Work in progress. Return here for updates January 3.
With a passion for healthy living and desiring to have the knowledge how help others live healthily, Lanardo Rolle, a 29-year-old vibrant Adventist Youth from Exuma (photo on the left) decided to go to Hartland College, Virginia, in September 2014, to train as a health educator. His passion grew as he envisioned sharing what he learned with his home-town church, in Exuma, The Bahamas.
On one occasion, while visiting home, he made a presentation on different health issues and natural remedies. It was so well received it encouraged him to do more. When he returned to Hartland, the impression became stronger to share what he was learning and began making plans to organize a mission to Exuma to conduct two weeks of Health Evangelism at the Rolleville Seventh-day Adventist Church, Exuma, The Bahamas. He began gathering support and funds from his friends and teachers at Hartland College to do the project. Thus on July 25, 2017, a series called “Health Improvement Seminar” started at the Rolleville Church. The speakers include Angela Pulley, Director of Hartland Lifestyle Center, Lanardo Rolle Health Ministry student Hartland College, Shantavia Gittens, Lifestyle Educator. The series ends on August 6, 2017. So far the meetings are well attended and the listeners are very excited with the knowledge being shared. The meetings are being held nightly at 7 p.m.
Note readers that Exuma is another island in The Bahamas located 145 miles southeast of New Providence. It is a lovely tourist resort with some of the most beautiful beaches in the world with a population of about 7,300. There are three Adventist Churches on the island—Mount Thompson, Moss Town and Rolleville.
