Without a weekly report to the local church of missionary
activities both local and around the world, many of our new
members and the younger generation do not catch the vision
of a worldwide movement and a God who is at work all around us in the lives of the members.
Some years ago, after I had lectured to Adventist university students and young professionals, a pastor approached me and asked, "Could you please talk to my wife and convince her that dinosaurs really did exist?" This request was not a joke.
