In Loving Memory

Pastor Esau R. Brooks was born in Roatan, Honduras, on April 26, 1933, and started preaching when he was just seventeen years of age. He arrived in the Cayman Islands for the first time in December 1951, having been invited by a church to preach the Gospel there.

Brother Brooks met his wife Elizabeth Powell-Brooks in Cayman in February 1952, and they were married in January 1955. After the wedding, Pastor Brooks and his wife initially resided in Roatan. When their children became of school age, they moved back to the Cayman Islands. God blessed Brother and Sister Brooks with three girls and two boys.

As a missionary and gifted evangelist, Pastor Brooks and his wife traveled extensively and regularly went to Honduras and many locations within the United States to attend and preach at revivals and camp meetings. During his visits to Honduras, Pastor Brooks was involved in many civic and community projects and was instrumental in setting up the first bilingual school there. He established twelve congregations in Honduras, one in Miami, Florida, and one in Grand Cayman.

Brother Brooks passed away on Tuesday, August 18, 2015, at his home in Breakers, Grand Cayman. Brother Brooks was 82 years of age when he passed away.
