Nearer Than When We First Believed

Dr. R. Clifford Jones, President.
Lake Region Conference.

June 22, 2015

Dear Friends:

Warmest Christian and summer greetings.   

Please accept my thanks for your support of the services and programs associated with the 70th Anniversary Commemoration/Celebration of the Lake Region Conference.   The one-day Convocation held at Camp Wagner on June 21, 2015, was the capstone event of the year-long celebration, and the Ordination Service brought
the day to a fitting climax.   Whether you were present in person at Camp Wagner on Sabbath, June 21, or accessed the service via our “LIVE Video Streaming,” we hope that you were richly blessed.

As the first Regional Conference to be organized, the Lake Region Conference paved the way for the other Regional Conferences.   As Lake Region moves beyond the 70 year mark, we wish to continue to pave the way in mission and ministry.   The vision of Lake Region, moving forward, is to be a dynamic and united conference of healthy churches that are passionate about sharing the good news of a soon coming Savior.   More than ever, we want to daily encounter Christ, engender change, and empower congregations and communities so that we may meet our Lord and King in peace.

With our 70th Anniversary Convocation behind us, we must now turn our attention to the General Conference Session, which will take place from July 2-12 in San Antonio, Texas.   Whether you attend the Session or not, please pray that God’s presence and power will be experienced as Seventh-day Adventists from around the world meet for fellowship and to debate and vote on critical issues.   Please pray that the end of the Session finds the church united and strong, and poised to do greater exploits for God.

May God continue to richly bless and prosper you and yours.

R. Clifford Jones
