In keeping with its mission to proclaim the gospel to the Bahamas, the Cayman Islands, and the Turks and Caicos Islands, the Adventist church in the Atlantic Caribbean region has mobilized to share the love of Christ throughout the cities in its Atlantic Caribbean Union (ATCU) territory during the first quarter of 2015.

Presently, the Adventist church in the Turks and Caicos Islands is engaged in a citywide evangelistic campaign in Providenciales. The Countdown to the End Campaign, with guest evangelist Pastor Shian O’Connor, president of the Cayman Islands Conference, began on Sunday evening, February 1 under the big tent next to the Do It Home Center on Leeward Highway.

Elder Hopeton Bansie, executive secretary of the Turks and Caicos Islands Mission, reported that approximately 900 persons attend the meetings each night. He also shared that the messages from the evangelist, which are in English, are simultaneously being translated into Creole and Spanish so that the major language groups on the islands are able to receive the presentations.

Pastor O’Connor, at the conclusion of the evangelistic meetings in the Turks and Caicos Islands Mission, will have just weeks before his home conference launches its own citywide campaign. The Footprints of Jesus Evangelistic Series with guest evangelist Pastor Glen Samuels, president of the West Jamaica Conference, will begin on March 29 under the big tent in George Town, Grand Cayman.

Ahead of this launch, during February, Pastor Samuel Telemaque, associate Sabbath School and personal ministries director for the Inter-American Division will be in Grand Cayman to conduct training workshops to further equip the membership for service. His presentations will focus on community services, lay preaching, Bible instructors, global mission pioneers, and urban ministries workers.
