Health Seminar at Okinawa International Church
December 08, 2016
Okinawa, Japan, is one of the most beautiful islands in the world. On the island is an international Adventist church, and most of the church members work at the United States Marine Corps in Okinawa. The members of the church are from more than 10 different countries. 

The Okinawa International Church held a special health seminar from October 7 to 8, 2016, with Dr. Choi YoungIl, director of the health department of the Northern Asia-Pacific Division, as the speaker. He talked about a co-relationship between biblical health principles and modern medicine.

His lecture showed that Adventist health principles actually lead the modern health trend. He also emphasized that living a healthy lifestyle is not complicated but easy to follow. The attendees received assurance that the Bible is the most valuable book for both physical and mental health.

After the lecture, there was a question and answer time with Dr. Choi. The attendees obtained various practical knowledge on health through the questions and discussion. The church drew up a plan to hold health seminars and programs on a regular basis as a channel for mission.
