Seventh Day Adventists Congress drawing to a close

A safe and healthy city leads to the prosperity of the nation, and this can be achieved with the help of the churches.

This message by NCD Governor Powes Parkop was directed  to Seventh-Day Adventists followers who have gathered in Port Moresby for the one-week ACS (Adventist Community Service) congress.

He addressed the congregation during the hand-over of a staff room to the Gordon Secondary School this afternoon.

As part of their community service project, the SDA Central Papuan Conference funded the renovation of the staff room over the past three weeks.

The facility was handed over to the school today, also winding down the congress which had started early this week.

The congress has attracted thousands of Adventists men and women all over the country.

Delegates from the SDA General Conference in the United States were also invited as guest presenters.

Governor Parkop thanked the church for the generous gesture, referring to the facility renovations, and in general the part the church plays in the communities.

“As a governor, my goal is to promote healthy living and safe city for women and girls and many of my programs have aimed at achieving this.

“And I thank the churches who have been promoting these good virtues, particularly, the Adventist church, with whom we have been closely involved with.

“I am happy to work with the Adventists, continue promote healthy living and let’s change this nation together,” he said.
