Lutheran students in Jiwaka attend Bible camp


OVER 600 students from the 16 Lutheran run schools in Jiwaka attended a week-long Bible camp in Banz last week.
The second Lutheran Students Reformation Bible Camp started on Oct 25 and end on Sunday.
Organising committee chairman Junior Tai said the Bible camp concept was initiated last year by Banz Elcong Primary School, Banz Lutheran Day High School, and Banz Lutheran Church College to commemorate the reformation movement and teachings of the Bible started 500 years ago by Lutheran reformation founder Martin Luther.
The theme of the camp was based on “young hearts for tomorrow’s journey”.
Former national events coordinator and Banz Lutheran College lecturer Roy Miringke said involving children in their crucial stage of changes and development and an awareness of the changes taking place around them would help them make better choices in life.
National Lutheran Evangelism Department director Rev Elymas Bakung and Lutheran Education Secretary Elizah Wagai commended the institutions for coming up with the concept.
“To address such social issues, we need to constantly involve our school children in such programmes,” Wagai said.
“The church believes in nurturing future generations who should be disciplined and God-fearing.
“Partnership with the church, teachers, parents and the government to promote Christian values is the way forward to producing good citizens.”
About 30 pastors and elders were involved. The students were urged to take positive approaches with the Bible as the roadmap.
