18. Church Board decision from October 17:
- Adjustment to Budget Allocations will be made. Number of Departmental Directors who have sufficient funds to continue their ministries volunteered to freeze Budget allocation to their departments for the last quarter of the year as follows: AV, Children, VBS, Women, Health, Elders, Prayer, Personal Ministries, Bereavement, Worship, Music & Social Life. Same percentage will continue to be allocated for Evangelism, Community Services, School Subsidy, Adventurers and Youth. The released Budget funds will be made available to reduce deficit in following: Sabbath School, Insurance, Cleaning/Janitorial, Grounds & Snow removal, Communications, Web/Internet, Library, NCD, Men, Pathfinders. - Ministry directors contributing to various aspects of worship are to give support to recommendations made by the Worship Committee to emphasise preparation by participants, to keep the timing to 90 min, and to communicate any changes to either pastor or elders on roster duty for specific Sabbath. Worship is not to be a “show and tell” programming, and must serve as an inspiration to motivate members and visitors for life of ministry.

Praying for the World Project This coming week we will be praying for: Belgium, Belize, Benin, Bermuda, Bhutan, Bolivia, Bosnia More Bible Reading Plans are available at the prayer room and at the Communion Table. Please read the Bible as the necessary personal step toward revival! This coming week we will pray every day for a different country, again with overwhelming differences in exposure to the Gospel and Adventist message. Today – Belgium – a country with small Adventist presence. Mostly urban population. Brussels is the capital of European Union and NATO. The country is in the top 20 developed countries in the world. Yet even here there are ethnic clashes. Walloon-Flemish rivalry and resentments affect the use of language, the economy, politics, religious life and worldviews of both communities. Significant influx of Muslim immigration presents new challenges where 25% of this “Christian Heritage” country is unreached by the Gospel. Sunday we lift in prayer Belize. A small population, size of London city proper, has over 35,000 Adventists. That’s one in every 9, higher than Jamaica! Yet here too are challenges: the Spanish-speaking immigrants with their superstitions, the Mayans with their underlying paganism and the Garifuna with their black magic all need a culturally relevant and sensitive presentation of the true gospel. Monday – Benin, a small African country, in the 20 least developed economies. Adventist presence is relatively small. Largest percentage of people following traditional tribal animism. Muslim tribes are also unreached. Tuesday – the richest Caribbean country – Bermuda. Immigration from poorer Caribbean countries creates disparity. Pray for practical righteousness of believers, where about 6% of population are Adventists. Wednesday – Bhutan. Known as the land of the Dragon (Druk Yul) it is one of world’s least evangelized nations where a Buddhist monarchy further reinforces the hold of tantric magic, complete with the strong occultic influence of pre-Buddhist Bon animism. Christian believers suffer persecution or social ostracism. Thursday – Bolivia, where almost 1% of people are Adventists. Their claim to access the ocean through Chile, and the tension between white elite and natives in regions rich with gas create volatile politics. Pray for peace within and around Bolivia. Friday – Bosnia. A Muslim European country where civil war in the 90s made deep wounds is in the process of recovery. Adventist presence is very small, in percentage similar to Belgium. It is also concentrated among the Serbian minority. Pray for ethnic reconciliation and relational bridges to be open for the Gospel. All these are God’s harvest field, for which the labourers are needed. Pray the Lord of the Harvest to make you a labourer! In service of the Great Shepherd, pastor Alex Golovenko
