Did you know that our mission fields reported a total of 4,451 baptisms in 2014? Did you know that 21 new churches were planted by our international conferences last year? The membership of Advent Christian churches outside North America is 50,356. The funding of our outreach ministries is primarily dependent upon our annual appeal through Penny Crusade. Last year, the receipts from Penny Crusade funded 87% of the total Outreach operational budget. We are truly grateful for the tremendous support of our missions, missionaries and field leaders. I hope the figures above will be an encouragement to those of you who contributed to the harvest and planting recorded in 2014.

VISION FOR EVANGELISM

Over the past few years, God has given us as Advent Christians the opportunity to be part of something special. What am I talking about? I am talking about the unique privilege we have shared as partners with the Great Commandment network and more specifically with Dr. David Ferguson and his work with the Next Generation of leaders.

A couple of years ago I was asked to put together a group of Advent Christian next generation leaders to participate in what has been called a Vision for Evangelism, a partnership between the Billy Graham library, the Great Commandment network and the Advent Christian General Conference.

News from our Latin America Area Director John Gilbert

La Paz
 

"Misión La Paz" used part of their Holy week to hold a teenage retreat for the young people of the Villas de Guadalupe community of La Paz. The retreat was attended by 12 of the local youth that Pastor Juan Murua and his wife, Eva, have been meeting with over the past several years. The retreat was a time of reflection for the teenagers to focus on what God wanted for them in their lives. The community has trouble with underage drinking and drug abuse. The prayer is that these young folks will see the benefits of living a God designed future.

 
 

 
IF Update
 

My prayer is simple and extends to everyone joining me by reading today's If Team. I hope that your Easter weekend experience was one filled with great joy over all that Jesus has accomplished for us through his sacrifice and victory over death.

 

Sunday night, I watched the new movie called "A.D." produced by Mark Burnett and Roma Downey. I must say, it was quite good, and I am excited to see just how they portray this period in the life of the followers of Christ. Naturally, one would expect them to be saddened by the death of Jesus, their teacher and Savior. For a period of time they were heartbroken over the idea that they would be left without hope for the future, having committed themselves so completely to all that he had done and taught them.
