With 100 baptisms and eight new areas visited, the Betikama Adventist College Chaplain department has seen its goals for 2015 realised.
As students share Jesus with others, the message also reaches their own hearts.
Chaplains began the year hoping to lead students to know Jesus Christ personally and to organise students and staff in outreach programs into the unentered areas of the Guadalcanal Plains.
Every Sabbath students and staff have been engaging in singing, praying, Bible studies, health talks and sermons. The local people are supportive and approximately 400 people attend these programs every week.
“As students share Jesus with others, the message also reaches their own hearts,” said Betikama chaplain Pastor Baxton Ri’imana. On September 26, students, staff and parents witnessed 98 students and two elderly ladies baptised in the Lunga River. One-third of the students baptised come from non-Adventist homes.
