En la Conferencia de Nueva Jersey (NJC), nos movilizamos al escuchar el eco del llamado dado por Dios al profeta Isaías. “Enseguida oí la voz de Dios que decía: «¿A quién voy a enviar? ¿Quién será mi mensajero?» Yo respondí: «Envíame a mí, yo seré tu mensajero»”. (Isaías 6:8, TLA).

Es un privilegio ser llamado por Dios para predicar su mensaje de salvación en estos días solemnes antes de la segunda venida de Jesús. Por eso nos hemos unido a la iniciativa de misión de la Asociación General titulada: “I Will Go”, “Yo iré”.

Story by Valerie Morikone

Themed “Lift up the Trumpet,” Mountain View Conference’s (MVC) in-person camp meeting will be held June 11–19.

“Even though I walk through the darkest valley, I will fear no evil, for You are with me; Your rod and your staff, they comfort me” (Ps. 23:4, NIV).

What does this verse mean? The first part says, “Even though I walk through the darkest valley, I will fear no evil.” I think this means that even though we go through scary things, we have nothing to fear. I wonder why that is? The second part, “for you are with me,” gives it all away.
