The Western Australia field youth camp was held at Wave Rock, Perth, Australia from the 14th to the 17th of April. The theme of this camp was “Life Choices” where we delved deeper into understanding the choices and decisions faced by many young people today and how best to navigate this path. This camp was unique in that rather than having formal studies we had discussions out in nature in the open countryside and on top of expansive rocks overlooking the vast plains.
Every year, the Temple Hills church hosts a Bible conference around the time of the blooming of the flowering ornamental cherry trees in the Washington, DC area (the capital of the United States.) This year it was held on the weekend of April 7-9 and the theme for this conference was “Press On Toward The Mark”, based on Philippians 3:14 (KJV) “I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.”
"Commit thy way unto the LORD; trust also in him; and he shall bring it to pass,"
On April 1, 2017, our church in Guayaquil, Ecuador rejoiced as they welcomed three members into our church family. Sister Leyta, Sister Victoria, and Brother Isaac were baptized by Pastor Joffree Salvador in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
May God bless and prosper each step our brethren take in their new life with Christ.

Dear SDARM family,
Accept our warm greetings in the name of our Lord Jesus with Revelation 21:4:
“And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.”
It is with heartfelt sadness that we inform you that our dear Brother Francisco Devai (Lucacin) went to his rest in the Lord on April 16, 2017, in Sacramento, California, USA, at the age of 89.
On March 25, 2017, the brethren from Bacolod City, Philippines went to Canlaon City (approximately 100 km away) to distribute food and hold a Bible study. The event was blessed with the presence of 80 individuals who came for the studies and to receive the food given.
Then, on April 8, 2017, another Bible study was held, this time inBacolod City. There, 70 individuals attended the Bible study. May God bless the individuals who attended and held both events.
May God's word touch the hearts of those who heard it and bring Him glory.
