Elmshaven is a beautiful place to visit ant to be taken back on time. Not only are you transported to the late 19th century but back to the fascinating history of the Seventh-Day Adventist Church. It is truly remarkable to know that God's true spirit of prophecy and heavenly angels came to visit the home of Ellen G. White. Remembering that if we have a genuine connection with God, our he too, can have heavenly visitors within it's walls. You must visit for the history, but also for the religious reflection that your visit invokes. Many blessings as you visit...
