Around 390 Pathfinders, Adventurers, directors and counsellors from across the Cook Islands Mission (CIM) gathered in Aitutaki for the third CIM Camporee, held October 5-9. Attendees were from clubs representing Atiu, Rarotonga and the host island of Aitutaki.

Themed “Giving Our Best”, the event started with an opening ceremony held at Orongo Park. The event also featured outdoor activities, honours, awards, worship and a fair. The highlight of the program was the baptism of seven Pathfinders on the Sabbath.

Seven Pathfinders were baptised.

Guest speaker Dr Nick Kross encouraged and challenged all Pathfinders and Adventurers to “Know, Grow and Go for Jesus”. Around 30 other young campers answered Dr Kross’ appeal, wanting to receive Bible studies and be baptised.

“We praise the Lord for our guest speaker Dr Nick Kross, who presented powerful but simple messages for the young people,” said CIM president Pastor Eric Toleafoa.

“This was a wonderful opportunity to celebrate and showcase Adventist junior youth ministries to the local community. The challenge for us now is to keep this momentum going in our local churches,” he added.
