invested in me and made me who I am this is how I show my appreciation for the impact the church has had on my life," he concluded.

He also pledged that his company will license and insure the vehicle, as well as maintain it for the next 10 years.

After the cutting of the ribbon by Pastor Nevail Barrett, Executive Secretary of Central Jamaica Conference of Seventh-day Adventists (CJC), a special dedicatory prayer was done for the bus by retired Pastor of the Central Jamaica Conference Rufus Anderson, and the church pastor along with fifteen members of the church took the bus for its first spin.

The Ramble Seventh Day Adventist started in the year 1944 under the leadership of Pastor Henry Paul Powell and will celebrate its milestone achievement of 75 years with various activities such as worship services, and other community impacts during the months of January to December 2019.
