A METHOD of evangelism that was new to me was presented to those attending an evangelistic council sponsored by the Applied Theology Department of the Seminary at Andrews University in March, 1967. Dr. M. G. Hardinge, of Loma Linda University School of Public Health, while speaking on health evangelism, quoted from the works of Ellen G. White. The words he read continued to ring in my mind until Dr. Herschel C. Lamp, medical secretary of the Middle East Di vision, and I united our efforts as a doctor-minister team in a series of meetings aimed at Moslems attending the Adventist Center in Tehran, Iran. . .
WHAT does total evangelism mean? Certainly it means more than just programming evangelism on high denominational levels. It is relatively easy for experts to map strategy, but the success of any evangelistic thrust depends upon committed individuals in every strata of church organization. . .
GREAT rejoicing spread through Jerusalem as Hezekiah ordered the service of God to be set in order. The house of the Lord had fallen into disrepair through the neglect and idolatry of God's own people. For too many years no offerings had been brought. The lamps were out. No incense burned. The doors were bolted shut. Trouble reigned all around. . .
A SATISFYING evangelistic program has just been concluded in Masbate, capital of Masbate Province, territory of the Central Visayan Mission. Masbate is notorious for its lawlessness. Banditry, land grabbing, thievery, cattle rustling, gambling, heavy drinking, and other accompanying vices are common everywhere. The situation is such that an American Baptist missionary remarked to me that the conditions in the area were just like those of the old American Wild West. Sin abounds in high and low places, outside and inside the churches. . .
AT THE close of the Australasian Division annual meetings it was my privilege, together with Brethren W. R. Beach and W. L. Pascoe from the General Conference, to attend the North New South Wales camp meeting. The campground is beautifully situated on the shores of a large lake. . .
OUR pastors have been using this program with excellent results. In one of our smaller areas four families have been coming back to church since the CONCERN kits were taken to them. This is a wonderful program and will surely bring results.". . .
THE spirit of revival, reformation, and sacrifice is taking hold of the Adventist Church. This spirit is reaching deep into the very heart of the South American Division. An entire continent is coming under the spiritual impact of latter-day preaching. This vast expansion of territory, divided into eight countries using two major languages, presents our six union organizations of thirty-one local fields with the greatest challenge of the church. . .
