In St. Thomas, Andrews University Students Remove Hurricane Debris at Largest Adventist Church

A group of students and leaders from Andrews University recently spent a day clearing out fallen walls, fallen branches and debris from the largest Seventh-day Adventist Church on St. Thomas, destroyed by Hurricane Irma last year.

The group of more than 50 stepped out of a cruise-mission trip in the Caribbean to tidy up the Philadelphia Adventist Church, nestled in the capital city of Charlotte Amalie. The church has been closed since the storm tore up the roof and walls in September.

Youth Ready to Mobilize for Service on Global Youth Day

Thousands of Seventh-day Adventist young people around the world are learning to be the hands and feet of Jesus, to “Be the Sermon,” as the Global Youth Day (GYD) theme states. Through coordinated efforts in each of the 13 World Church regions, youth are recapturing a vision for service and learning there is more to faith than simply going to church.

This initiative began in 2013 under former Seventh-day Adventist Youth Director Gilbert Cangy’s leadership. It is one day set aside for youth (primarily ages 15-25) to specifically focus on doing acts of kindness in their communities.

GYC Convention Emphasizes Practical Outreach

It’s an unusually hot December day when Janelle Glass walks by the row of yellow school buses lined up outside of the Phoenix Convention Center, the scourging heat tanning her Tennessean winter skin. It’s Friday at the annual GYC convention, to veteran “GYC’ers” also known as outreach day.

A bus stops at the valet section, and Janelle hops on, finding a spot on the front seat. “The first time I went door to door I was in Washington state for the Youth Rush [literature evangelism] program,” she says. One of the books she sold was The Great Controversy, which is the same book she has with her today, one copy for a divine appointment.

A New Year’s Message from Adventist World Church President Ted N.C. Wilson

As another year draws to a close, I would like to send my warmest greetings to our worldwide Seventh-day Adventist church family, and take a few moments to reflect on this unique moment in time—a time when we leave the old year behind and step into the new.

Certainly, we have all seen that life on this earth often brings a mixture of the good, and the not so good, of joy and of sorrow, of triumph, and sometimes, of tragedy. As those who love the Lord and follow Him, however, we have the wonderful promise of His continual presence through it all, as He has said, “I will never leave you nor forsake you” (Heb. 13:5).
