More than 1,800 Adventist young people are camping out and worshipping together at a division-wide youth congress in Australia, Record magazine reported.
Kids from more than 14 countries across the South Pacific are attending the South Pacific Division's World Changers Youth Congress in Brisbane, Queensland.
Besides the morning and evening programs, the 6-day event also includes several workshops, outreach projects, and excursions to local sports and recreational venues.
One of the highlights of the event was when attendees received special customized Bibles called the World Changers Bible.
"The Bibles include 13 pages of discipleship training material and come with a set of 29 Bible-study book marks, which provide outlines for sharing the Adventist Church’s fundamental beliefs," reported Record magazine.
The Bibles are the result of an 18-month fundraising project by Adventist church members in the South Pacific. The idea behind the Bibles is that attendees will be able to use to help them share Jesus when they return to their home countries —places where it is very expensive to own a Bible.
The youth congress continues tonight at the church-owned Watson Park Convention Centre. Pastor Sam Leonor, chaplain at La Sierra University, is scheduled to be the speaker for the evening.
You can watch the program live online. The live-stream of the Saturday night program is scheduled to begin at 8 p.m. local time. For those of you in the United States, that would be at 5 a.m. EST.
