There was joy as church members of Vailoa Saoluafata Seventh-day Adventist Church in Samoa witnessed 11 young people give their lives to Christ and be baptised on August 9.

The baptism marked the end of a two-week evangelistic meeting themed “Truth for these Times”, which ran from July 27 to August 9. The meetings were organised by young people as part of Samoa’s focus on Total Member Involvement and the Trans Pacific Union Mission’s Harvest month.

Pastor Orion Savea officiated the baptism on Sabbath.

“The 11 that were baptised were mostly youth including two couples and they were all new converts,” he said. “God is pouring out His spirit to His people to share the message in these last days.”
