Seventh-day Adventist evangelistic meetings in Prague, Czech Republic, continue as guest speaker Ted N. C. Wilson delves into what the Bible reveals about the future of humanity. Meetings began on May 12 at the Společenské centrum Bethany (Bethany Social Center) and are scheduled to close on May 26.
Several people attending have already expressed their desire to be baptized at the end of the series, Wilson shared. “A number of attendees indicated they want to be baptized, and this was only the third night of the evangelistic series!” he wrote after the May 14 meeting. “More people will make decisions for baptism, by God’s grace. We praise God for His goodness. What a privilege to serve the Lord and see Him work!”
On May 18, Wilson posted an update after the meeting, during which he discussed the importance of the Ten Commandments as “the love foundation of God’s throne.” Wilson seemed pleased that a sizable percentage of the audience were visitors and was encouraged by their reaction to the Bible study. “We had a very positive response from them in accepting God’s law and His grace,” Wilson shared. “The Holy Spirit was really moving on hearts to accept all of God’s commandments.” A day later, he presented specifically on the Sabbath commandment.
Wilson’s wife, Nancy, has begun several of the evangelistic meetings with health-related information and tips. Nancy, a trained physical therapist, discussed revealing research findings on the importance of rest and physical activity, among other topics.
Overall, the Wilsons called for members around the world to pray for the evangelistic meetings in Prague, which are part of the Christ for Europe efforts. The unprecedented initiative is happening in 1,500 venues across Europe in 2023 for outreach and evangelism. “God is doing something special for His church in Europe,” Wilson wrote. “I believe there will be a revival and reformation in Europe to focus church members on evangelism, mission, and Christ’s soon coming!”
On May 16, the Wilsons visited the Elijah Adventist School, which includes an elementary and a growing secondary school. “It is a wonderful church school that points people to Jesus,” Ted Wilson shared after the visit. “I spoke, in separate meetings, to the faculty, to the very young students, to middle school students, and to secondary school students,” he wrote.
The Adventist Church also manages a kindergarten attached to the Bethany Social Center.
On the same day, the Wilsons also visited the headquarters of the Czecho-Slovakian Union Conference, which oversees the Adventist work in the Czech Republic and Slovakia. The Wilsons met with the union administration and the three conference presidents. They also toured the church sanctuary connected to the Union office.
“Please pray for Prague!” Wilson wrote in a post addressed to Adventist church members around the world. “And please pray for the Christ for Europe initiative!”
