PACIFIC UNION TEAMS TRAVEL TO PATHFINDER BIBLE EXPERIENCE
Every year, Pathfinder Clubs across the North American Division participate in PBE the Pathfinder Bible Experience—a team challenge that focuses on immersion in the Word of God. Competing in four rounds—Area, Conference, Union, and Division—teams of six club members study and memorize large portions of specific books of the Bible. This year’s PBE books of the Bible are the books of Esther and Daniel.
This Sabbath, 184 teams from across the division have gathered at Camp Hawthorne in Florida for the Division Final. Among the competing teams are 13 teams from the Pacific Union, representing 9 of our churches from 5 of our conferences.
We invite you to join us in praying for this great event—and for the continued success of all those wonderful pathfinders who have worked so hard to reach this milestone. We are so proud of you!
In Esther 4:14, Mordecai asks a question that each of us should consider when we wonder whether the Lord has a ministry and a task for us. The text that our Pathfinders have learned so well asks, “Yet who knows whether you have come to the kingdom for such a time as this?”
All God’s People is taking a “Spring Break” next week but will be back on May 4, 2018. See you then!
