Pathfinders from Kama Seventh-day Adventist Church in Eastern Highlands Simbu Mission (Papua New Guinea) have turned their weekend campout into an opportunity to share Jesus with the community.
Travelling three hours from Goroka to the Western Highlands Mission, the 111 Pathfinders surprised residents of the Jiwaka Province by blowing a trumpet very early on Sabbath morning and conducting branch Sabbath School programs featuring singing and preaching.
Community leaders expressed their gratitude for the Pathfinders’ ministry and joined the group for a combined Sabbath program.
In organising the trip, Sheena Dum, director of the Kama Pathfinder Club, and Dr Nagen, a church member working in Goroka, wanted the campout to meet Pathfinder requirements as well as involve the young people in discipleship.
“Our theme this year is ‘Mission’,” said Mrs Dum. “Therefore, the leaders organised the weekend campout for the Pathfinders to expose their faith and involve them in witnessing Jesus to others.”
The Kama Pathfinders have also been making an impact in their local community, with the children and their parents involved in a new church plant at Pukamil.
