The Vancouver Filipino SDA Church Seniors called themselves the Diamond Group. There are eighteen members with the youngest at 65 and oldest at 90.
Bible study is part of their life. Sabbath afternoon is dedicated to the study of the Word of God. Various topics related to God’s love, health, unity and even child discipline are among the favourite topics of discussion. One reason they do this group study is to train every members for outreach. In 2 Timothy 2:15 , “study to show yourself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the Word of Truth.” We want to share the love of God to those around us. Distributing pamphlets, books and other reading materials is part of their ministry.
The Seniors are also known among the church members as the “Prayer Warriors”. Bible study and devotional are often followed by prayer meeting. If you have a prayer request, just called their leaders and your request will be included in their prayer. Daily at 6:00pm, members of the group in their respective homes will be praying simultaneously to bring to God every prayer request. And they do have many personal testimonies of answered prayers.
They spend their spare time visiting homes of friends and strangers to share the truth and pray. Outreach is the passion of every member.
If you have a prayer request, please call Sis. Mamerta Olit at Tel. # 604-874-7065 or e-mail your request to firstname.lastname@example.org.
