Christopher Roberts

As a thirty-plus young man, he shows a heart of service to others way beyond his years.

He is an active Evangelist, Activist and Founder of The Lord’s Army Outreach Ministry. He was born in North Trinidad and lived at #6 Picton Road, Laventille, where he first attended St. Phillips Government Primary School.

However, his childhood was not an ideal one, and he left school at a tender age to grow up in the streets of Port of Spain. In his adult life he became a believer in Christ Jesus and this became the turning point for him. A turning point that included a training under the Civilian Conservation Corps.

He is now the Founder of a non-profit organization, The Lord’s Army Outreach Ministry, which is involved in evangelism, charity and community work. One of their main events is

MAN UP: a Mighty Men’s March, geared in particular towards the men. He evangelizes throughout communities in Trinidad & Tobago.

Christopher is a man with a heart and passion for young people. He wants to see young men and women rise up and find their true purpose in life, just like he did. It is this same passion and desire that has motivated him to offer himself as a Candidate for your Constituency.

Addressing the Atlantic Coun­cil’s Front Page event yesterday, the Prime Minister said: “We would like to see a dispassionate, early review of the US “scorched-earth policy” here since as the United Nations assessment confirms what we always knew, and that is that the ineffective, harsh policies of unilateral sanctions are contri­buting immensely to widespread, additional, indiscri­minate human suffering in this Caribbean nation which needs help, a compassionate ingredi­ent which is not beyond US leadership.

The Ministry of Foreign and Caricom Affairs was able to secure from the United States government in writing a commitment that the repatriation flight with 100 Venezuelans on a Venezuelan aircraft would not attract US sanctions.

In view of this, Young said he signed off on the approval for the aircraft to enter Trinidad and Tobago to take the Venezuelans back home at 6 p.m. yesterday.

Young stressed there was “no stumbling” in the manner in which the Government handled this issue.
