13th Youth Festival of Pentecostal Christians held in Lviv
“What is your life focused on?” was the question in the focus of the participants of the 13th Youth Festival of Pentecostal Christians, held in the village of Radatiki in Lviv region from July 30 to August 3, 2018, Religion in Ukraine reports citing the website of the Pentecostals of Ukraine.
The forum was attended by more than 600 participants. The motto of the event was a verse from Matthew 6:33, “Take care first of all about the kingdom of God.”
“I am convinced that Biblical values are the only right foundation for all spheres of life. Actually, for the purpose of their establishing and organizing the festival was held,” says the regional head of the Youth of Lviv region, Markiyan Klepach. “Here you can boost up your faith, strengthen your convictions, see hope for a good future for young people in Ukraine through the Scripture perspective. In addition, this is a great opportunity to meet and find friends.”
The youth saw a special sign of God in the weather conditions: when in the neighboring settlements there were heavy showers with hail, at Sokol recreation camp, where the festival took place, only a small rain settled the dust.
“These five days were some of the best in my life! The festival is simply incredible,” participant Mariana Lazar shared. “At a time when you get up earlier in the morning to stay alone with God, at a moment when a thunderstorm is around you, there is a shower, the trees break, and you realize that God protects you, and there is only a drop of rain falling on your head. These are the days when you live and see the wonders of God filled with His Word. It was so blessed that it was impossible to describe, but we just wanted to say that Our God is Almighty God!”
Leisure activities in the camp were rich and varied: lake, catamarans, football, volleyball, and the Brainstorm intellectual-logical game organized by the Association of Evangelical Students.
During the festival there was another historic event: elections and the presentation of a new youth leader of Lviv region.
