Dear Brethren and Friends around the world,


We thank God for the privilege of still enjoying religious freedom and wide communication so that we can pray for and comfort each other in such difficult times. In recent days, we have witnessed major natural disasters caused by hurricanes and floods in Central and North America, and by earthquakes in Mexico and Japan.

Learn which herbal remedies are the most beneficial and effective in fighting the common cold.

The common cold is caused by one of many thousands of viral strains circulating each year. We introduce these viral particles to our bodies when we touch our mouth, nose, or eyes after touching contaminated surfaces. Common symptoms of a cold (or upper respiratory infection) are a runny nose, stuffy nose, sore throat, achy muscles, coughing, and mild fever. Symptoms appear from the interplay of viral replication and the body’s inflammatory response. Some symptoms may appear after 10-12 hours of inoculation and may persist for 7-10 days.

Photos from Sabbath September 9, 2017, with our brethren in Nigeria.

The Seventh Day Adventist Reform Movement arrived in the Imo State in Nigeria in 2016. Previously, the church had no members in that state, but through the health message, individuals soon became acquainted with the Reform Movement. After the first baptism in February of 2016, Imo State now has many Sabbath School members and other interested candidates.


The photos below are of our group in Imo State on September 9, 2017. Always remember us in your prayers because in Nigeria the "harvest is plentiful, but the labourers are few".
