Celebrating God’s Leading
The Oklahoma Conference Officers, President James Shires, Secretary Apple Park, and Treasurer Roger Driver, officiated Sabbath, February 24, 2018 at the Garnett Seventh-day Adventist Spanish Group in Tulsa, Okla., as they officially became a Company. Pastor Ciro Castillo translated as Shires, preached a wonderful sermon to the church members and their invited guests.
The new church company provided a wonderful potluck filled with a wide variety of Spanish dishes. Park noted that the church membership had multiplied since he had visited them when they first worshiped in their present rented church facility. The group started with 14 members two and a half years ago and today they have 57 members in the books. They are an active group involved in community outreach, and led by their pastor, Max Elvira, and his wife, Evelyn.
