ADVENTIST Youth Ministries (AYM) members of the Bantama Seventh-day Adventists last Sabbath (September 16, 2017) joined their colleagues of the AYM around the globe to celebrate Pathfinder Day in Kumasi.
Members of the PF were supported by the Adventurers Club and the Adventist Youth (AY) to make the day a memorable one, after they held a colourful parade in their honour.
According to the PF Leader, Master Guide Selina Boakye, “there has not been any such colourful celebration of a kind,” and expressed hope that future PF Day celebrations would continue in that success.
The utmost support was rendered by the King’s Ambassador Master Guide Club, an association of Master Guides, who joined to oversee the celebration of the day.
She led the PF class to sing the PF Anthem and followed to recite the PF Pledge.
What gave the day a defining shape was the inauguration of the Ambassadors Club, one of the youth classes within the AYM.
And this is the first time an Ambassadors Club has been in place in the annals of the books of the AYM in Ghana.
The occasion was also used to conduct an investiture service as well, and to launch the 2017 Annual Youth Camp.
Inaugural ceremony of Ambassador Club
At a ceremony at church in Kumasi, the Bantama Church Youth Leader, Master Guide Stephen Boakye presented members of the Ambassador Club in a parade to the AYM officials from the Northern Ghana Union Mission (NOGH) and the Mid-Central Ghana Conference (MICG).
The Youth Director of the NOGH, Pastor Dan K. Owusu Ansah, in his address at the inauguration of the Ambassador Club commended the AYM of the Bantama Church for the feat.
Quoting from 2 Cor. 5:20-21, Pastor Owusu Ansah said as ambassadors, they must reconcile the world to the Christ through the church.
He stressed that having gone through the classes, it was pertinent for them to seek continuous training to remain as good ambassadors for the Lord.
“Loving the Lord Jesus Christ and promising to take an active part in the work of the Adventist Youth Ministries, you be of good behaviour and a youth group with self-control who will remain focused to reconcile the world to the church through evangelism”, Pastor Owusu Ansah stated to encourage them.
The Youth Director of the MICG, Pastor Stephen Kwadwo Adusei prayed to usher the new club into the hands of the Lord.
After prayers, he charged them to proclaim the testimony of He “who has called them from darkness to His marvelous light”.
