From April 26 to May 7, 2017, a National Youth Convention was held in New Washington, Aklan, Philippines.

NEW WASHINGTON, PHILIPPINES—From April 26 to May 7, 2017, a National Youth Convention was held in New Washington, Aklan, Philippines. The theme of the event was "Making God Known". The guest speakers for the event were Brother Rolly Dumaguit (GC 2nd Vice President and Regional Secretary for the Pacific Region) and Brother Radu Ionita (GC Youth Department Director).  

 

We were blessed to have 700 individuals gathered for the youth convention and on Sabbath there were over 800 attendees. For twelve days the attendees studied the word of God, heard God's message, and fellowshipped with one another.

 

May God bless each soul that was present. May the truths heard at this event transform lives to His glory. Let us keep the young people of our church around the world in our prayers. 

 

"The Lord is not glorified when the children are neglected and passed by. They are to be educated, disciplined, and patiently instructed. They require more than casual notice, more than a word of encouragement. They need painstaking, prayerful, careful labor. The heart that is filled with love and sympathy will reach the hearts of the youth who are apparently careless and hopeless," {Counsels on Sabbath School Work, 77}.
