Some 120 youth attended the conference’s first Hispanic Youth Festival, where they spent several days growing in spirituality and a greater understanding about the importance of studying the Bible. The youth, who represented the conference’s four Hispanic districts—Cleveland, Columbus, Dayton-Hamilton and Findlay—met at the Camp Mohaven Camp and Retreat Center in Danville. Not only did they participate in recreational activities like horseback riding, sports and a mud-run, they also enjoyed drama, music, devotional memorizations, a preaching competition and a Bible bowl. “The talent and potential of the young people was evident, and is a true testament of how God can manifest Himself through them,” commented Oswaldo Magaña, conference Hispanic Ministries director. “It’s exciting to see the potential in the Hispanic youth of the Ohio Conference.”
 
Manny Rodriguez, an active member in the Cleveland Hispanic district, was the weekend speaker. He shared a series of messages focused on “Letting Go and Letting God,” where he encouraged the young people to allow God to take control of their lives and to share His love with others.
