June 2024 - Foreign Mission Project in the Pacific Region

First Sabbath Offering
Goal Amount: 
July 17, 2024


The work of spreading the gospel message in this world is a tremendous task, due to the many souls yet to hear the good news of salvation. The Lord declares that “this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come” (Matthew 24:14). God loves every single one of the 7.8 billion people in this world and wants them all to have a chance to turn to Him.


There are many religions in Pacific region including Taoism, Buddhism, Islam and Christianity; however, the vast majority identify as non-religious or atheist. There is truly a great work to do here.


“The whole world is opening to the gospel. Ethiopia is stretching out her hands unto God. From Japan and China and India, from the still-darkened lands of our own continent, from every quarter of this world of ours, comes the cry of sin-stricken hearts for a knowledge of the God of love. Millions upon millions have never so much as heard of God or of His love revealed in Christ. It is their right to receive this knowledge. They have an equal claim with us in the Saviour’s mercy. And it rests with us who have received the knowledge, with our children to whom we may impart it, to answer their cry.”—Education, pp. 262, 263.


Although the spreading of the message may not have some of the same freedoms in some areas as others, the truth does find a way to human hearts and there are many believers in the message of reformation in places you might not expect. This Sabbath we ask you to pray especially for this work, that God will enable it to go forward to prepare more souls for His kingdom.


For the truth to go forward, means are greatly needed to help facilitate a place of worship to forward the cause of truth in the northern part of this great field of labor. We ask you to give generously.


“For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater: So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it” (Isaiah 55:11).
