As Denver Outreach Winds Down, Baptisms to Continue in Local Churches »
With an increase of 300 individuals, attendees at the Revelation Speaks Peace seminar during the January 27 Sabbath service at the Ellie Caulkins Opera House rose to 1,672. Forty percent of these come from other denominations or from people attending no church at all, while 60 percent are Seventh-day Adventists.
The number requesting baptism are expected to rise beyond the almost 70 individuals already interested as the Discover Bible School enrollees complete their studies and as churches provide continuing Bible study, Bible marking, the Shadow Empire series, health seminars and cooking classes.
Discover Bible School has 200 enrolled and the Voice of Prophecy has given away more than 200 Bibles to those who have attended at least nine of the meetings during the past month.
The addictions class, held immediately after the RSP meetings, has seen as many as 75 people wanting to conquer various kinds of addictions. Class members celebrated with Nancy this week when she said she has been smoke-free for 46 days. Mary, who attended a similar series in 2004, gave up smoking and marijuana usage simultaneously and “I haven’t touched them since, she beams."
“I am going to miss you people after you’re gone,” said Sam, an usher working for the Ellie Caulkins facility. He “enjoyed the lectures” and likes “the style of sharing.” Pastors prayed with him during the meetings, which he described as “very helpful.”
“I’ve heard things I’ve never heard before,” said Mary, a visitor from a non-denominational church.
Revelation Speaks Peace ends this weekend after the 7 p.m. Friday night meeting, and the 11 a.m. and 7 p.m. Saturday meetings. However, RSP speaker Shawn Boonstra will meet three consecutive nights, beginning Sunday, February 4, at Denver South Hispanic Church; Tuesday, February 5, at Chapel Haven Church; and Wednesday, February 6, at Denver South Church.
Denver-metro pastors meet regularly with the Voice Of Prophecy staff to make sure not one interest is forgotten. “These are precious people,” expressed RMC ministerial director Mickey Mallory.
