By the Grace of God, the NGC’18 ended with a surplus under the smart leadership of Mr. Christudas KV, Mr. Selwyn Samraj and the hardship of Mr. David Koza and his LAC team. All the delegates were welcomed with their respective state maps. The conference was blessed with more than 510 delegates including volunteers and children from all states except Sikkim.
The Bible expositions were led by Rev. Bonny Resu and the devotions by Mr. Valentine Davidar. All the messages were powerful and helpful to rededicate all the delegates to follow JESUS model. The NGC started with a keynote address by Prof. Himadri and ended with a challenge by Mr. Saji Easo.
By God’s grace, all the seminars went on well, except for one seminar leader’s unavailability. The six seminars were – Barren field and Burdened farmer by Mr. Stephen Victor; Believer and Bureaucrat by Mr. Brkos Warji; Church and youth ministry by Mr. Samuel Prasad; Debating world and Defending word by Dr. Kethoser Aniu; Society violence and Spiritual Voice by Mr. Shantanu Dutta; Social and Spiritual ethics by Mr. Ratna Babu. The feedback from the delegates was – all the seminars were very useful for the UESI constituency and the selection of the seminar leaders was excellent.
