Thousands of Seventh-day Adventist young people from around Saint Lucia stepped out into their neighborhoods and communities on Sabbath, March 17, 2018, 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 Quigly Morris said that Seventh Day Adventist Youth in Saint Lucia would be acting as Jesus’ hands and feet, with the primary goal to encourage persons through the distribution of gospel literature and prayer.
A coordinator for the Castries Seventh Day Adventist Church, Erland Jade George, indicated that an unprecedented number of young people helped organize local activities during the fifth annual event where approximately nineteen churches in the north of the island came together at Constitution Park to impact the city of Castries. They distributed food and water, prayed with persons, sang and encouraged persons along the way.
Global youth day was launched on March 13th, 2013 and 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.
