The Youth Ministries of the Merry Villas District and the Adabraka District (Merry Villas Zone) of the Church of Pentecost have organized a four day zonal camp meeting (KASA Camp 2016) at Abuakwa State College at Kibi in the Eastern Region of Ghana.
The camp meeting which brought together over 300 youth from the two districts was under the theme: “Called to hear and obey God’s voice as a Youth” (1 Samuel 3:9-10).
In his address to welcome the youth to the camp meeting, the La Area Youth Leader of the Church of Pentecost, Pastor Samuel Yaw Asare encouraged the youth to avail themselves to all the activities of each session.
“Commit yourself and your future, prayerfully to God and have a deep intimacy with Him,” he added. As December 7 polls get closer, Pastor Yaw Asare urged the participants especially the Christian youth of this country to pray for peace for the country. “Let remember Ghana in our prayers as we encounter with God,” he added.
The Zonal Youth Leader, Elder David Nezer told the participants that God is still speaking in “our generation just like in the days of young Sameul and how he speaks to us vary from one person to the other. But often times we are distracted with so many voices to the extent that we are unable to hear what God is saying to us.”
The participants at the camp meeting were taken through topics such as the Youth and Homosexuality, hearing God through his word, my course my profession, my story, and the youth and sex. They were also taken through aerobics and sports as well.
The camp meeting affords the participants the opportunity to spiritually edify themselves.
