gospel mission, upheld by the Seventh-day Adventist church admonishes us to “
go ye therefore and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the
Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit….” Matthew 29:18. KJV.
is with this mandate in mind that the Inter-American Division in collaboration
with SHARE HIM and Quiet Hour Ministries, two Seventh-day Adventist
Organizations, has established the International Evangelistic Ministry for
University Students (IEMUS) Club at Northern Caribbean University (NCU), and
other Universities across the Division.
mission of IEMUS is to “support the ministry of Evangelism in the
Inter-American Division, initiating the commission of Revelation 14:6-12, while
providing evangelistic training and experience for Seventh-day Adventist
students within its territory.”

IEMUS makes this possible.
last year’s trip to Honduras, Jennifer Bartley –Smith who was an evangelist,
shared that her translator was not an Adventist and even travelled with
weaponry wherever he escorted her. Later he was blessed by the word of God and
felt a calling to the Adventist beliefs and was baptized.

had, it stays with you forever. When you are able to see how the Lord blesses
people through the spoken and written word, it is life-changing. IEMUS has
