The Bethany Seventh-day Adventist Church recently led a successful evangelism series, attracting several non-Adventist Filipinos interested in hearing the gospel.
Led by evangelist Jason Arranguez, the campaign was sponsored by the Kings Church and a few notable members and ran from January 29th to February 11th, 2023. The theme for the series was “Ang Panahon Malapit Na” (The Time Is Near), and it was the first time in the history of the Cayman Adventist church that sermons were presented primarily in Tagalog, the language of the Philippines.
The campaign was well attended by Filipino community members, with transistors available for translation for all English-speaking visitors and members. Two Filipinos were baptized during the campaign, and several others indicated an interest in taking the next step.
In addition to the spiritual benefits, attendees enjoyed good food and refreshments every night after the meetings, stimulating interactive relationships.
Wilton McDonald, Pastor of the Bethany Seventh-day Adventist Church, shared, “The campaign was a great blessing, and the Bethany Church thanks God and each member for their contributions and what was accomplished. The church also thanks the Cayman Islands Conference for their subsidy to the evangelist and their attendance at the program.”
The campaign was hosted at the Cayman Academy’s auditorium, and the Bethany Church registers profound appreciation to the principal and her administrators for their support.
Overall, the campaign served as a meaningful outreach to the Filipino community. The Bethany Church looks forward to continuing its evangelism efforts and reaching more people with the gospel.
