More than 600 young people from the western sub-region of Solomon Islands Mission gathered on Sambulo island in Marovo lagoon—the second largest saltwater lagoon in the world—for a week-long camp meeting from May 25 to 30.
Themed “Lord, send me”, the event featured sessions run by several speakers, including Solomon Islands Mission Youth Department director Pastor Steve Aquilla. He led sessions throughout the week on how to study the Bible, using the World Changers set of Bible-reading guides that combine some of the core truths of Scripture, as well as practical discipleship topics.
The training was one of the strategies adopted after a SWOT (strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats) analysis conducted by the Youth Department of the Solomon Islands Mission. With the analysis, they found the World Changers resource to be the best tool to equip SIM young adults to make disciples.
