People from across the Cayman Islands, Honduras, Jamaica, the United States, and other countries around the world tuned in to the “I Know a Man” Bible Exploration Series conducted by the Women’s Ministries Department of the Cayman Islands Conference of Seventh-day Adventists. The series was conducted from October 2-9, 2021, and was a way to encourage attendees to explore their Bibles and meet Jesus.
Throughout the week, the various speakers (primarily women) shared personal experiences and stories from the Bible, which showed who Jesus is, how persons met Him in the past and how we can meet Him today, in current times. In the opening sermon, Corry Chambers used the story found in Mark 4 of how Jesus calmed the storm and her personal experience of Hurricane Gilbert to remind viewers that despite their experiences, Jesus is present with us amid every storm that we face. She also encouraged the attendees by saying, “Storms are inevitable in the lives of people as they are tests of our faith; they can happen suddenly, and they teach us to know who Jesus is and to rely on Him. Storms are a setup for God’s goodness to show up, and show the world who He is.”
The Women’s Ministries Department is committed to encouraging, challenging, equipping, and nurturing women as they do their part in carrying the Gospel message to the world. With over 1,000 devices tuned in each night, the presenters from the Bible Exploration Series nurtured, facilitated, and supported both women and men, inviting them to live as disciples of Jesus Christ and share their encounters with Jesus with persons in their sphere of the world.
Before we conclude, I would like to leave you with a thought presented in the series. It is shocking how we can miss what Jesus Is doing for us when we are in the midst of difficult circumstances. Sometimes we tend to focus on the challenge and forget that we have Him, so in fact, we may witness a miracle of Jesus but miss its significance, believing it was through our abilities that the issue was resolved. Yes! It can be hard to see the importance of the season we are journeying through while going through it. However, be encouraged because Jesus is right there with you in your situations and working all for your good. I put it to you to open your minds and share with Him what you are currently facing and then allow Him to show you what He has in store for you.
