ASI Mid-America 2017 Rally - Omaha
March 3rd - 4th
The ASI Mid-America Rally was held at the Omaha Memorial SDA Church, Omaha, Nebraska on March 3rd and 4th, 2017. The theme of the event was “Before It’s Too Late” based on John 9:4 which states, “I must work the works of Him who sent Me while it is day; the night is coming when no one can work.” We were privileged to have as our guest speakers Shelley Quinn, Program Development Manager for 3ABN and her husband, J.D. Quinn, Pastoral Manager for 3ABN and elder at the Thompsonville SDA Church in Illinois. Shelley presented three messages on Friday night, Sabbath worship, and Sabbath afternoon. Preaching on Romans 12:1, she enlightened us on what “reasonable service” is. Our service to Christ in these end times is “reasonable” because of all He gave to us that we should present ourselves as a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God. She stressed that we need to pray that the Holy Spirit will guide and lead us in our lives as we work for Him. J.D. led out in a short Sabbath School discussion and also shared with us the work currently being done at 3ABN.
We were blessed with special music by Anabel Albuja of HeReturns ministries, by the Omaha Memorial Church Choir, and by Franklina Durham, a local member.
Several ministries presented Members in Action (MIA) spotlights. These ministries included HeReturns publishing/health/multi-media outreaches, KOTA – King of the Angels Ministry, and Adventist United from the Kansas City area. Barbara Taylor, ASIMA President shared with us her worldwide ministry of sharing New Beginnings all over the globe. We were also blessed with an ASI video on ministries of Outpost Centers International (OCI) and the one-day church/school projects.
The Lord truly blessed our rally in Omaha. We give Him all the glory and honor and praise for the messages that were presented.
