One Hundred and Fifty persons gave their hearts to the Lord by way of baptism in the recently concluded “Messages of Hope” Gospel Series held at the Negril Playfield in Westmoreland from February 17 and March 23, 2019. The campaign which lasted approximately five weeks, was not without its fair share of challenges. Notwithstanding victories were won and hundreds either recommitted o committed their walk with Jesus.
“The weather was a major challenge” said Pastor Devon Heath, Evangelist for the recently concluded campaign. “There was rain and mud almost everywhere, but the work had to go on! What was encouraging to me was that in spite of the poor weather conditions and other challenges faced, the brethren showed up night after night for a Word from the Lord. The faithfulness and the commitment of the brethren in Negril must be commended” said the Pastor.
The “capital of casual” as the town of Negril is often referred as, is one of Jamaica’s major tourism hubs. Its high levels of secularism often times present challenges for evangelism. However, under the leadership of the Holy Spirit, the spot became fertile for transformation of hundreds of lives.
One of such persons who experienced transformation is Damion Distin, who braved the poor weather conditions to attend the nightly campaign. Although not a member of the Seventh-day Adventist Church, he has testified of the increased spiritual growth that he has received.
“I couldn’t afford to miss one night of the campaign” said the young man. “I grew up in another faith, but in recent times I have been exposed to the teachings of the Seventh-day Adventist Church. It is tough on me because I don’t have the support of my family. But since I have been coming to the crusade in Negril, I have learned so much about the bible and the Sabbath. This crusade has helped me to solidify my decision to re-comit my life to the Lord as a member of the Seventh-day Adventist Church” he ended.
Other members of the campaign’s administrative team included: Pastors Donald Smith and Anthony Whyte.comments powered by Disqus
