A special message from Ted N.C. Wilson, president of the Seventh-day Adventist Church

My fellow Seventh-day Adventist Church members around the world,
As many of you have worshipped already today and many more will around the world, I am asking you to especially pray for those who have recently experienced devastation and death in the Caribbean from Hurricane Irma. I have prayed for them. Wherever you are pray for God’s church and the witness of His people. I am currently on an international trip and have felt strongly impressed to share this message with you today. The deadly storm of Hurricane Irma has ravaged the islands of St Martin, St Barts, St Thomas, Barbuda, Anguilla, Puerto Rico, Dominican Republic, Haiti, Cuba, and now strongly threatens Florida, Georgia, and South Carolina. Literally millions are fleeing the storm. Now, Hurricane Jose seems to be following in the wake of Hurricane Irma.
Please pray for our church members and the general population who have witnessed devastation in the areas just mentioned and the thousands who have gone through devastation in Houston, Texas, and the large surrounding region of southeast coastal Texas. I have prayed for them. Our hearts also go out to our members and the population in Mexico who have been devastated by a powerful earthquake affecting the states of Oaxaca, Chiapas, Tabasco, and even jolting Mexico City. In addition, Hurricane Katia is bearing down in the State of Veracruz. I have prayed for our people and the country of Mexico.
