Samoan Camp Meeting a Cultural Rejuvenation!

Western Washington Samoan churches came together at Sunset Lake Camp for Samoan Camp Meeting to praise God and reconnect over the weekend!

Erika Puni emphasized in one presentation that the second and third generation immigrants are developing their own culture. This causes a need to make the church and the gospel relevant to youth in the North American Samoan Churches.

"If you are human, you have culture," says Puni. "God works through culture to reach us where we are!"

Look for the NAD & PNW Samoan Camp Meeting coming to western Washington next year!
