Hafa Adai Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
It is an exciting time in Guam-Micronesia Mission as this first digital edition of Tropical Isles heads to inboxes around the world. After many years of silence, Tropical Isles is back with inspiring stories and news and information about all things Guam-Micronesia Mission. Whether you are a current, former, or future GMM missionary you will be encouraged and motivated as you read each monthly newsletter and see all that God is doing in this beautiful and culturally rich part of the world’s vast mission field.
For those of you who like statistics, here are a few current ones that describe the territory of Guam-Micronesia Mission and the work of the Seventh-day Adventist church in this region.
April 10-13 – Many of the churches throughout GMM participated in a short “seed sowing” evangelistic series that began Wednesday evening and finished Sabbath evening. Churches on Guam used the Voice of Prophecy series “The Appearing” that featured a 30-minute documentary style video by Shawn Boonstra followed by a 30-minute interactive Bible study lesson. Positive reports are coming out from the churches as members and visitors have shared how much they liked the format of mixing video and small group Bible study into one evening program. Each church is following up on visitors who have expressed interest in taking Bible studies.
April 20-21 – Palau hosted a Church Revitalization Summit led by Dr. VicLouis Arreola III, Director for Asian Pacific Ministries for the North American Division. Sixty-one church leaders and members from all the congregations on Palau completed the course and are working together to revitalize God’s work in this beautiful island community.
Several additional events that took place in April and will be reported in the next Tropical Isles edition.
We solicit your prayers as we press forward to reach the many unentered corners of GMM territory. Thank you for your on going encouragement and support for the work and workers who are dedicated to sharing the gospel of JesusChrist and truths of Scripture in our region.
Blessings to each of you and your families from all of us here at Guam-Micronesia Mission.
