The Seventh-day Adventist Church Mount Salem, Women’s Ministries Department Prayer Breakfast, held on Sunday, March 3, 2019, at the Claude Plummer Cafeteria in the Seventh-day Adventist Conference Centre, Montego Bay.


As melodious music rose on the morning’s air, in the exquisitely purple, lavender and mauve-decorated hall, both women and men were rejuvenated by the spiritual experience.


Not Without a Woman” declared Mrs. Albertha Miller, wife of author and Pastor Deron Miller “All God needs, is a simple woman of faith to put in operation” argued the shepherdess.


Using the story of Deborah and Barak, found in the book of Judges 4, as a basis of her sermon she challenged the attendees to utilize their talents and gifts to advance God’s work. “He (Barak) was called to lead the army in battle,” she continued “he will go, but not without Deborah. Ladies, don’t be afraid to use up the gift that God has given you,” admonished Mrs. Miller.   


There was an impressive number of visiting ladies, seven (7) of whom were colleagues of Caseta Small a member of the Mount Salem Church. According to her “I work in the same establishment with them and I have a passion for them; wanting them to accept Jesus. When I look at how the way they go to parties every week it melts my heart because I know the coming of the Lord is near and I would not want to be caught up and they are not,” said Ms. Small.


The organizers of the program were more than delighted with the seamless flow of the service and the meaningful impact of the service.

“Kudos to Mrs. Charlene Samuels-Beckford, director of the department and her team for such a well-planned, well executed auspicious event,” said Sis. Cordelia Cunningham. “This (event) signifies that as women of God, we ought to care for the welfare of each other and prayer is our greatest avenue for hope and deliverance,” acknowledged the Mount Salem’s Communication Director.

Also in attendance were Carol Smythe-James, Women’s Ministries Director of West Jamaica Conference, First Elder Mercel Stanton (SDA Church, Mt. Salem) along with the Women Ministries directors or their representatives from the six other churches.
