Youth leaders to partner overseas students on tour


Christian youth leaders from various ministries in Port Moresby are uniting to partner with overseas college students for a city tour to strengthen Christian the faith.
Inter-youth Wave (IYW) director Thomas Hola said 153 students were coming from Planetshakers College in Melbourne and ISee Church Brisbane, Australia.
Hola said the team would tour and do humanitarian and charity activities in the city.
“Our youths will be partnering with the Bible college students and visit schools, pray for patients at the hospitals and visit nearby villages in city.”
Hola said non-government organisations (NGO), the Next of Kin Productions, P2-UIF Band, The Voice Inc, The Salvation Army, National Capital District Active City Development Programme and the National Youth Development Authority were keen to work with them.
He urged sponsors and donors who are interested to invest in the youth movement in the nation’s capital to join them.
“International director for Planet Shakers, Pastor Neil Smith, through a video call asked churches and NGOs to support the growth of the youth ministry through IYW,” he said.
“We can see the change already happening in the IYW and believe investing in it is investing in the next generation in Papua New Guinea.”
Acting director general for National Youth Development Authority Reuben Akia appreciated that Inter-youth Wave has no church boundaries and was willing to help and promote the youth tour in the city.
Past Inter-youth Wave rallies and movements attracted more than 8000 participants and now plan to reach the Pacific Island regions.
Hola said interested stakeholders who want to support and others who want to join
the Youth-Wave move could join.
