10,000 young people attend evangelistic series, 524 baptized in crocodile-infested river

By @Adventist_News, special to A Sabbath Blog

An incredible 32,000 people came to the final night of an Adventist outreach in the South Pacific. At least 10,000 of them were young people.

The meetings were held in the city of Honiara, capital of the Solomon Islands. About half the population came to at least one night of the 10-meeting series.

524 people were baptized on the final weekend. And after each person was baptized, they were given a lei around their necks. Hey! What else would you expect in the South Pacific!
