Tahitian politician Mrs Teura Iriti made an official visit to Arue Seventh-day Adventist Church on February 12. Mrs Iriti has been mayor of the Arue, a commune in French Polynesia, since 2003. She was accompanied by a team of 29 councillors during her visit.
Literature evangelist Bruce Tefaatau and the church members offered 30 copies of The Great Controversy and a family Bible to the mayor and her team.
“The mayor is a Protestant Christian and has promised our church members that she will read The Great Controversy,” reported Fanny Brotherson, area manager of the literature evangelists in French Polynesia. “Last year, she purchased all of our health books from literature evangelist Raimana Brotherson, who met her at the Arue City Hall. Praise God!”
