Bishop Fritz Stubbs is indeed a “walking miracle.” In the year 1993, he was told by his physician that he had just six months to live. At the end of three months, he decided that he wanted to be buried beside his mother on Cat Island. He, therefore, packed his bags and returned to the place of his birth to die, as he told his family and friends.
Today, 25 years later, he continues to serve faithfully as pastor of Miracle Revival Fellowship Bible Move Inc. Church (M.R.F) in Dumfries, Cat Island and Overseer for the district including the Turks and Caicos Islands. In a vision, he explained that God said to him, “I’m not through with you yet.”
He took God at His word and serves devotedly in the vineyard of the Lord. With his dutiful wife at his side, he serves God by ministering to the spiritual, emotional and physical needs of others. He preaches the word of God in season and out of season and lives by God’s standard of holiness.
Bishop Fritz and Mother Clara Mae were joined in holy matrimony on March 18, 1964. They were blessed with eight children, three of whom are deceased. They celebrated their 47th Pastoral Anniversary and 54th Wedding Anniversary on Sunday, August 12, 2018, at M. R. F. Bible Move Inc. Church (M.R.F) in Dumfries, Cat Island.
The chosen theme was quite fitting for the occasion, ‘A Celebration of Life and Love.’ Minister Sterling Moss was the dynamic conductor, while Pastor Howard Stuart gave inspirational words to motivate the congregation and charged us to honor those who give so much of themselves, while they are alive. Both the speaker and conductor were from their M.R.F home church in New Providence.
Bishop and Mother Stubbs welcomed guests from the settlements throughout Cat Island, New Providence and Grand Bahama. Pastor Paul Mullings and his wife Mother Margaret Mullings, along with members of his congregation of Mt. Calvary Baptist Church in Sea Grape, Eight Mile Rock, Grand Bahama were a welcomed addition to the guest list.
Moving tributes came from the many pastors, leaders, and friends in attendance, but more emotional ones came from his children and grandchildren. They all spoke very highly of Bishop Stubbs and described him as a man of integrity, strong faith in the Lord, a humanitarian and an integral part of the Cat Island communities. They own and operate the C & S General Store, supplying the needs of the community in the settlement of Dumfries and the outlying settlements on cat Island.
