The “Jesus is the Answer” evangelistic meeting was the culmination of a summer-long outreach effort of the Forsyth New Life Mission in Forsyth, Ga., to reach the community with the three angels’ messages. Building upon the work that was done in the community during the past several years, the two-week tent meeting was yet another attempt to display the love of Jesus to the Forsyth community.
It all began with the health and wellness weekend in mid-June. Through the door-to-door outreach, the community was invited to learn of the natural means that could help them to experience optimum health. Then there was the canvassing by the students of Southern Adventist University and Antillean Adventist University. This was followed by Vacation Bible School at an apartment complex in the community. The “Jesus is the Answer” evangelistic meeting was promoted throughout all these activities in addition to direct mailings, a billboard, and personal efforts by the members of the Forsyth New Life Mission.
The small group of dedicated believers worked tirelessly to ensure that the Jesus is the Answer meeting was a success. And, indeed, it was. For the first week, Aubrey Duncan, lay pastor of the Forsyth New Life Mission, shared with the guests truly who Jesus is, why they can trust Him, and that He is the Only Answer to all their needs and challenges. For the second week the Sabbath, the state of the dead and the prophetic insights of Daniel and Revelation were presented. On hearing these truths, one visitor remarked, “I have been a Christian for a long time, but I have never heard teachings like these.”
Each night, the guests were blessed with special music and health lectures. They were not only edified by the messages and enjoyed the music, but also savored the fellowship lunches on the two Sabbaths of the meetings. On the final day all were blessed with the message of the Blessed Hope, the soon coming of the Lord and Savior. In the end, three guests made commitments for further study and baptism.
The members of the Forsyth New Life Mission continue to impact their community with their work of lifting Jesus as the Only Answer.
