GREETINGS & SALUTATIONS
Psalm 105 O give thanks unto the Lord; call upon His name: make known His deeds among the people. Sing unto Him, sing psalms unto Him: talk ye of all His wondrous works. Glory in His holy name: let the heart of them rejoice that seek the Lord. Seek the Lord, and His strength: seek His face evermore. Remember His marvelous works that He hath done; His wonders, and the judgments of His mouth. Welcome to all as we worship our Saviour and King on this blessed Sabbath. Welcome to Ranger Dwight and his wife, an Associate from Adventist Review and host of Nature time 3ABN. We are appreciative of Miss Brenda and the team that spent a week in Cayman, filming Nature Time for 3ABN. This is the first time that the program is filmed outside of America. We express gratitude to all for their support and assistance over the past week. To all those visiting our beautiful island, we say welcome.
World Church Theme
The theme for the World church during this five year period is Revival and Reformation. The first phase of the program is the Constant in Prayer emphasis for 160 days which concluded last weekend. The church in the Inter-American Division was steadfast in prayer, continually interceding for its 117 conferences and missions. The second phase of Revival and Reformation, “Attentive to the Word”, will be launched this weekend, July 22 – 24 in El Salvador. The field leaders and personal ministries directors will be supplied with material to facilitate greater focus on the Word of God. The third phase, “That the World May Know”, will be launched in the Jamaica Union, in February 2012
Evangelist David Campbell along with Musicians, Bible workers and other support personnel, traveled to Guyana to conduct a four week campaign. The services will be available on the internet. We pray for their safety and success as they travel. Support for this mission is welcomed. Contact brother David Campbell for details at 917-0917.
