This Week's Promise to Share

"Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted. Blessed are the meek, for they will inherit the earth. Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled.

Blessed are the merciful, for they will be shown mercy. Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see God. Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God. Blessed are those who are persecuted because of righteousness, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

“Blessed are you when people insult you, persecute you and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of me. Rejoice and be glad, because great is your reward in heaven, for in the same way they persecuted the prophets who were before you.

Matthew 5:3-12, NIV

A Time for Worship & Cultural Sharing

Samoan Camp Meeting has been a time for praise, worship, and cultural sharing. Cultural traditions of storytelling, honor, respect, and community were part of the programming for the North American Division Samoan camp meeting in Auburn, Wash. Each "church tribe" had a fashion show and cultural presentation to lots of cheers, laughter, and community bonding.

During Sabbath afternoon, there was also cause for celebration of 44 baptisms! We pray for the continual working of God’s love in our growing young Adventists and churches.
