Journal of Pacific Adventist History

David and Cecily Hay produce the Journal of Pacific Adventist History out of the desire to record the history of the Seventh-day Adventist Church in the Pacific Islands before valuable resource material is lost forever. These journals are published twice yearly.

"We have nothing to fear for the future except as we shall forget the way the Lord has led us, and His teaching in our past history."

The journals feature inspiring accounts of personal experiences and events that have made an impact on the lives of many missionaries and islanders.
