More than 1500 young people attended the Solomon Islands World Changers youth congress, which saw 97 baptisms.
Keynote speaker Dr Hiskia Missah, Associate Youth director at the General Conference, challenged those baptised to “change the world”. Held in Honiara at the Maranatha Hall, the congress highlighted the momentum of the World Changers initiative across the Solomons.
“Everyone has a story of how they have shared their faith, gifting Bibles to young people,” said Dr Nick Kross, South Pacific Division Youth director. Among the stories shared was that of a teacher in a government school who had been witnessing to her students and brought 13 of them to the congress. She is also giving Bible studies to her school principal, who has requested baptism. “Please pray for the young people across the South Pacific who continue to share their faith with friends,” Dr Kross said.
