Young people from Apotiko Adventist church in Lae district, Morobe, are working tirelessly to reach others through community service.

In June, they visited Bobong village, Erap, donating two water tanks and providing health checks, including malaria tests, for around 100 people.

Led by community health worker Edward Juakun and pathologist Francis Mandari, the team took three hours to do the health checks.

The 80-plus youth group also provided 50 cement bags to the Guruf Adventist church at Intuap, Markham, and 10 roofing sheets to the Markham church. Youth leader Samson Wagi said they plan to help build a church at the Morobe Patrol Post.

Mr Wagi thanked the Give Them The Keys initiative for providing funding through the Papua New Guinea Union Mission youth department for the projects.

Mr Wagi added that young people are the hands and feet of Jesus and need to work while they still have the energy.

“Youths must be fully involved in spreading the gospel, but firstly, we must touch people physically by doing our best to provide some form of service,” he said.
