Responding to the 1,000-year flood in South Carolina last month, Adventist Community Services Disaster Relief (ACS DR) set up warehouses and brought in flood buckets as soon as the water subsided enough to operate. A shipment of 630 flood buckets was received from the Allegheny East Conference, and S.C. Governor Nikki Haley asked the staff of the warehouse to come with her as she visited the affected counties and to hand out the buckets to the victims during her visit with the counties. The governor came by to personally thank each ACS DR volunteer for helping with her mobile distribution program and for operating the warehouse for the state, and to have her picture taken with the group. MORE

HOPE Heals! “I dream of a North American Division where every church throughout our entire territory is a House of Prayer,” exclaimed NAD President Dan Jackson, as he shared his eleven dreams or strategic goals for the NAD at the beginning of the NAD 2015 Year-end Meeting. Houses OHope Everywhere (HOPE) is an attainable and potentially powerful goal!  

"We believe God would be honored," says NAD Prayer Ministries Coordinator Ruthie Jacobsen. "We urge you to begin to ask God to show you what that would look like where you live." 

Find some recommended resources listed at the Hope Heals website. In addition, "As you sense God leading you in transforming your church into a House of Prayer tell us your story," says Ruthie, "or send us a video and we’ll include it so it can bless others."

 The Sabbath is a day of delightful communion with God and one another. It is a symbol of our redemption in Christ, a sign of our sanctification, a token of our allegiance, and a foretaste of our eternal future in God's kingdom. The Sabbath is God's perpetual sign of His eternal covenant between Him and His people. Joyful observance of this holy time from evening to evening, sunset to sunset, is a celebration of God's creative and redemptive acts. MORE
