Six precious souls were baptised Sabbath, April 7 at the Knockpatrick Seventh-day Adventist Church in Manchester, Jamaica.

Knockpatrick, my home church, has been blessed in recent times with a revival by Pastor 'Hurricane' Bryan, Director of Stewardship and Spirit of Prophecy at Central Jamaica Conference; a wonderful Youth week of prayer conducted by several very dedicated youth; and just last week, Family Ministries Director of the Inter-American Division of Seventh-day Adventists, Pastor Jansen Trotman and Mrs. Trotman, presented a family life evangelistic series.

I returned to Knockpatrick today and we again had another notable guest, Pastor Enell Hall, Ministerial Secretary for West Indies Union, who preached on Isa. 43:2,3 under the topic "A New Name."

In his preamble Pastor Hall informed the congregation that the IAD baptised 47,000 new members for the evangelistic thrust Pentecost and More on March 24.

He said God created man and wanted us to be His special people, God says 'Fear not' and He will save you from the element of hostility, and whenever God calls He changes your name. There is a change of name, sometimes environment, sometimes occupation, but certainly a change of character. Of the more than 360 promises in the Bible, one is o give us a new name (Rev. 2:17,18).

Pastor Hall told the brethren, and the candidates in particular, how to live a sinless life: every morning spend 5 minutes to deliver your life to God. Say GOD I AM GIVING YOU AUTHORITY TO DIRECT MY LIFE TODAY. At the end of the day raise your hands and give God the glory.
