He was experienced in many areas of the Lord's work.
This year marks the centennial of the death of Ellen G. White, God’s messenger. During this year, we should take the opportunity to reflect on the blessing that her life and ministry represent for the remnant people. The numbers relative to her work are impressive:
During her ministry, Sister White produced over 100,000 pages of manuscripts, which include over 5,000 articles and the publication of 26 books.
The conference was held in the midst of a beech forest near the springs of the Tiber River—the river that permitted the development of Rome. The main speaker was the 1st Vice President of the GC, Brother Peter Lausevic. Brother Lausevic was in Italy teaching Evangelism at the Italian Field’s Scuola Biblica Missionaria Il Faro (The Lighthouse Bible Missionary School) and thus was able to be present for the conference.
