With the Lord's help, the Zambian Youth Convention, which was held from December 23 to January 1, was a success. Over 250 youth were in attendance from across the country, as well as four brethren from Zimbabwe. Among them were the two mission leaders, Brother Message and Brother Clifford.
The theme for the youth convention was "Youths for Christ". The key verse was: "Out of the mouth of babes and infants hast thou ordained strength because of thine enemies, that thou mightest still the enemy and the avenger." The theme song was hymn #633, "Jesus Loves Me".
The event was held in the Central Province of Zambia, at the Bwacha secondary school in Kabwe. The brethren faced difficulties in organizing the event, especially with limited resources due to the economic issues in the country. However, the youth convention, which lasted over a week, not only occurred but was a blessing to all involved. The Lord can do wonders when we place our trust in Him. May His name be praised.
