Pastor Jerry and Mrs. Janet Page Ministerial and Associate Ministerial director of the General Conference continued their journey within the Atlantic Caribbean Union territory to strengthen the ministries of deacons, deaconesses, elders, Pastor’s and members in general.

On February 5-6 they held seminars and worship sessions with the leaders and members in the Turks and Caicos Islands Mission of Seventh-day Adventists. Their singular goal was to help those in positions of leadership in the local church to spend quality time in prayer with God.

On Monday they met with the Mission administration, pastors, Bible workers and office staff at the Mission office. Pastor Page presented on the area of revival and reformation in the life of believers and how to handle conflicts in the church. He also encouraged pastors to equip the members so that they will be able to do ministry for Jesus. Mrs. Page then shared inspiring stories of the results that prayer has had in the ministries of local churches around the world evangelistically.

Mrs. Michelle Arthur, prayer coordinator of the Turk and Caicos Islands Mission commenting on the experience said, “I was moved by the call to revival and reformation at this time in our mission. It was truly an ‘Upper Room Experience’. The presentations allowed me to think deep as to what God expects of me in these closing hours of earth’s history.”

She continued by saying, “They emphasized that each member, beginning with leaders must be conscious and spend time learning from God through His word and leading prayerful lives. We believe that we are fast approaching the time of the final crisis! It is time to intensify our focus on the Lord’s call for deeper consecration and heart-searching, wrestling prayer.”

“The impact and timely ministry of Pastor Jerry & Sis Janet to our territory has been an answer to prayer. In that, in their presentations the prioritizing of our relationship with Jesus through daily communion with Him in prayer equips leaders and departments to better fulfill the responsibilities and duties of church office. We commend and thank Dr. Leonard Johnson and the Ministerial Department of our Atlantic Caribbean Union for this initiative” so said Pastor Michael A. Smith, president of TCIM.

Pastor and Mrs. Page have been transformed personally through prayer and their ministry and the lives and ministries of others around them have experienced growth because they have submitted themselves to the will of God.
