The Premier's Christmas Message 2012
Published on December 15, 2012 Email To Friend    Print Version

My fellow Turks and Caicos Islanders, I am very happy to express my warmest greetings and best wishes to all who are celebrating Christmas. This year, Christmas is unique and dear to my heart because it marks my first Christmas as Premier of the Turks and Caicos Islands and our first Christmas since the restoration of our new Constitution and Ministerial Government. I therefore join with you in celebrating this momentous occasion, recognizing the sense of renewed hope and comfort it brings to us as a people and a community. I again reiterate our commitment and pledge to you that my government and I will do our utmost in ensuring that we will hold fast to all of our promises to you.

Christmas season is a time when our thoughts turn to the real source of joy, love and hope who was born in a humble manger more than 2,000 years ago; and as we join others worldwide in celebrating this single life that changed the world, may we also strive to be a positive influence to those around us for the betterment of our Turks and Caicos Islands.

Customarily, we celebrate the birth of Christmas with Church Services, family gatherings, feasting and great merriment; but this year I would encourage us to be filled with thanksgiving to God for how He has protected us from storms, pestilences, wars, riots and other evils that could have befallen us. Additionally, as we celebrate remember those who are not as fortunate as we are, it could be our neighbor, family, friend, visitor or even a stranger and let us do our best in sharing our Christmas cheer with them.

Right on the heels of Christmas celebrations comes the New Year and I believe that as we look forward to 2013 there are genuine reasons for hope, joy, love, faith and optimism. Some of these reasons include increasing government revenue, reprioritizing spending towards schools and primary health care, economic growth, new investment, increasing tourism, good governance and many others. Remember that faith overcomes doubt; hope conquers despair; and love triumphs over hate. Remember that faith is present when men and women of sound leadership bring love and understanding to the hearts of their fellow man.

Therefore, let us as a people resolve to honor the Spirit of Christmas; strive to keep it throughout the year 2013 and give thanks for Christ's message of love and mercy. Also remember our responsibility and calling to freely and reverently serve our fellow men. This is our charge and this is our purpose and may the joy of the holidays renew our commitment to working together for a future of peace, opportunity, and hope.

On behalf of my Family, my Government and myself, I wish you a Merry Christmas, Good Health and a Prosperous New Year. May God bless you and may God bless these beautiful Turks and Caicos Islands.

Rufus Ewing
Premier
