Seventh-day Adventist volunteers have assisted in the construction of the first church in Cuba in 16 years under the auspices of Adventist supporting ministry Maranatha Volunteers International.

Thirty volunteers traveled to Cuba in June to work alongside local crews in raising the two-story church in Cárdenas, a popular coastal tourist resort of 137,000 people located 70 miles (115 kilometers) east of the capital, Havana, as well as to hold dental clinics and children’s outreach activities.

All eyes focused on computers, tablets, and smartphones as thousands of deaf people across Brazil watched a special Seventh-day Adventist evangelistic series live-streamed on Facebook and YouTube.

The number of viewers soared to 31,489 for the second annual “Evangelibras” (Evangelism in Sign Language) event, which aims to both share the gospel message and undergird the Adventist Church’s commitment toward the deaf community, organizers said. Last year 3,239 people watched the program, which was only aired on YouTube.

On Thursday, June 23, the British people voted by a margin of 3.8 percent to leave the European Union. With a turnout of 72 percent, 51.9 percent of the electorate made the historic decision, changing 43 years of European history since the United Kingdom joined the European Community in 1973.

Many students of Bible prophecy see Brexit as a fulfillment of the prophecy of Daniel 2:43, which predicts that the various nations of Europe “shall not cleave” one to the other. This was well expressed by an Adventist Review TV special released Friday.
