The 21st General Conference Session of the Seventh Day Adventist Reform Movement will soon commence. We would like to share a few words here from the outgoing General Conference President, Br D Sureshkumar, in reminder for us all to please uphold the session in our prayers.
“Dear Brethren, Sisters and Friends,
“Greetings in the name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ!
The year 2011 is the year for the gathering of God's people in the capacity of His representatives to plan and to perform His work. I have the pleasure of extending my hearty invitation to have your presence at the 21st Session of the General Conference to witness the amazing way the Lord is blessing His people. Through these gatherings we let the world know that we are a people represented by the angel of Revelation 18 whose glory shall fill the whole earth.
“We will commence this convocation with the Spiritual Meetings to be held in Sibiu, Romania, from August 18–21, 2011. This will take place prior to the Delegation Session which is the "church in the Lord's business." We will use this time to thank the Lord together with our extended family of believers. The main theme for this conference, "He Is Coming," will provide the spiritual focus of the session. He is coming with all the holy angels with Him. While the whole world is plunged in darkness, there will be light in every dwelling of the saints. The angels will help us to make a thorough preparation to meet Jesus, and when He appears we may exclaim with joy, "Lo, this is our God; we have waited for him, and he will save us" (Isaiah 25:11).
“As we gather together and pray as a congregation during these Spiritual Meetings, the Holy Spirit will surely be with us and enable us to plan together in the Delegation Session. This will be a moment to rededicate ourselves to the Lord and to take the opportunity to renew our covenant with Him, and will also be a time of wonderful fellowship and spiritual refreshment.
“The venue for the Delegation Session is chosen to be in Porumbacu de Sus, County of Sibiu, Romania. This facility is solely owned by the church, and is situated in a beautiful natural setting surrounded by mountains. The dates for the Delegation Session are August 23–September 13, 2011.
“I invite you to join me through your prayers that these events may be a blessing to all of us.”
