The largest missionary project in the world is characterized by bringing together young Adventists who wish to provide social help during their vacations. This year, despite the pandemic, under the slogan “Leave Your Footprint”, the Caleb Mission started with great force in Chile, and many young people dedicated themselves to participate.
“Without a doubt, the Caleb project, inspired by the biblical story of Caleb, a man who did not want easy things, wanted to go further and strive to get that land. With that same spirit, we want the young people, the ladies here in the Adventist Church in Chile, to be able to face, wear this shirt, and face this great challenge ”, expressed Pastor Remo Díaz, director of Youth Ministry for the Adventist Church in Chile.
In the Coquimbo region, young people mobilized cleaning squares, planted trees, painted homes for the elderly, and also held a health fair open to the community, where neighbors were able to receive guidance regarding the eight natural remedies and the importance of practicing them daily.
Pamela, a participant in and beneficiary of the health fair, told how her experience was during the event: “It was good because you learn many things, you learn about healthy eating, exercise, how to have a good rest, and there you also take advantage of seeing if you are overweight; things like that. So it was well entertained."
In the central area of the country, the local newscast, Constitución, highlighted the action carried out by the volunteers with the cleaning of one of the entrances to the city.
In addition to regular social activities, in some administrative fields of the Adventist Church in the country, a week of virtual Caleb meetings was held, where the young people had the opportunity to strengthen their spiritual life and exchange experiences.
“At this point, friends, we have two girls who have made the decision to get baptized. So, dear friends, we are very happy. This is the result of the Caleb project, and we want to thank the Lord,” said Pastor Damián Cabezas, a youth leader in the South Metropolitan area of Santiago.
