FLORIDA
Beachville - The men of the Beachville Advent Christian Church served breakfast to the women of the church on Mother's Day, May 12, 2013. We had a good spread of food; eggs, bacon, biscuits and gravy, grits, hash brown casserole, peaches and cream french toast casserole, crepes with various toppings, fruit and coffee.  The only complaint we had from the breakfast was that people were too full, and they were afraid they'd fall asleep during the sermon! Pastor Bruce reports he didn't notice anyone dozing, though.

Also on May 19, the men conceded to the women for the Penny Crusade competition for the year.

NIGERIA
Books sent to Nigeria

Last week the ACGC Dept. of World Outreach was able to ship to our Nigerian AC Conference15 copies of three different books, written by two of our Advent Christian theologians - Dr. David A. Dean and Dr. Sam Warren. The donor of the books, Sunshine Advent Christian Home and World Outreach (Sunshine ACC, Deer Isle, Maine), provided the gift in memory of Mildred Heanssler, long-time supporter of their mission group. This gift was to answer the Nigerian Conference’s need for books for the new library of their theological college. A big “thank you” to our Advent Christian brothers and sisters in Deer Isle! (Pictured left to right: World Outreach Director Jeff Walsh, Dr. Sam Warren with his book and World Outreach Assistant Trena Efird.)

PHILIPPINES
Agape House Ministries of Pujada, Inc. – Mati

On March 23, 2013, we had the soul refreshment activity among CANDORTCI (Christian Academy in Davao Oriental Technical College) students. This highlights the activity hour (a weekly meeting for an hour among groups of 10 students) for the entire semester/year. This is usually an overnight event where the students reviewed the things they learned during their activity hour and were challenged in their personal relationship with Jesus Christ and for water baptism. Praise God, there were eight students who committed for water baptism that day.
