After six weeks of online spiritual messages hosted by the Seventh-day Adventist Church in Jamaica, a total of 4,213 persons joined the church through baptism during the Footprints of Hope Online Evangelistic Series.
The series, which featured keynote speaker and evangelist Glen O. Samuels, was possible thanks to coordinated efforts by evangelism teams on the ground throughout the English-speaking regions of the Inter-American Division, namely Jamaica, Atlantic Caribbean, The Caribbean, Dutch Caribbean and Belize.
“Breaking the evangelistic glass ceiling”
“The Holy Spirit has broken the evangelistic glass ceiling in many ways through intercessory prayer, the finest technical team and a global audience and baptism of souls,” said Pastor Samuel Telemaque, Sabbath School and Adventist Mission director for the church in Inter-America and main coordinator of the Footprints of Hope Series. The online series was the first among five online regional campaigns which is grouping Inter-America’s 24 unions, for collaborative, integrated evangelistic efforts this year as the IAD celebrates 100 years since it was established as an organized division territory.
From Jan. 15 to Feb. 25, 2022, thousands from across the Caribbean, Central America, North America, Asia, Europe and other parts of the world watched and listened via YouTube, Facebook and other social media platforms, Free-to-Air Television, cable, radio and Hope Beyond.net as Pastor Samuels spoke.
