A Treasure in Your Heart - Convention in México
December 26-29, 2012, the 10th Christian Endeavor Youth Convention was carried out in Tapachula, Chiapas, Mexico. More than 450 young people from all over the country and even from the neighborhood country, Guatemala, gathered to celebrate this annual convention.
Andrés Jacobo, US native musician preached on the theme “Un tesoro en tu corazón” (A treasure in your heart). Many participants lives’ were touched through the sermons and also through funny challenges where their biblical know-how and dexterity were tested. From beginning to end, Jesus Christ was calling the heart of some attendees who finally received Him as their only Savior. Others had such experiences which impacted their personal lives that they decided to stay on the path of purity by living according to the Word of God: Loving the Lord our God with all the heart and with all the soul and with all the strength. It means we have to use all what we are to seek Him, to make a firm decision to not stray from His commands but to hide them in our heart in order to not to sin against Him (Psalm 119:9-11, Deuteronomy 6:5).
God demands an increasingly holy life, to be witnesses to the nations and to preach the Good News, so we must be consistent and congruent with the faith we have. What actually make these reunions unforgettable are the whole experiences that each young person keeps in heart at the end of it, just as making new friends from different places, learning bible content, growing up spiritually, and sharing all this with other youth of same age and belief.
We already look forward to the activities of this year and we hope to keep on growing spiritually in the name of The Lord.
…Till the next national activity!
