More than 200 Seventh-day Adventist students from tertiary institutions around Fiji took part in the recent Global Public Campus Ministries (PCM) weekend.
On Sabbath, October 21, the students gathered at Lautoka Adventist School for Bible study, group activities and discussion. Trans Pacific Union Mission youth director Pastor Faafetai Matai was the speaker.
The aim was to equip the students so that they could share the Bible with other students on campus and to start small group ministries.
Following the rally the students went to a park in the city area where they shared their testimonies, sang worship songs and gave out GLOW tracts. Some people in the park were so moved that they asked the students to pray with them.
The students adopted the acronym TSI (Total Student Involvement), a variation of the Total Member Involvement (TMI) campaign.
Speaking after the event, Pastor Matai said it was important for the students to recognise their responsibility to share the good news about Jesus.
“They need to realise there is a divine reason why God put them in their schools,” he said.
“It’s not only to get a degree and a good job. While they are in that institution they are an ambassador for Christ to share their faith and lead someone to Jesus.”
Global PCM weekend is an annual celebration of campus ministry across the globe involving worship, fellowship and service, and organised by Seventh-day Adventist Public Campus Ministries. The message is follow Jesus, embrace His mission and change the world one life at a time.
