When Paul wrote the Epistle to the Ephesians, he emphasized unity in the Body of Christ. Gospel for Asia-supported missionaries chose a passage from Ephesians as the theme for a recent youth conference.
They focused on Ephesians 4:3, "...endeavoring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace," at the three-day-event in South Asia. The conference kicked off with a candlelight procession.
Youth from the local churches led their peers intimate times of praise and worship.
During the teaching times, GFA-supported missionaries focused on unity in the Spirit and living lives fully devoted to Jesus Christ.
Prayer was also an important part of the event. Many of the young men and women prayed for strength to live for Christ and serve Him more fully.
After worship, teaching and prayer, conference participants performed cultural dances specific to their region.
By the end of the three-day conference, many chose to follow Jesus as their Savior. Several felt the call to serve full-time in ministry.
Only the Lord knows how many of these young adults will become missionaries, leading their own people to Jesus.
