GLOW TESTIMONIES - GLOW ON GROUND BRINGS BAPTISM
Have you ever seen a GLOW tract on the ground and thought, "That's too bad." Think again!
Recently, a young man found a discarded GLOW tract on the ground and picked it up. The GLOW tract title was “Why I Go to Church on Saturday.” He then went home to ask his mom, “Why do we go to church on Sunday instead of Sabbath?” His mom “froze.” She was once an Adventist but had departed from the faith and was taking the kids to a Sunday church. The young man's interest interest continued to grow though. Now he attends an Adventist Academy and has become a baptized member.
You too, can be part of this... check out this video about GLOW.
CURRENT SUNSET TIMES
The Personal Ministries Department has Glow Tracts available for you to share with friends, neighbours, acquiantances, anyone you bump into in the grocery store or petrol station, and so on. See David to get some of these tracts to share with people you love, know, and don't know. New edition to the range is now available: "Why I go to Church on Saturday".

SABBATH SCHOOL AND MID-WEEK MEETING ATTENDENCE
It is not the same without you! Sabbath School is one of the gauges which can be used to determine the "life" of a church, as are mid week meetings. How is it looking for our church? Make a difference this Wednesday evening and Sabbath! And just as important, bring a friend!
A LOVE LETTER FROM JESUS
How are you? I just had to send you this letter to tell you how much I love you and care about you.
I saw you yesterday as you were walking with your friends. I waited all day, hoping you would walk and talk with me also. As evening drew near, I gave you a sunset to close your day and a cool breeze to rest you. Then I waited, but you never came. O yes, it hurt me, but I still love you because I am your friend.
I saw you fall asleep last night, and I longed to touch your brow so I spilled moonlight upon your pillow and your face ... Again I waited, wanting to rush down so we could talk. I have so many gifts for you.
You awakened late this morning and rushed off for the day. My tears were in the rain. Today you looked so sad, so alone. It makes my heart ache because I understand. My friends let me down and hurt me many times but I love you. I try to tell you in the quiet green grass. I whisper it in the leaves and trees and breathe it in the colours of the flowers. I whisper it to you in the mountain streams and give the birds love songs to sing. I clothe you with warm sunshine and perfume the air. My love for you is deeper than the oceans and bigger than the biggest want or need you could ever have.
We will spend eternity together in heaven. I know how hard it is on earth. I really know because I was there and I want to help you. My Father wants to help you, too. He's that way, you know. Just call me, ask me, talk to me. It is your decision ... I have chosen you and because of this I will wait ...
Because I love you.
Your Friend, JESUS
