Last week, Otterbein Staff Member Allison traveled to Johannesburg, South Africa, for the 2018 Global Young People's Convocation (GYPC). Held every four years, the GYPC brings young people together from all over the globe for worship, fellowship, leadership, and conversation. This year, the 331 delegates represented 40 different countries. In addition to meeting young people of faith from many different cultures, Emily, Dominic, and Allison worked on creating legislation to bring to the next General Conference session in 2020. They also toured cultural sights around the city, including the Apartheid Museum. We are thankful for the experience our West Ohio young people had, the leadership they provided, and we pray for the work they will continue to do in The United Methodist Church.
