This Pathfinder's the Prime Minister of Antigua

Source: Adventist News Network

Imagine this: As you sit down for church service during a Pathfinder camporee, you find the president or prime minister of your country in a Pathfinder uniform!

This was the reality for Pathfinders attending a camporee in Antigua last week. Antigua Prime Minister Baldwin Spencer is now a second-year honorary Pathfinder. The prime minister stayed throughout the 5-day event, as well as through the entire church service.

3,000 Pathfinders attended the event from around the Caribbean from August 14-18, 2008. The camporee included a parade of over 8,000 people on Saturday. They marched through St. John's calling for people to rejecting drugs and violence, while asking people to commit to Christ.

You can read more about the camporee and of the prime minister's visit, at Adventist News Network.

With nearly 2 million members around the world, Pathfinders is a coed service organization for youth ages 10-16 by the Seventh-day Adventist Church.
