MONTEGO BAY, St James
The oldest living baptised member of the Seventh-day Adventist Church in Jamaica, 103-year-old Adassa Henry Johnson, was the recipient of a special award for her faithful and dedicated service last Saturday, during the 125th Anniversary Celebration of Adventism in Jamaica at the Seventh-day Adventist Conference Centre in Montego Bay.
Johnson, who was unable to attend the ceremony, was baptised at age 10 and served in youth ministry and community outreach while she was active during her 93-year church membership.
In a video interview, she expressed joy about her achievement and her love for the church.
“I feel happy, I can say glory! From I was a small girl coming up I just love my church. The Lord provided every way for us, I was glad that many more could live and serve the Lord in Adventism,” she said.
