Dear sisters and brothers of the Euro-Africa Region, 2011 has been a difficult year for several reasons: social turmoil, conflicts, economic and financial crisis, natural disasters etc. Our heart is oppressed by deep concerns about life, our families and our future. We are experiencing the signs of the times predicted by Jesus in the Gospel. Almost all families have been stricken by uncertainty, economical problems or disease. Europe is facing a great political and economical instability. One of the richest continents on earth is sharing the common problems of the entire planet.

Jesus is coming! Our sorrows are going to finish…our sadness too. After having prayed throughout the entire year 2011 for the 'Global Rain,' according to the General Conference mandate, we are experiencing a great awakening in our global church. SDA church members are rising up, awakened by the Holy Spirit. Many Adventists are more and more involved in the Revival and Reformation worldwide project. We are more and more aware that we have to wake up the world, hypnotized by Satan’s deceiving strategies. We have to join together, proclaiming God's saving grace and love.

The time has come to unite, following our supreme Leader, the Holy Spirit. We must share Jesus with our friends, with the world. Jesus has died for all of humanity, and He loves His sons and daughters.

The SDA members of our region have demonstrated great commitment, great enthusiasm, great faithfulness and great love, implementing wonderful projects and initiatives. I'm proud of this territory!

Let me, together with all of my colleagues of the Euro-Africa Region administration, thank you for your commitment and support. The Global Rain is beginning and Jesus is coming again! May God bless our global church and our European region!

Your in Christ,

Bruno Vertailler
Euro-Africa Region President
