I lördags anordnade vi en juniordag. Juniorer från Norrköping, Växjö & Västerås fanns på plats! Dagen bjöd på bland annat lära känna lekar, föreläsning om tro, hopp & kärlek, workshop, 5-kamp & shahrå! Vi kan sammanfatta dagen med ett ord SUCCÉ. Dessa juniorer fick ny andlig kunskap och samtidigt möjligheten att lära känna andra syrisk ortodoxa juniorer. En dag som bjöd på en otrolig gemenskap. Tack först och främst till Gud för denna fantastiska dag, samt ett stort tack till alla ledare & deltagare #SOKU#SOKUsjuniordag2018#syriacorthodoxchurch#suryoye#oromoye
