Final Palau Gospel Days Service

IMG_1328

The concluding service of the Gospel Days Celebration was the morning service of June 29th. (There was a dinner that evening of which I will also post pictures). The 3+ hour service included several choirs, a stirring message by Pastor Billy Kuartei, ordinations and dedications to service and the signing of an agreement between the Palauan Evangelical Church, Liebenzell Mission and the GIDI church of Papua Indonesia. It was a great honor to be (a very little) part of it.

We thought the choirs on Sunday could not top what we heard during the week, but we were wrong.

Pastor Hedrick Kual was prayed over as President of the Palauan Evangelical Church. Hedrick is a PIU graduate and was part of my first seminary class back in 2008.

The church also ordained four new deacons. I really appreciated how they included the families in the pastoral and deacon ordinations

The group from GIDI sang some very upbeat worship songs
