Notwithstanding even the inclement weather, the youth of Pentecostal Missionary CHURCH of CHRIST (4th Watch) Japan District were even filled with enthusiasm to overcome difficulties in order to gather in Aikawa Fureai No Mura Yagai Center, Atsugi, Kanagawa for their annual Youth Conference last August 16-18.
"Redeeming the Time in Full Partnership with the Apostle", taken from Philippians 3:14 was the theme that gave inspiration and challenge to the ever eager youth delegates as they embark to this 3-day event.
Right after the Opening Service in the afternoon, the Talent showcase highlighted the first day of the conference. Presenting their prepared special numbers, each performances not only gave smiles to the audiences but also lifted high the name of the Lord.
The second day was even more jam packed with organized services and seminars, making the youth delegates more equipped with the empowering and moving inspiration from the seasoned ministers. A workshop in the afternoon further enhanced the skills of the participants in photography and videography.
At night, the straightforward message from Pastor Maya Cruz, Japan District Coordinator, promptly made way to the sincere and earnest dedication of almost every youth present in the gathering.
On the last day of the event, an exciting and refreshing fellowship hour that was arranged outdoor in a riverside picnic site was held.
Improving not only their physical demeanors and mental aspects, but more importantly their spiritual characteristics, the success of this Youth Conference once again made the Youth of Japan District reach another milestone in their godly service.
