Solid on the Sabbath

November 01, 2002

Jonathan and Laura Griffith took a bold stand for the Sabbath that nearly cost him his job at Honeywell Electronics. But through much prayer and the help of the North Pacific Union Conference Public Affairs and Religious Liberty Department, he was able not only to keep his job and the Sabbath, but was assigned the daytime shift he had always wanted.

On Sept. 14, Pastor Willard Santee, assisted by Lee and Margaret Wilhelm of Otis Orchards, Wash., baptized the Griffiths, the Wilhelms’ long-time friends. Also baptized were Joshua and Rebekah Vermeylen, of Post Falls, Idaho, with the assistance of their mother, Leah Vermeylen. •
