Philippine IYC Delegation in Switzerland and Germany

On Tuesday, 4th of June 2019
Here I am could also 31 members of the Philippine NAC Youth say, who  travelled to Duesseldorf to attend the International Youth Convention a celebration of faith and identity in the future. During 3 action packed days they entertained  at the booth of SOUTH EAST ASIA with Philippine folklore  songs and native games such as Tinikling. Together with their Indonesian brethren they attracted always a crowd whenever they performed. However this was just a fraction of the 250 events offered to  some 30 000 other youth from over 100 countries.
Highlights of the event were attended in the ARENA, a stadium where the Pop Oratorium I am and an evening titled HereThereEverywhere with artistic presentations introducing all continents. The absolut highlight was the Divine Service conducted by Chief Apostle Schneider. 


On their way they stopped in Switzerland where they were hosted by the Zurich and Bernese Youth. An excursion to Turren mountain gave them the opportunity to touch snow for the first time in their lives and at the ancestral home of the retired District Apostle a refreshment of cool milk and Swiss cheese was offered. The youth from Bern North hosted a b-b-q at Langnau Church. Apostle Samuel Tansahtikno conducted a divine service at Uster Church. Sightseeing in the Capital Bern, the Rhinefalls of Schaffhausen and a visit at NAC Switzerland head office rounded up the Tour in Switzerland.  It was indeed a once in a lifetime experience our youth never will forget. We thank all sponsors who made this possible.
