Youth Lead Out For Christ

The Tonasket (Wash.) Church ShareHim meetings began Friday, March 18, as youth led out for Christ. Candace Cortes, 17, a Tonasket Church member attending Upper Columbia Academy, and Katie Mayfield, 14, a home-schooled student from Newport, Wash., spent their spring vacation preparing for the evening meetings and a presentation for the Peaceful Valley Christian School. In a church where most of the members are close to retirement age or older, their energy and enthusiasm were enviable.

The first evening's attendance total was 29, including all three students from PVCS. One of the Hispanic attendees translated so others could understand the biblical truths as they were presented. Before the second Sabbath evening's presentation, leaders were informed that the computer and projector weren't communicating. Leaders immediately bowed their heads in prayer. When someone went to check out the systems, the person saw the prayers had been answered and the information was already on the screen.

As the meetings drew to a close, three people expressed interest in learning more about the Adventist message. Members thank the Upper Columbia Conference lay advisory committee for their prayers on behalf of the Tonasket Church.
