Youths attend power packed village rally at Fo'ondo
More than 200 young people from different Christian denomination gathered together at the Fo’ondo SSEC village in North Malaita recently to participate in a power-packed evangelistic campaign ran by the Youth director of the Seventh-day Adventist Church.
The programme was initiated by the local congregation of the Seventh-day Adventist church in that area.
It was named ‘Elijah Project’ because of the message of Elijah that is to be repeated again but especially by the prophet Malachi.
It talks about the message of Elijah that ‘the Lord will turn the hearts of the father to the children and the heart of the children to their father.’
Morning and evening sessions were conducted to facilitate the role of youth leadership in the community.
Varieties of topics such as HIV AIDS, the effect of smoking and drinking on young people, cultural and religious practices were carried out.
Pastor Levi Hou, the district pastor of the Seventh-day Adventist Church in that area said that the programme was a success and he was asked by the local community to run a similar program again in the near future.
On Thursday of that week, the young people spent time playing and socializing together. Parent were in full support of the programme that day.
The 8-nightly programme was the highlight.
Each night there were special items of singing and praises through drama conducted by young people.
The main subject for the ‘Elijah Project’ Programme was based on the four dimension of Biblical Stewardship.
The programme begins with Christ as the answer to all sin problems.
By the death, the life and the resurrection of Jesus sinners can have the assurance of Salvation.
Throughout the meeting the young people were reminded again that the everlasting activities of Body temple, Time and the Sabbath, Talents and spiritual gifts and possession, Tithe and offering can be practiced only if there is a love relationship between God and us.
On the last night, the famous video ‘Em wrong bilong Me’ was screened.
It was a story about a young female high school student who contracted AIDS and was mistreated by her parents. She eventually died. A lesson can be learned to avoid mistreatment for the unfortunate young people who went through such experience.
