Ambassadors for Zion
...JUNIOR AND SENIOR HIGH YOUTH IN MISSION
by High Priest Corwyn Mercer, General Church Youth Leader
The Winter Youth Retreat was held between Christmas and New Year’s Day (December 27th–29th) at the Gathering Place in Independence. Twenty-seven youth
from Arkansas, Idaho, Missouri, and Oklahoma were in attendance.
High Priest Austin Purvis was the director with President James Vun Cannon and Apostle Roger Tracy providing the teaching. The classes focused on why the Remnant Church is the Church of Jesus Christ.
Wednesday, December 27th, the youth participated in the prayer service at Center Congregation. On Thursday, December 28th, they went bowling at The Main Event. The highlight of the retreat was the fellowship shared by the youth. As a result, they have come to know each other’s needs, and they continue to pray for one another. We, the church, can provide strength to the youth through our prayers for them and each other.
