! 1 Thessalonians 5:12-13 (NIV)

12 Now we ask you, brothers and sisters, to acknowledge those who work hard among you, who care for you in the Lord and who admonish you.

13 Hold them in the highest regard in love because of their work. Live in peace with each other.

Following the directive of the Holy Scriptures, the Philipsburg Seventh-day Adventist Church on the 23rd October 2018 was delighted to honor the three pastors currently serving, for their dedication and sacrifice to the work of Christ here in Sint Maarten. They are:

  1. Senior Pastor Vashni Cuvalay
  2. Pastor Lester Jules
  3. Pastor Timothy Leito

Beautiful tokens of gratitude were received in the form of poetry, musical renditions, video messages from the various ministries of the church, and tangible gifts from members as well as the North Caribbean Conference Executives. It was a truly remarkable evening of love, good food and fellowship, as the under-shepherds of God’s people were shown appreciation for their humility, dynamism and passion to see souls saved for eternity.
