On Monday, May 24, president of the Seventh-day Adventist World Church, Ted N.C. Wilson and several selected delegates from the General Conference of Seventh-day Adventists met with the Minister of Religious Affairs and Endowments for the Republic of Sudan, Naserldeen Mofarih. Mofarih was joined by Amira Agarib, deputy chief of Mission at the Embassy for the Republic of Sudan, and Putrus Komi, advisor for Christian Affairs to the Minister of Religious Affairs and Endowments.

In Amazonas, Brazil, dozens of people were involved in recording the first Christian production shot. “I No Longer Live” takes place amid the COVID-19 pandemic and portrays the life of 19-year-old student Esthefany da Silva Maiah, her daily life, and her participation in the Pathfinder Club. After Esthefany discovered that she had lupus, her life was marked by many changes and the desire to make a difference in the lives of the people she lived with. Living with the complications of the disease, Esthefany started writing her reflections and projects in a journal that her father gave her. From that diary, the movie was born.

Seventh-day Adventists across ten islands in the North Caribbean region recently joined forces to provide urgent assistance to the hundreds of people displaced by the eruptions of the La Soufriere volcano in St. Vincent and the Grenadine.

As a result, more than 20000 people were displaced and unable to return to their homes on April 9, 2021.
