Young Adults from the
Arkansas-Louisiana Conference


July 9–25, 2018


South Africa

Come. Share the good news.

Join ShareHim and the Arkansas-Louisiana Conference as we partner in evangelism with fellow Adventist brothers and sisters in the beautiful nation of South Africa. There, YOU will have the privilege of being the guest speaker for a nine-day evangelistic series held by a local church.



Lives will be changed. Including yours.

As you share your faith, you’ll experience God’s power at work in your life and in the lives of others. What’s more, you’ll return to your home mission field more grounded in the word and more passionate about sharing Jesus.



Never preached before? No problem.

Many ShareHim speakers are first-timers. We’ll give you ready-to-preach sermons, and our experienced trip manager will be there to help you from beginning to end. All that’s required is the power of the Holy Spirit and your willingness to share the good news.



God is calling YOU to share Him. How will you answer?

Wherever you are, God calls you to share Him—perhaps even in South Africa.
Will you answer the call?
