KARACHI: Perhaps it takes just five young people with a vision to change things.
That at least is the hope of a two-month-old Christian youth group, Ambassadors of Gospel. They are organising a seminar, “The Book of Revelation and Current Age”, on May 1, today, at the Bright Home PCCC Headquarter. “We want to change the current belief that being irreligious, being an atheist is ‘in’,” said Romeo, 26, one of the members of the group.
Other members are 24-yearold Romel Aziz, 30-year-old Arif Mohan, 24-year-old Jessica Massey and 27-year-old Hamran Javed. They want people to remember their religion’s teachings and their ‘Eastern’ culture’s values. Saturday will mark the group’s formal inauguration along with its first organised programme. The rites will be performed by Ijaz Inayat, Bishop of Karachi.
Guest speaker for the topic is Reverend Aziz Anwar, a Christian scholar who has been preaching for the past 33 years. Other guests include James Dean, the Pakistan representative of renowned Christian evangelist Derrick Prince, Shahid Kamal, head of a Christian organisation, and other important members of the Christian society like KESC general manager Albert Massey and businessman Griffin Massey.
