This past Friday and Saturday, the international youth ministry of Phnom Penh were very excited to host two combined youth sessions with guest speaker Ari Sloots. Ari is a base leader with YWAM in Perth, Australia and popped in to talk to our youth on his way back to Perth, after leading DTS training in Battambang (northern Cambodia).
This was the first combined youth event of its kind from the international youth team and was an exciting kick-off of things to come. 60 youth showed up on Friday night, excited and ready to go. The night kicked off with some ice breakers, a spontaneous joke contest, worship, and a message from Ari.
Over the two sessions, Ari talked about hearing God’s voice. On Friday, he spoke on the different ways God speaks, using examples from the Bible as well as his own experiences. And on the Saturday session, he led a workshop session with the youth, encouraging them to practice listening for the voice of God.
