Top Adventist Leaders Build
I’m writing about Libna Stevens’ article “Top Adventist Leaders Build a Church” (March 2015). I like teamwork, especially from church leaders! It shows a Nehemiah spirit.

I’ve read nearly the entire February 2015 Adventist World, which rarely happens for me with other issues. I give it an “I” rating for inspiring. Thank you for the wonderful stories of how God is working in miraculous ways around the world. It makes me look forward to what He will do in my corner of the world.

Happenings in Iraq
I’m writing in regard to the news article “ ‘Many Wonderful Things’ Happening in Iraq” (February 2015). Praise God, this message shall be preached in all the world as a witness, then shall the end come! The devil is like a roaring lion, seeking to devour the people of the Middle East. But God is in control and the three angels’ messages cannot be stopped by the forces of evil.
I will continue to pray for my brothers and sisters in Iraq: that God will strengthen, protect, and provide for them. May God bless and provide for the Kurds.
I read Bill Knott’s editorial “The Way of the Cross” (January 2014). Says Knott: “This crucial (cross-bearing) teaching of Jesus cannot be heard often enough among us as we near the decisive conflicts of earth’s final days. Unless we regularly repeat these words to each other—study them, pray them, build this movement’s processes upon them—we will inevitably mimic the painful power structures of this world that already wound and oppress too many.”
Many thanks for this article!

99 Years Ago
When I saw W. A. Spicer’s picture in the December 2014 Idea Exchange (see “99 Years Ago”), poignant memories of his kindness and Christian love for a teenage girl came rushing back. I was the Sabbath school superintendent of Takoma Academy and lived across the street from him. Spicer was so gracious and helpful in providing my program with mission stories. He walked everywhere he went—and he was then in his mid-70s. Spicer was the grandpa I never had growing up. He truly was a man of God, one of His saints!

One Team, One Mission
Thank you for publishing Manuel A. Gómez’s article “One Team, One Mission” (November 2014). It is a great article! As a football follower I was interested in the article. After reading it, I’ve gained understanding in regard to the topic of unity. The article contains a wonderful analogy; and it helps us appreciate our mission on this earth, playing for God’s “team.”

This year’s General Conference session will be held in San Antonio, Texas, United States, July 2-11. Of the first 34 General Conference sessions, 27 were held in Battle Creek, Michigan, United States. The session has been held outside the United States only three times: Austria (1975), the Netherlands (1995), and Canada (2000).
Adventists from around the world can attend the meetings in San Antonio, but only official delegates can comment and vote in the business sessions.
