Teamwork of pastors, lay members, and guest speakers leads to amazing results.

The Seventh-day Adventist Church welcomed thousands of new members during a massive baptismal celebration held in Port-au-Prince, Haiti, on April 7, 2018. More than 15,000 were in attendance to worship, witness and celebrate the culmination of intense evangelistic efforts held throughout the capital city and the rest of the country.

Some 2,050 new believers were baptized at the stadium, and thousands more were baptized in four other main sites across the Haitian Union. The event was shown live on the Internet and a national television station.

The event represented Inter-America’s annual baptismal celebration coined as “Lord Transform Me,” where pastors and members across the Inter-American Division (IAD) territory are totally involved in the mission of the church as they live a transformed life in Jesus, explain IAD leaders.

Balvin Braham, assistant to the IAD president for evangelism and main organizer of the event, praised the work of the 230 preachers and hundreds of church members in Haiti.
