Thousands of Seventh-day Adventist young people from around Saint Lucia stepped out into their neighbourhoods and communities on Sabbath, March 19, 2016, to engage in spreading kindness, compassion and hope. The annual special day coined as Global Youth Day, is sponsored by the General Conference Youth Ministries Department and motivates young people to get out of their comfort zones to “Be the Sermon” as they show the love of Jesus in their communities.
Youth Director, Pastor Roger Stephen, said that Seventh Day Adventist Youth in St Lucia would act as Jesus’ hands and feet, as they distribute meals and clothing, visit hospitals and nursing homes. This initiative is also meant to encourage persons through the distribution of gospel literature and prayer. Global youth day is a ministry that engages and networks youth and young adults in Service Ministries for the Seventh-day Adventist Church and to develop an active spirit of service among youth and young adults.
