Synopsis: Beginning his life as a young boy walking to and from school in his bare feet, Wilbert Smikle was born and raised in the lonely hills of Manchester, Jamaica, with his eight siblings. It was here that, as a young man, he received a series of visions from God that all came to life before him as he aged. Always wanting to help his family, Mr. Smikle attended school and learned woodworking to earn money.
When World War II began, Mr. Smikle felt called to help the United States and worked farms there under the United States War Food Administration. In America he found the land of opportunity he needed and was able to not only marry and build his home, but also hold a respectable, paying job for many years until the age of retirement. Throughout his memoir, Mr. Smikle shares how he went from a farmer's son to a man whom the Governor General of Jamaica visited personally.
This inspiring story shares one man's fight to help his family, better himself, help many, aid the civil rights movement, and follow God's calling.
About the Author: Wilbert Smikle has lived in Jamaica, the United States, and even England during his many years serving God and others on this earth. He has been a member of the Bethel Presbyterian Church in Plainfield, New Jersey, for over fifty years. Mr. Smikle works to help homeless boys in Jamaica and has even taught high school boys baseball there. He encouraged many who came to the United States for higher education by finding lodging and jobs during summer holidays. He renovated what is now known as the Davyton House in Jamaica and opens it to groups doing volunteer dental work in the community. He is married and has two children.
