International Sabbath

We would like to invite you to attend a special worship service prepared for you by the International Students. Our guest speaker this year will be Elder Leslie Louis, President, Carolina Conference of SDA. For this special Sabbath celebration, please come dressed in your traditional attire. As many of you would remember, last year we made an appeal on behalf of our international students for a special offering for “international students emergency fund” and many of you gave extremely generously. We have been blessed to receive that offering and we have been able to assist many of our students that had urgent needs (with groceries, eyeglasses, doctor’s visits and so on). So, we are extremely grateful for last year's gift. We would like your generous gift once again on April 8 to continue the work that we are doing for our students. Please mark your tithe envelope as—“International student fund.” May God bless you abundantly and provide for you as you provide and care for our neediest. Thanking you on behalf of our grateful international students.
