For The Strength of Youth Conference
Lubumbashi, DR Congo!

EFY is just part of the summer fun in the USA but here in Lubumbashi it is new stuff.
This summer the DR Congo Lubumbashi Mission area had its first EFY all though here is is called JSF, JEUNES, SOYEZ FORTS.

What an exciting event. The youth from all over the mission came for a full week to participate in discussions, inspirational talks, activities, games, talent show, a dance and a grand testimony meeting.

There were 240 kids in attendance and they stayed at a college. They were put in to groups of 10 kids and were mentored by a counselor who was a returned missionary or a youth leader.
It was the first time most of the youth had left their homes and it was a very big deal.
We were not involved in the program but watched from afar and witnessed the first Strength for Youth program in this area.
