The information I heard from one of you here on this forum about Boonstra must be a vicious rumor (that he divorced his wife and quickly married another, or something to that effect). If that were true, I can't imagine how he would be offered a high-level position with the NAD. Check out the article I just read in an online version of an official Pac. Northwest SDA publication:

"Shawn Boonstra, former It Is Written television program speaker/director, and Dave Gemmell, NAD Church Resource Center associate director, are joinging the North American Division ministerial department. Boonstra will be associate director with an emphasis in evangelism training and NAD evangelism initiatives. Gemmell will be associate director with an emphasis on pastoral resources.


"BIG WEEKEND AT NORTHWEST CAMPMEETINGS
Camp meetings around the Northwest are in full swing this weekend. Shawn Boonstra will kick off the first Sabbath program at Washington Camp Meeting, at Auburn Adventist Academy this weekend. He will present the Sabbath sermon and also the Saturday evening message. Mark Finley speaks this Friday evening and also gives the Sabbath morning sermon at the Upper Columbia Conference Camp Meeting at the Upper Columbia Academy in Spangle, Wash. The Idaho Conference Camp Meeting at Gem State Academy in Caldwell, Idaho, features Gerald Klingbeil from the Adventist Review for the Sabbath sermon and music from The King’s Heralds Saturday evening."

I don't even know Mr. Boonstra and have no insight to the true story, but someone here just might owe him an apology!

Grammy, someone got Boonstra mixed up with Shelton at 3ABN and if you will check the other blog on this you will see where they made that mistake. Shawn Boonstra is an extreemly wise man and he and his wife are very happly married (according to facebook). NAD is lucky to get him!

Thank you Grammy Joanne. That was very thoughtful of you. And yes someone is likely thinking of Danny Shelton.

We-e-e-ll, after all ... Boonstra quits as Speaker-Director cuz sick. Typically, a sub would fill in until Boonstra gets better, he is a popular guy. BUT someone else replaces Boonstra. He posts on Topix saying the doctors aren't sure what his illness is. Then, next thing we know, he is associate director for NAD. Ummmm, what happened to his illness? And why didnt he go back to his highly popular Speaker-Director position, now that he is better???

Hmmmmmmmmmmm .....

Boonstra needs to explain why the requirement to remain in with the tares and in the apostasy that has engulfed Advetnism than titilating the masses with peripheral issues. The tares are not removed.

I have a tale to tell, O people! Listen with your ears, to a whale of a tale with musical chairs. Here's cotton candy for you, my son, with the syrup of ambition.

What is a mountain lion to do, at the top of his very own mountain, who wearies of the thing? Does he not come down to the valley below and climb his neighbour's own? How taller it is, how higher by far, how more grandeur now the view!

I looked across my neighbour's house, high upon a hill, and it was to me like if it were the very cost of my distress. And I am sick, sick of it.

The story was that he identified with some of the statements of his former Evangelist-colleque, in Adventist Alternative. A number of preachers are too lame to take a stand fo the truth..not Ellen's truth, but the Bible trith. The cost can be high and few are willing to pay! Money buys loyalty!
