The president of the Seventh-day Adventist church speaks about the 2013 Impact South Africa event.
In 2003, the 1st trip I took outside the Philippines was to attend the 1st ever World Conference on Youth and Community Service a.k.a. Impact Thailand. In 2007, I attended the 2nd one in Taiwan. It was there, during the closing ceremony that they announced that the 3rd conference would be in South Africa. It was then that I decided to go.
So, after 6 years... and on and off saving for this event... I will finally be attending the 3rd... but this time, in a country (South Africa) and continent (Africa) I've never been in... that a climate I've never had (winter). But this time I would have a more significant part in the whole event than just a youth delegate. I will be singing with the praise team organized by the General Conference. So I will be taking you to some "behind-the-scenes" of the convention (if possible).
P.S. I will also be assisting AIIAS with regards to having a booth in the convention site. So I may be meeting with alot of AIIAS Alumni and potential students.
