The first Friday in March is designated as World Day of Prayer, and this year Glen Innes SDA church had the privilege of hosting it for the local district, which was co-ordinated by Jenni Lloyd-Ward. Members from several other churches in our town attended.
The featured country was Vanuatu, and theme was ‘Build on a Strong Foundation’. Psalm 127:1 “Except the Lord build the house, they labour in vain that build it”.
Each visiting church had a segment in the program, and our local pastor, Pr Brad Cooke, gave a timely message on building on the Rock, not the sand, which everyone appreciated.
During our World Day of Prayer we were blessed by two special items- a men’s singing group from Vanuatu, via video, and the second one, “Bind Us Together”, was sung by some local church members.
At the conclusion of the program, we had wonderful fellowship over morning tea, and the positive atmosphere was a blessing to us all.
