Youth in South America are making short videos illustrating how they share Jesus for a chance to have their video shown on TV.
Young people living in the South American Division have until April 3 to upload a video illustrating an ongoing campaign's theme: “Friends of Hope."
But there is much more to this event than just a video contest.
This campaign encourages teens and young adults to share a book, “There is Still Hope," with their friends and invite them to church on April 16.
The South American Division expects at least 2 million people to visit Adventist churches in the eight South American countries.
The top 10 videos entries will be shown on church-owned TV channel, TV Novo Tempo. They will also get 10 There is Still Hope books, The Great Controversy DVD, a 2011 Friends of Hope DVD and a webcam.
The first 100 people to register their videos on the website, will get custom mousepads.
Each week, two gifts will be sent to the makers of videos selected by a committee.
