Dozens of students in the North Mexican Union recently asked to be baptized after a special week organized by the Seventh-day Adventist schools across the territory. After a week of prayer and power under the theme “I Will Go — Extraordinary Mission Adventures,” 74 students were baptized as other 132 are getting ready to follow their example. Other 50 students and their parents are studying the Bible to learn more about God’s plan for their lives, regional church leaders said.
The virtual event this year took place April 19-23 and coincided with other evangelistic initiatives across the region, leaders said. The special week across the schools belonging to the Adventist Educational System in North Mexico (SEA UMN) drew more than 5,800 students and their close relatives for a week of worship, studying, and testimonies.
According to Lozano, it is essential to clearly share with new generations the Adventist identity and mission, so children can grow with a sincere desire of giving their abilities to God’s service. “Signs of the times show that Jesus is coming soon,” Lozano said, “and God is calling the new generations to join us in this effort to finish the task of sharing the gospel with the whole world,” he added.
For SEA MN academic vice-president Professor Enrique Dzul, it’s all about offering students top-notch spiritual learning experiences. “Our educational model seeks to offer our students the opportunity of surrendering their hearts to Jesus, and also to prepare them to become witnesses and disciples,” Dzul emphasized.
