ADRA built additional shelters and waiting areas for external COVID-19 testing centers, provided germicidal lamps to testing sites, supported homes for the elderly and people with special needs, and distributed food, hygiene and personal protection products, vitamins, and cash vouchers to vulnerable communities.

In the Lake Region Conference in the United States, elementary students led out a 10-day virtual evangelism series. Despite physical limitations due to the pandemic, 60 students from Shiloh, Peterson-Warren, Capitol City, and South Suburban academies excitedly participated in the “Countdown to Eternity” livestream series last November 15-24. According to Peterson-Warren Academy Principal Lynette Jefferson, the program was a two-fold blessing: sharing the gospel with others while helping the students grow spiritually. To watch this prophecy seminar, please visit LRC Facebook page and LRC YouTube site.

In New Zealand, a new television series about how the gospel of Jesus Christ reached the Maori people will be screened this coming holiday season. About 50 Seventh-day Adventist volunteers have helped create Te Harinui (tidings of great joy), a TV special about the story of a friendship between a Northland chief named Ruatara and Reverend Samuel Marsden from Port Jackson, Australia. Their bond paved the way for the alignment of virtually all Maori people with Christianity.
