Jamaican Ark

SEEKING refuge from an apocalyptic flood they say will destroy Jamaica, a Pentecostal congregation has left their jobs and homes to live in their Kingston church. Ten adult members of the Angels of God Sabbath Church and their 14 children have been living in the church since 12 April, and say they will stay there indefinitely.
