The Graduation of the Gospel Medical Missionary Movement Training Class of 2017 The Seventh-day Adventist Gospel Medical Missionary Movement of the Tennessee Valley (GMMMTV) has been active since 2005. It began in 2003 when Wildwood Health Evangelism School graduate Jim Ayodo, accompanied by Wildwood MD’s. Ervin Davis and Scott Grivas, started training classes at the New Life SDA Church in Huntsville when Harold Goodloe was the pastor. Graduates of that class coalesced to form the nucleus of what is now the SDA Gospel Medical Missionary Movement of Greater Huntsville.

The group’s main goal is to advance the cause of gospel medical missionary work in cooperation with duly ordained gospel ministers, in accordance with the prophetic writings of Ellen White (see, for example, Counsels on Health, pp. 557,558). In this spirit of cooperation, the GMMMTV has, in cooperation with Oakwood, Southern, and Andrews Universities, co-sponsored medical missionary conventions at each of these schools.

The Weekend of November 4-6, 2016 was like none other; the South-Central Conference Family Life Department had its’ first “We Value Family” weekend in the Natchez/Fayette Mississippi Church District. Pastor Marcus McIntyre and First Lady, Mishiki McIntyre welcomed us with open arms. During the weekend, we conducted workshops and one-on-one counseling sessions for the members and community. The Sabbath service was outstanding with great music, food and fellowship. Sunday morning started out bright and early with the whole church engulfed Fayette, Mississippi as we launched the “We Value Family, fall festival.” It was so moving to observe everyone from the youngest to the oldest collaborating to make the festival a success. And a success it was, we passed out Steps to Christ and invites to the evangelistic meeting as cars and pedestrians passed, Pastor spoke in the town square about family and the love of Jesus, some city officials from the police and fire departments came and shared in games, hot dogs, and community camaraderie. One of the city sorority members came and we prayed for the whole city. God blessed “We Value Family” above and beyond all that we could ask or think. -D. Renee' Mobley, Ph.D., South Central director of family life ministries
