On Sabbath 16 of July, the President of the Cayman Islands Conference of Seventh-day Adventists (CIC), Pastor Reinaldo Dracket, was in East End, where he presented a plaque to commemorate the mother church of Adventism in the Cayman Islands for over a hundred years of existence. This acknowledgement was from the Inter-American Division as part of their celebration of 100 years of existence this year.
A special presentation on the history of how Adventism and the church came into existence in the Cayman Islands over 128 years ago was presented by Annie K. Price. It detailed the dreams of Captain Gilbert McLaughlin in bringing Adventism to the Cayman Islands and, in doing so, becoming the first Adventist in the Cayman Islands.
In attendance were the East End church family, family, and descendants of Captain McLaughlin to celebrate the occasion. In addition, the resident Pastor Carlon Nyack was there to receive the plaque on behalf of the Seventh-day Adventist Church in East End.
