Between September 21-23, 2012 the SDARM Campus in Porumbacu, Romania, hosted the Youth Convention of the South Ardeal Field, with the topic, „Victorious Youth”. „We will rejoice in thy victory, and in the name of our God we will set up [our] banners” (Psalms 20:5 Romanian translation).
The convention opened on Friday, at 7 P.M. after which we discussed about the things that we consider we need to overcome in our lives. For the morning worship on Sabbath, each sleeping room prepared an encouragement Bible verse on the topic of the convention. The Sabbath School was organized in 2 classes, due to the fact that we also had visitors from other fields. After the Sabbath School, we had the divine service, conducted by br. Cristian Paulescu. The topic of his sermon was „Re-trace Your Path”; we were urged to:
1. Decide what is important
2. Have a daily schedule to use time wisely
When brother Davi Paes Silva, the President of the General Conference, paid a short visit in Romania last winter, his lectures on righteousness by faith made such an impact on his listeners that they asked him to come back for a more comprehensive seminar presented to a larger audience.
As a consequence, the Council of the Romanian Union decided to have a seminar on righteousness by faith held by br. Silva in August 9-12, 2012 at the SDARM Campus in Porumbacu, Romania. The news spread and about 300 people from all over Romania and some brethren from Hungary, Germany and Korea gathered together to spend wonderful moments listening to the 6 lectures presented in a simple but impressive way. At the end of each lecture, the participants had the opportunity to ask questions to receive more clarifications on issues difficult to understand.
The national choir, the brass band, other instrumentalists and the children presented their items bringing their praises to the Lord.
May the Lord help the seed sown during those summer days bring bountiful fruits to eternal life.
“Feed my lambs” was the first commission entrusted to Peter after his denial of Christ, as a sign that his repentance was accepted. As fulfillment of this urging, different camp meetings for children and teenagers have been organized in several fields of the Romanian Union in the last few years. During summer these take a larger, if possible, national character. So, this summer such a Teenagers Camp Meeting took place at the SDARM Campus in Porumbacu, in August 5-8 with 60 teenagers present. They were encouraged to develop healthful habits of exercising, rest, eating, of diligence, order, mutual politeness and respect, Scripture memorizing, Christian ministry and fellowship. They did many things together: they studied, sang, prayed, had debates and workshops, cleaned the banks of a nearby river, went hiking, canvassing, and became friends!
During the students´ holiday, a youth convention was organized at the Camp of our church, situated in Porumbacu.
The number of participants was not very large, however those who attended enjoyed a time of beautiful fellowship, as well as the joy of winter time.
The topics presented on this opportunity centered around „Friendship“, a relationship analyzed from the perspective of interpersonal interaction, the way in which we interact with the group of which we are a part, namely family and church; also, the friendship with Jesus, which will visibly bring about an improvement of the other social relationships.
