Miracles happen when God leads.

That was the theme of the one-day programme for youth members of the C.C.C.S. in Samoa this week.

Held at the E.F.K.S. hall at Sogi, more than 200 youth groups from Savai’i and Upolu showcased their talents in singing, skits, hymns traditional Samoan songs and other categories.

Rev. Faitoaga Tolua said the programme  is all about encouraging young people to be stronger in their walk with the Lord.

“The main focus of the church is to lead many of these young souls to know more about the Lord,” he said. “He’s the only answer when we look at many of the challenges they’re facing these days.

“For they’re the future of the country and the church.”

Rev. Tolua said it’s important for young people to fellowship and share their stories about the love of God.

“Many youths are occupying their time wrongly but having this kind of programme will help them physically but most importantly spiritually.”

He told Samoa Observer the programme was held at Malua in the past.

“This is not the first time that the church put together this one day event for our youth. We’re praying that the programme will help.”

 Twenty-three year old, Tavita So’olefai from Savai’i told Samoa Observer that ‘the programme is an eye opener”  for the youth of the church.

“This programme plays an important role for many youth members of the church, this reminds us that we have our role in the community, church and the country.

“For, miracles happen when God leads.”
