Samoan Youth on a Mission to Juneau

Juneau Adventist Christian School hosted 27 youth from the Anchorage Samoan Church on July 29. Under the leadership of Masae Fanene, youth director, young people painted the school and completed work around the school, including a newly painted sign.

The team was met by a bus and over the next few days, the Juneau Church delivered food, constructed an outdoor shower and befriended and supported the team.

One of the biggest treats came Sabbath as the Samoan Youth Choir led the morning services. Their testimonies touched hearts and their singing left an indelible impression on everyone.

Many youth wanted to stay or at least come back someday. The lessons learned of caring, service and friendship will be ones the two churches will share for a long time.
