October 12 to 15th 2018
@ Hebron, Kentucky
Deaf Young Adults for Christ (DYAC) had their 11th annual conference in Hebron, Kentucky on October 12-15th, 2018 with a high record of 28 people. The theme this year is “Called To Serve” based on the Bible verse Ephesians 2:10.
Before starting the conference, some of the DYAC members grabbed the chance to exercise with Farrah Gooding-Santiago as their “boot-camp instructor”. They have learned several tips of squeezing exercise into their busy schedules. And yes, we ended up feeling very sore but felt great!
On Friday and Saturday, Josiah Kelly, Farrah Gooding-Santiago, Amanda Colgan and Joshua Piccerillo gave presentations on keeping & testing our faith and about personal ministry to others. Several DYAC members also helped with devotions and worship service. They enjoyed the theme song, “Our God is an Awesome God.”
On Sunday, the group went to Creation Museum during their annual Deaf Day event. The museum supports the fact that God created the universe and the Bible’s account of six days creation. DYAC members shared their learning experiences at the end of the day which inspires us to keep our eyes on Jesus.
At the end of the conference, we ended up with over-ordered food. DYAC members helped to load the food in our rental van. Nicolette Reynoso and Farrah Gooding-Santiago delivered it to the homeless shelter nearby. The shelter greatly appreciated it.
Many thanks to NAD, DMC, and 3ADM for their continuous support in our DYAC ministries.
Furthermore, DYAC works with Adventist youths to learn more about themselves and their gifts from God as they work together for our church. Our goal is to give young adults opportunities to practice their skills in service for God in support His plan for us. If you know someone who is between the ages of 18 – 38, please encourage them to contact DYAC at DYACDeaf@gmail.com and learn more about the wonderful promises God has shared with us.
