More than 300 young people from Malaysia and Brunei recently gathered together for a Youth Alive conference in Goshen, Sabah. Organized by the Adventist Church in Malaysia (MAUM), the Youth Alive Conference was a collaboration between the health and youth ministries departments intending to empower young people and offer them resilience skills to overcome risky behaviors such as addictions through the power and connection to Jesus Christ. The program was attended by distinguished representatives from Malaysia’s Anti-Drug Enforcement Agency, who emphasized the value of the Youth Alive Program and its positive effect on the lives of young people and their families. “Through this ministry, we hope to instill in our youth the values of love, compassion, and self-discipline, thereby empowering them to become influential leaders in their communities,” stated Pr Gara, the Youth Ministries director for MAUM.
