16 Young Adults Become the First Ever to Participate in a YSA Conference in the Middle East

Earlier this year, 16 young adults participated in a YSA conference in Beirut, Lebanon, the first conference ever to be held in the Middle East. 

Arabic-speaking members from the Middle East participated for the first time ever in a young single adult conference earlier this year. The gathering was held in Beirut, Lebanon, a nation with a large Christian population and a tradition of religious pluralism. Sixteen young adults from the region wore T-shirts bearing a logo that expressed the theme of the conference: “I will give them one heart and I will put a new spirit within you” (Ezekiel 11:19).

The young adults attending the conference included a new member, a man soon to be baptized, two returned missionaries, one young man about to submit his missionary papers, a very young branch president and members from two districts in the Middle East.
