Christmas Message from the Premier Hon. C. Washington Misick

My fellow Turks and Caicos Islanders, Residents, Guests, and Visitors to our shores: Christmas is an exciting time of the year!

We must not forget the reason for the season. “For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given, and the government will be upon his shoulder. And his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, the Mighty God, the Everlasting Father, the Prince of Peace” - Isaiah 9:6 Christmas is a time of reflection and thanksgiving for the blessings of the holy child and the gift of eternal life his advent has brought to humanity. It is in that spirit we should celebrate with family, friends, neighbours, and countrymen.

It is a time to remember the triumphs and losses of the last year. Triumphs in our achievements and reflections on the memories of those we’ve lost along the way. It is a time to hold family and friends dear around the Christmas tree to express our love and gratitude for all that they mean to us.

It is time to stretch our hands to those in need of help, the same way that God Almighty has stretched his hands to bless us; we should be a blessing onto others. God has been faithful and gracious to our beautiful Turks and Caicos Islands. He has preserved our land, and despite the challenges, we remain a peaceful people and country.

My appeal is that we do not trespass on his favour, but we make every effort to show appreciation because the faces we see are the many faces of God, and those that we help will only add to our own blessings.

My government has made significant efforts to provide for its people and to safeguard our lives and livelihoods and will continue to do so. Thanks to all of you who supported and prayed for us in the last year.

On behalf of the government, myself, my wife, and family, I wish you a very Merry Christmas, a safe and fun-filled time with loved ones and friends. May God bless you, and may He continue to bless our Turks and Caicos Islands. Merry Christmas!
