A Short Visit to Colombia, South America

Colombia with more than 40 million inhabitants has 280,000 Seventh-day Adventists. From March 27 to 31, 2008, Gerhard Pfandl presented seven power point lectures on current trends in SDA theology at Colombia Adventist University in Medellin. The university has about 1300 students many of whom earn their school fees at the bakery or the health food factory on campus. The lectures which included such topics as “The Trinity in Adventism,” Minneapolis 1888,” and “Creation and the Adventist Church” were attended by about 800 people, including 300 theology students. The attendees expressed their appreciation for the lectures as well as for the interaction during the question and answer periods which followed each lecture.
