NEWS AND EVENTS
A FAREWELL TRIBUTE TO OUR COLLEAGUES
By Penny Brink and Johnetta Flomo
Dr. Larry R. Evans
Dr. Larry R. Evans joined the GC Stewardship Ministries Team in 2011. His rich experience as pastor and church administrator as well as his well-connectedness added great value to his personal contribution to the department. He will be missed for his great sense of humor and considerable wisdom. While he is still in the building, he will not have escaped us entirely and this is a great comfort to those he leaves behind in the department!
Dr. Erika F. Puni
Dr. Erika F. Puni elected Director of the GC Stewardship Department at St. Louis in 2005. He led the department's growth and development into Stewardship Ministries. He is well known and well loved in the world-field for his intercultural approach. He maintains that good stewardship is a product of the spirituality of the church. This is a concept by which we will remain challenged and which we will always remember. As "the Boss," he was generous, kind, and a good friend. We wish him, Maxine, Janae-Grace and Jaydon Godspeed!
"The Lord bless you and keep you; the Lord make his face shine on you and be gracious to you; the Lord turn his face toward you and give you peace"
Pr. Mario Niño
Pr. Mario Niño Joined the GC Stewardship Ministries Team in 2010 to serve the world-field. He is now retiring after 50 years of faithful service in the Seventh-day Adventist Church. His service covers pastoral ministry as well as academic and church administration in the South American and Inter American Divisions. His service includes 36 years in Stewardship Ministries! Mario is a a true inspiration to us. He has just finished the work for his doctoral project and will defend it in January, 2016. We look forward to future publications and contributions from "Dr. Niño!"
