There is rejoicing in heaven, not over one, but over 171 precious souls who have accepted Jesus Christ as Saviour.
In keeping with the objectives of Mission Project 2019, under the theme ‘Wholistic Health for Personal and National Transformation’, the North Jamaica Conference of Seventh-day Adventists (NJC) embarked upon a number of health and outreach initiatives for early 2019, to include health fairs, clinics, community cleanup exercises, health run/walk events, cooking classes, health seminars and lectures, exercise classes and gospel outreach programmes.
Health clinics were held in the food market of St. Ann’s Bay, whereas several churches across the parishes of St. Ann and Trelawny conducted health fairs, to include St. Ann’s Bay, Falmouth, Lewis, Discovery Bay, Bounty Hall, Ocho Rios, Wakefield, Reid’s Friendship, Joe Hut, Alps, Deeside, Alexandria, Mt. Edgecombe and Perth Town Seventh-day Adventist Churches.
Moreover, the brethren from the Higgin Town and Lime Hall congregations conducted community clean-up exercises in collaboration with the Health Department.
Thousands of individuals have collectively benefited from the services provided by the Adventist church in North Jamaica, with many expressing great satisfaction with the care and concern extended by the church.
Reacting to the various projects accomplished, President of North Jamaica Conference Pastor Karl Archer posits, "Notwithstanding the many challenges experienced going into the programme, we thank God for the victories gained. We are very encouraged to see more of our members getting involved, even as we continue to advance the Lord's cause in 2019, by touching the lives of our community members, with regard to wholistic health and redemption."
On the other hand, many districts conducted gospel seminars with several pastoral and lay evangelists. The series all had a strong health emphasis. These included Clark’s Town, with Pastor Karl Archer, President of NJC, Reid’s Friendship, with Elder Dane Ellis, Treasurer of NJC, Alexandria, with Evangelist Livingston Burgess, Exchange, with Evangelist David Pryce, St. Ann’s Bay, with Pastor Stephen Bohr and Dr. Tim Reisenberger, among others.
The baptisms represent a 158 percent increase, compared to the corresponding period last year. Also, a few of the initiatives are still ongoing, as the NJC continues to foster total member involvement (TMI).
