Sandusky Church world wide offering
Adventists Give Funds To Project The country where a man was born a century and a half after his life history was written will benefit from an offering given today by Sandusky Seventh-day Adventists. Funds given today by the local Adventist church, cooperating with 14,000 Adventist congregations throughout the world, will be channeled to the ancient Bible country of Persia, now Iran, where Cyrus the Great was named in a Old Testament prophecy written a century and a -half before he was born. Specific project for the worldwide offering is the building of an elementary school in Iran and the enlargement of the Iran Adventist Academy to accommodate both boys and girls from grades one through 12. Karl Robinsen, Sabbath school superintendent for the local church, said that the country of Iran has particular significance for Seventh-day Adventists, who believe in the validity of Bible prophecy.
