Me gustan las reuniones, los entrenamientos y los seminarios, donde hermanos y hermanas se reúnen para entrenar y entrenarse en el nombre de Dios. Estas actividades sirven para recargar mis baterías espirituales, hacer nuevos amigos y, lo mejor de todo, ver viejos amigos que no había visto en años. En este tipo de eventos, nota la inmensa variedad de culturas y nacionalidades que conforman nuestra
Iglesia Adventista del Séptimo Día, la conferencia de Nueva Jersey es un bello ejemplo.

Mientras escribo, me viene a la mente 1 Pedro 1:1. Pedro refería a hombres y mujeres que tuvieron que distanciarse de su patria, muy similar a algunos de nosotros que nos mudamos a este país en busca de un mejor lugar para vivir.

I like meetings and seminars, where brothers and sisters gather to train and be trained in the name of God. These activities serve to recharge my spiritual batteries, make new friends and see old friends. It is at these types of events that I notice the immense variety of cultures and nationalities that comprise the Seventh-day Adventist Church, the New Jersey Conference being a beautiful example.

As I write, 1 Peter 1:1 comes to mind. In it, Peter refers to men and women who had to distance themselves from their homeland, very similar to some of us who moved to this country looking for a better place to live.

After prayerful consideration, the New Jersey Conference (NJC) Executive Committee unanimously elected Karen L. Senecal this week as their new treasurer. She will be the first female to hold this position and will join the conference team January 1, 2019.

“We welcome Karen Senecal to the family of the New Jersey Conference. [Her] experience and passion for the mission of the church will be a blessing to the NJC,” says Jorge Aguero, president.

At the beginning of the summer, families worldwide were captured by the rescue operation of a 12-member soccer team and coach from Thailand. When the team failed to come home after practice, the city and government launched a search and rescue operation. Days of agony and uncertainty worried their parents and the public.

What a relief when, 10 days later, rescuers found the boys, and eight days later, everyone was safe. It was an amazing process and joint effort to free them from the Tham Luang Nang Non cave.
