The predatory instinct of Jamaicans continues to be a huge problem. The international spotlight was cast once again on Jamaica's dark side when two United States missionaries Harold Nichols and Randy Hentzel who were murdered recently. 


Health Minister Dr Christopher Tufton has expressed condolences on behalf of the ministry to the family, friends and colleagues of Hentzel and Nichols who were killed Saturday, April 30.


The missionaries worked in Jamaica for a Pennsylvania-based religious group called Teams for Medical Missions that has been in Jamaica since 1990. Both did evangelism and Bible ministry, built homes and provided health care to various communities. They were killed on their way to check on the foundation of a home they were building for a needy family.


According to the health ministry, each year, there are close to 200 medical missions from all over the world Jamaica, serving all 14 parishes. The services offered include general medicine, optometry, dentistry, counselling, health education, among other areas.
