Evangelism – The Heart of the Christianity!
 
Greetings from Abbotsford! Today, I will have the privilege to participate in the joint evangelistic campaign (Church in the Valley (CIV) & Abbotsford Churches) at the CIV. Pastor Doug Batchelor is the speaker for the series which started last evening and will run until next Sabbath. Also, Pastor Ern Brake is concluding a week long evangelism at the Mission Church today, providing an opportunity for the interested people to transition and continue the studies with Pastor Doug Batchelor at the CIV. Please pray for these evangelistic efforts and others that are happening around the Conference and especially for the precious souls who are being touched and transformed by the messages!
 
In my devotional time this morning, I read an inspired quotation that reminded me of our mission as a church and individuals. I pray that it also stirs your heart to fulfill the Great Commission (Matt. 28:18-20). “Evangelism, the very heart of Christianity, is the theme of primary importance to those called to herald God’s last warning to a doomed world. We are in time’s closing hours, and the advent message, proclaimed to make ready a people prepared for our Lord’s return, must swell to a loud cry reaching the uttermost parts of the earth.” (EGW, Evangelism, 5)
 
May God bless each and everyone of us as we join hands to do His work in our communities -- where He has placed us to shine for Him as an unified body of believers.
 
Please pray for the Youth Retreat (60 participants) with Nathan Wahl at Camp Hope this weekend.
 
Happy Sabbath!
 
In His Service,
 
Wesley Torres, D.Min.
