​97 Baptized at World Changers Youth Congress in the Solomon Islands

Magazine Staff

More than 1,500 young people attended the Solomon
Islands World Changers youth congress, which saw 97 baptisms.

Held in Honiara at the Maranatha Hall, the congress
highlighted the momentum of the World Changers initiative across the Solomon
Islands. Keynote speaker Hiskia Missah, Associate Youth director at the General
Conference, challenged those baptized to “change the world.”

“Everyone has a story of how they have shared their
faith, gifting Bibles to young people,” said Nick Kross, South Pacific Division
Youth Director.

Among the stories shared was that of a teacher in a
government school who has 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.

Those in attendance were asked to
pray for the young people across the South Pacific as they continue to share
their faith with their friends.
