House Recipient: Winston George Evans or “Bobby”
Bobby is an active member of the Bethel congregation. He is a former choir and Men’s Fellowship member.
Anna-Kay Henry-McGregor, Pastor Bethel United Church
Bobby was born in Hampstead in July of 1957. He calls himself half and half because Hampstead is halfway between Kingston and St Mary. He was baptized in Duke St United Church, Kingston 47 years ago and has walked his Christian walk ever since. He is the eldest of two boys. He worked in Government Office Printing, Kingston for 15 years then as a baker in St Catherine for 14 years until 2006. He hasn’t worked for many years due to anxiety/depression issues. He lived with his Aunt and cousins in Harmony Hall until May 2020, then moved to be with his mom and younger brother at Lyndale (story on video). Bobby has been a member of Bethel United for 11 years, he actually went thru the Great Banquet with CSI in 2013.
After the CSI team finished the build and dedicated the house to Bobby, his church family came in and added several finishing touches. They blessed him with a more modern bathroom, flooring, and several added elements to make his house a home! Praising God for all that He is doing in Bobby’s life and the life of HIS church.
Work has begun on the house build site. Bethel Church has decided to add on a bathroom rather than our traditional pit toilet (at their cost). So the guys staying working on the foundation for that addition so it has time to cure before we arrive for the main event. Next week we will dig the pit that we normally would and the upgraded plumbing will drain to it.

Day 1 | Today the CSI Jamaica staff was able to build the foundation for the house, start the walls and get 2 sides up! It was a dry day and that’s always a blessing on a job site.
WATCH THE DEVOTION about one minute in on this video and meet each of the team!
Day 2 | Watch the video and see where we are building – from the street and also learn more about the area, how Bobby will get his water. The walls are coming together along with a door and window.
Day 3 | Dedication Day
We officially hand over the keys to Bobby. The day is spent dedicating the home to God and praying over it. It’s a beautiful service, watch the video and enjoy Bobby singing us a song as well.
