Sabbath, June 16th, 2018

When one turns away from human imperfections to behold Jesus, a divine transformation takes place in the character. The Spirit of Christ working upon the heart conforms it to His image. Then let it be your effort to lift up Jesus. Let the mind’s eye be directed to “the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world.” John 1:29. And as you engage in this work, remember that “he which converteth the sinner from the error of his way, shall save a soul from death, and shall hide a multitude of sins.” James 5:20.. – Christ’s Object Lessons p. 250, 251

Young People’s Meeting: Young People’s Meeting will take place on Sabbath June, 30 afternoon at 3:00 pm. Please make plans to attend this important youth event in our church.

Sr. Vera Vitus: Sr. Vera Vitus, the mother of Sr. Sonia Oprisan died this week at the age of 77. Sr. Vitus was one of the most supportive members of our church in South Africa. Through many years she provided valuable services to the church community and to many GC officers who developed the gospel work in Africa and in South Africa in particular. Sr. Vitus is survived by three daughters, Linda, Sonia and Adele and several grandchildren.

Bro. Tihomir Poznic: Bro. Tihomir Poznic, the brother of our late Bro. George Poznic, and his wife, Anka, died in a car accident, yesterday morning. The accident took place near Nasice, Croatia, not far from Bro. Tihomir’s birthplace, Gazije. Bro. Tihomir Poznic and Sr. Anka accepted the saving truth in their youth and had been faithful and very supportive members of our church all their lives. Bro. Tihomir was 86 and Sr. Anka 84. They are survived by the son, Branko, and daughter, Branka, and four grandchildren. Both of them will be greatly missed by their close relatives and by the church family.

Condolences: The Toronto Church expresses sincere condolences to the grieving families with the desire that the Lord may provide to them His peace and comfort. With the blessed hope we look forward to not so distant future when we will meet our loved ones again: “And I heard a voice from heaven saying unto me, Write, Blessed are the dead which die in the Lord from henceforth: Yea, saith the Spirit, that they may rest from their labours; and their works do follow them.” Revelation 14:13
