A friend and I recently spent more than a year praying for an outcome that initially seemed so logical I hardly thought it worth asking God to make it happen.
From All the World
By Bill Knott
Every world-class team draws talent from around the globe. Millions of readers of Adventist World should expect nothing less.
In the past five months this editorial team has been deepened and strengthened by two international journalists whose skills and commitments to this faith are on display in nearly every edition.
Andrew McChesney, most recently the editor and executive publisher of the Moscow Times, Russia’s largest English daily newspaper, joined our team as news editor in May. Born in the United States, Andy spent 17 years in Russia, rising from a beat reporter to the top editor of the most influential newspaper for English readers in that nation of more than 140 million. His monthly column, Dateline Moscow, has endeared him to readers of the Adventist Review (sister journal of Adventist World) for more than seven years. His commitment to the global mission of the Seventh-day Adventist Church shines in every article.
In July we welcomed Dr. John M. Fowler as editor-at-large. Now “officially” retired after 52 years of continuous service to the Seventh-day Adventist Church, John served for 21 years as a literature evangelist and pastor, and later, chief editor of the Oriental Watchman Publishing House in Pune, India. He added roles as education director and associate secretary of the Southern Asia Division before coming to the church’s world headquarters in 1990 as an associate editor of Ministry magazine and associate director of the world church’s Education Department. Now living in Hosur, Tamil Nadu, India, he provides invaluable assistance in understanding Scripture and world events.
These two strong journalists, added to a team that already includes members from Germany, Guyana, Switzerland, Trinidad, Singapore, Canada, and the United States, make real our commitment to bring you a truly “World”-class magazine each month.
