The city of Calabar Nigeria was lit by Christ Embassy youth as they celebrated the International Youth Day with a music concert, orphanage visit and community service.
With 300 teenagers present, the event showcased creative talents and potentials of the teenagers in music, dance, drama, comedy, spoken word and more. Most importantly, 10 souls were led to Christ through the concert.
A major highlight of the International Youth Day celebration was the radio broadcast by the award-winning teens’ leader, Brother Godwin Ovat, on Hit 95.9 FM. Brother Godwin spoke concerning his passion for youth development and personal contribution to the lives of youths in Cross River state, challenging other youths to discover their purpose in life.
Burning with a desire to spread the BLW message to every man’s world, members of the Corpers LoveWorld, led by Sister Eroms Amenkhienan, took advantage of the City Walk/Tree Planting Scheme organized by the government for the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) to reach out to their peers with the Messenger Angel.
Sister Thelma Philip, a passionate teenager, led a team to extend the liquid love of the Father to children at the Ultra Modern Motherless Babies Home, Calabar, with provisions and necessary supplies. They ministered to 20 children and led 15 of them to Christ. Words of blessings were also spoken over the children and financial donations made to the home.
It’s not surprising to see youths of today passionate to make a difference. With current mishaps around the world, the youths are rising up to the truth by the power of God at work in them and they have taken a stand to bring about a positive change and this change can only exist when we share the love of Christ to all. Many will never remain the same again because of the commendable things the younger generation in Calabar and around the world have done.
