The spirit of evangelism continues its march across the Atlantic Caribbean Union. Just recently, the Cayman Islands Conference and the North Bahamas Conference (NBC) concluded evangelistic series in their respective territories.
In Freeport, Grand Bahama, The Bahamas, home to NBC headquarters, Pastor Peter Kerr, executive secretary of the Atlantic Caribbean Union, preached at the Triumph of the Cross Evangelistic Series which was held under the big tent next to the Shiloh SDA Church. Sixteen precious souls were baptized and added to the church.

Also, for the past four weeks, the members of the Cayman Islands Conference were engaged in the Footprints of Hope Gospel Crusade. Pastor Glen Samuels, president of the West Jamaica Conference, was the guest evangelist. The crusade which was held at the Lions Center in George Town, Grand Cayman concluded on Sabbath, May 1 and saw over one hundred and fifty persons following their Lord and Saviour in baptism.

The Cayman Islands are a group of three islands: Grand Cayman, Cayman Brac, and Little Cayman, which are situated in the western Caribbean Sea. The Cayman Islands Conference of Seventh-day Adventists is one of four fields of the Atlantic Caribbean Union. While the majority of the membership resides and worship in Grand Cayman, there is also an established Seventh-day Adventist church in Cayman Brac.

However, history took place in Little Cayman when Evangelist David Campbell conducted the Message of Hope Gospel Seminar in the Village Square Plaza. The meetings were held from May 23 to June 15, 2014 and were the first of its kind for the island. On Sunday, June 1, the first baptism performed by an Adventist evangelist in Little Cayman took place. At the conclusion of the gospel seminar, a total of 3 precious souls were baptized.

Presently, the three baptized members from Little Cayman along with 5 members from the nearby Creek SDA Church in Cayman Brac comprise a fledgling group of Adventist believers in Little Cayman. They are joined each week by 15-20 frequent visitors for worship.

According to
http://www.caymanislands.ky, the population of Little Cayman is just under 170 persons. Pastor Vaughn Henry, the district pastor for Cayman Brac and Little Cayman, explained that because many of the persons work in the hospitality industry, the meetings began at 9:00 p.m. each day to accommodate the persons who left work at 8:45 p.m. Pastor Henry praised God that each night there was an average of 13-15 visitors.
