ACUM’s Schools Observe Day of Prayer

By Cheryl Rolle

For the second time during this quinquennium, the Adventist schools within the Inter-American Division of Seventh-day Adventists will be observing the Day of Prayer. Celebration of the Day of Prayer began in 2011 as a part of the Constant in Prayer initiative, a program of the Adventist Church in Inter-America designed to inspire its members to engage in a consistent and regular prayer life.
This year, the day will be observed on Wednesday, March 7. The Adventist schools in the Atlantic Caribbean region will join their sister schools throughout Inter-America in a day dedicated to prayer activities aimed at teaching students the value of prayer in their lives and encouraging the study of the Bible. Community leaders and civil servants will be invited to participate, allowing them the opportunity to get in touch with the Creator through prayer.

Participating with the Education Department of the Atlantic Caribbean Union in its celebration will be Pastor Samuel Telemaque, Associate Personal Ministries and Sabbath School Director of the Inter-American Division of Seventh-day Adventists, who will speak to the students, teachers, staff, guests, and church leaders at Bahamas Academy in the South Bahamas Conference, Nassau, Bahamas.

The epicenter of the celebration for the Education Department of the Inter-American Division will be at the University of the Southern Caribbean in the Caribbean Union in Trinidad where Elder Israel Leito, president of the Adventist Church in Inter-America will speak to all of the Adventist educational institutions in Inter-America. His presentation may be heard at www.interamerica.org.
