Above: Adventist teens competing on TV talent show
A group of Adventist teens in Chile recently competed on a TV talent show called "Talento Chileno." This is literally the Chilean version of "America's Got Talent."
But here's the cool part: They didn't just compete on the show. No, they straight up witnessed for God!
The students, ages 13 to 20, are part of a group called Hand Life. They do a style of pantomime called hand mime using ultraviolet lights.
For their audition, they acted out the story of Creation and Redemption. They passed the audition stage with "yeses" from all three judges.
In the next round of competition, Hand Life "painted" recent events that have affected Chile: the trapped Chilean miners, this summer's volcano eruption and last year's tsunami. Hand Life finished their routine with the words "God is bigger than your problem."
When one of the judges said Hand Life was an Evangelical group, the TV show host interrupted him, saying they were an Adventist group.
Even though Hand Life didn't get enough votes from viewers to secure a spot in the next round, they accomplished their goal of sharing God's message.
Judge Francisca García-Huidobro said that although she was not a Christian and didn't believe in God, she still felt Hand Life's message was something everyone can relate to.
Judge Rodrigo Díaz especially appreciated Hand Life's message and told them he saw something different in their performance.
"God is love," Díaz said. "And I see you; you radiate something that cannot be explained. I see love in you, I see love in your performance. What you do is by far the most new and interesting that at least I have seen on 'Talent Chileno.' With creativity, with content, with a message that truly touches your heart....What else can I say? Congratulations."
Just another creative way young people like us are sharing Jesus! How will you share Him?
