March 16, 2013, Northeastern Mindanao Mission of Seventh-day Adventist Church joins the world in celebrating the Global Youth Day. The theme of the celebration is “One in Compassion”. The Adventist Youth led the celebration with the help of the church members to a meaningful activity. There are groups of Adventist youth that visited the hospital, fed the hungry, and donated their blood to the Red Cross.
The young people of the Butuan Central SDA Church(BCC) started the Act of Kindness at about 2:00 in the afternoon. They visited Pagatpatan, Butuan City and taught the children songs and stories about Jesus. The Adventist Youth also rendered beautiful songs to entertain the children. Keena Ofiasa one of the Adventist Youth said “I enjoyed and was greatly blessed by the activity. Watching the Children sing for Jesus is a very heartwarming experience.” She also added that it is a great opportunity for the Adventist Youth from different places to do their best in communicating love by sharing Jesus. She is looking forward to the next Global Youth Day.
The Youth Department of Northeastern Mindanao Mission under the leadership of Pastor Max Dante Obbus is thankful to the district pastors and church leaders who are very supportive of the program.
