A well-known community activist, religious leader and businessman from West Farm Khrystus Wallace has publicly remembered a young woman in her 20s, Alisha Dunrod, who was the victim of a recent deadly stabbing incident.
As shared by him in a social media Facebook post on Thursday 6th October 2022: “As a child, Alisha was one of the most faithful and loyal members of our Gospel Organizations. She was always at CHURCH on SUNDAYS, midweek Bible Study and Prayer on Wednesdays and Youth Fellowship on Fridays.”
He recalled a conversation he had with her the day before she died saying ” Although Alisha moved out of our Trinity Community when she became an adult, she remained very close to me and would still attend special events of our Gospel Ministry. She remained in contact via whatsapp. It is interesting to note that the SUNDAY, the day before she died, she sent me a message on whatsapp having listened my sermon for the day which said, “AMEN and don’t forget me.” I responded OK because I had promised to do something for her not know she was going to die the next day.”
He said she grew up in The West Farm, Trinity Parish, St. Kitts community and attended The Bronte Welsh Primary School and The Verchilds High School.
According to Wallace: “She received most of her childhood spiritual guidance and personal life training through THE VICTORY CENTRE, a registered Children and Youth Church and Dare 2 Be Different International, a gospel YOUTH community group and charity.”
Giving more details about the deceased, he commented:
Alisha loved to help in the KITCHEN and also liked to come on Saturdays to convert KVK ENTERPRISES into a CHURCH for Sunday Service. She was humble, kind and very expressive and like to SUCK HER FINGER. Alisha was full of LOVE. Alisha was FULL OF LOVE. She loved to tell me, “Brother Khrystus, you just believe in us eh. You does make us feel like we can CONQUER THE WORLD.”
“A few years ago, we gave Alisha an opportunity to enter our Dare 2 Be Different International Vacation Bible School Pageant and she was overjoyed and she told everyone how HAPPY she was to have been chosen. Although she didn’t place, like all the CHILDREN, she was SHOWERED with alot of gifts still,” he also stated.
