Changed lives thanks in part to Adventist Information Ministry
Daniel Bluford contacted AIM after his move to North Carolina. In a new town, he was searching for a church. Daniel grew up as a Baptist, but was considering a local Church of God. He contacted AIM in the winter of 2014, and one of AIM’s CSRs upgraded him to be connected with an Adventist church in his area. When Daniel spoke with an AIM chaplain, he expressed a desire for a closer relationship with Jesus, and a wish to begin Bible studies. On June 6, 2015, after four months, he became part of the church family at the Washington Seventh-day Adventist Church in Williamston.
Frank Buchholz called AIM in November 2014. While on the phone he decided he wanted to be connected with the Adventist church for Bible studies. Frank’s wife Suzie also joined the studies with Larry Cates, a Sioux City (Iowa) church member. On August 22, 2015, both Frank and Suzie joined the church by profession of faith. They have a friend named Wes, who lives in a nursing home. Cates has also given Bible studies to Wes, who plans to join on profession of faith.

After visiting the church Lee began attending their weekly Wednesday evening Bible study. Lee, who was baptized in 2015, is now a member of the Seventh-day Adventist church in Aiken — and he is still enjoying the church!
