First Evangelistic Meeting, Baptism Held in Little Cayman
Communication Department, CIC/ATCU

The Cayman Islands are a group of three islands: Grand Cayman, Cayman Brac, and Little Cayman, which are situated in the western Caribbean Sea. The Cayman Islands Conference of Seventh-day Adventists is one of four fields of the Atlantic Caribbean Union. While the majority of the membership resides and worship in Grand Cayman, there is also an established Seventh-day Adventist church in Cayman Brac.

However, history took place in Little Cayman when Evangelist David Campbell conducted the Message of Hope Gospel Seminar in the Village Square Plaza. The meetings were held from May 23 to June 15, 2014 and were the first of its kind for the island. On Sunday, June 1, the first baptism performed by an Adventist evangelist in Little Cayman took place. At the conclusion of the gospel seminar, a total of 3 precious souls were baptized.

Presently, the three baptized members from Little Cayman along with 5 members from the nearby Creek SDA Church in Cayman Brac comprise a fledgling group of Adventist believers in Little Cayman. They are joined each week by 15-20 frequent visitors for worship.

According to
http://www.caymanislands.ky, the population of Little Cayman is just under 170 persons. Pastor Vaughn Henry, the district pastor for Cayman Brac and Little Cayman, explained that because many of the persons work in the hospitality industry, the meetings began at 9:00 p.m. each day to accommodate the persons who left work at 8:45 p.m. Pastor Henry praised God that each night there was an average of 13-15 visitors.
