Below is a transcript of a message addressed to the Seventh-day Adventist Church in Inter-America from President of the Inter-American Division, Elie Henry–IAD News Staff
June 10, 2022 | Miami, Florida, United States | By: Elie Henry, president of the Seventh-day Adventist Church in Inter-America
Hello Brothers and Sisters. On this occasion I greet you from St. Louis Missouri, here in the United States, where the 61st General Conference Session of the Seventh-day Adventist Church is being held.
During this week, nearly 3,000 delegates from across the globe have met to make important decisions, review the manuals and bylaws, and elect the leaders of the General Conference, as well as those of us presidents of the 13 Divisions, who will serve for the period 2022-2025.
I have been hearing from many of you that you are praying for this event, that the Holy Spirit will be in every activity, in every decision and with every attendee.
It certainly is a blessing to feel the pulse of the worldwide Adventist family. In spite of geographical, social and cultural differences, we remain united, as described by the Apostle Paul, in Philippians 2:1-2.
Therefore if there is any consolation in Christ, if any comfort of love, if any fellowship of the Spirit, if any affection and mercy, fulfill my joy by being like-minded, having the same love, being of one accord, of one mind.
I want to invite you to strengthen that unity, that hope that we have in Jesus and above all your personal relationship with the Lord. As we go through the activities of this last day of the General Conference here in St. Louis, let us continue to feel His presence, and may we do so until the Lord comes in glory and majesty.
