Members and Guests Celebrate Anticipated Milestone
August 15, 2019

DURANT, OKLA. – On Saturday, June 29, 2019, the official organizing of the Durant Spanish Seventh-day Adventist Church took place in Durant, Okla. More than 17 years after God's work in this city began and through the difficulties both legal and economic, the Spanish Seventh-day Adventist congregation of Durant has been officially organized as a church.

The officers of the Oklahoma Conference, together with the church pastor, Moises Kindelan, were pleased to officiate this ceremony of dedication during divine worship service. More than 70 people shared with us the great joy and wonderful blessing of this unforgettable moment

The divine worship message was presented by Oklahoma Conference President James Shires who reminded us what God's purpose is for our families and as a church; we undoubtedly recognize that God has directed and helped us so far. Shires had a few words in which he emphasized the importance of sacred scripture in changing lives. It ended with words of recognition to the group's initiators and to all the families who, with their efforts and dedication, made it possible for that group to be officially appointed as a church.

As members of the church, we want to highlight the text found in 1 Kings 9:3: "I have heard the prayer and plea you have made before me; I have consecrated this temple, which you have built, by putting my Name there forever. My eyes and my heart will always be there."
