Around 130 students gathered at Markham Road Primary School in Lae (PNG) for the fourth Morobe Adventist Students’ Association Biannual Convention from January 7 to 14.

This year’s event was a collaboration between the students’ ministry and Morobe Mission. Themed “Preparing for the Final Crisis” (Revelation 14:6-9), the convention aimed to equip and empower students with the knowledge and tools necessary to face the challenges of the world while staying firm in their faith.

The convention brought together students from all districts of Morobe Province. According to Morobe Adventist Students’ Association media coordinator Doulos Ken, the diverse group of attendees fostered an atmosphere of unity and encouraged cross-district fellowship. “We witnessed the power of collaboration and the strength that comes from gathering as a community of believers,” said Mr Ken.

With a variety of activities and talks, the event also featured a lineup of speakers. Papua New Guinea Union Mission (PNGUM) Sabbath school and personal ministries director Pastor Miller Kuso presented the message for the morning sessions and Pastor Jonathan Vera led the evening meetings. Healthcare professional Dr Andrew Bareng also presented talks during the convention on how to stay healthy physically and spiritually.

The highlight of the event was the baptism of seven students and one older man from a Pentecostal church. “Witnessing these individuals accept Christ and embark on their spiritual journey was truly a moment of celebration and gratitude,” said Mr Ken.
