Adventist President excited over increased candidates

Pastor Nos Terry excited

The President of the Seventh Day Adventist Mission, Pastor Nos Terry says he is excited because while there have been Adventist candidates who contested the national elections since 1980, the imminent National Polls this month is reported to include the largest number of Adventist candidates of approximately 13.

The President says if the figure is somewhere near and a number of them win their seats, he says the candidates are of good standing in the church and it is his prayer that their entering parliament would add to contributing meaningfully towards the development of the country.

“I am excited with the fact that we are seeing some good Adventists stand up and to contribute towards defending our rights as a church”, he says.

“It is my wish that all members of our church can mobilise to rally support for our church candidates who if they win, can represent us and speak for us in parliament”.

Pastor Nos Terry speaks up after representatives of the General Conference in New York assured the Mission last year, that the church cannot stop Adventists from becoming members of parliament as long as they do not capitalise on church assets to pursue their political visions.
