Saturday, October 27, the Abante International team was given the opportunity to volunteer at the Puerto Rico Juventad Mission Board’s Desfile Nacional de Talentos. The annual competition, which showcases individuals ages 18-35, in an all-day event filled with music, pantomime, art, and singing presentations.
The Abante team spent the day serving in various behind the scenes positions, as well as watching the competition itself at the Coliseo Rubén Zayas Montañez. The team was also able to interact with many of the youth from the various districts, and cheer on several of the friends we have made during our time here.
The individual and group winners in each division will have the opportunity to travel to Tennessee next semester for the annual Teen Talent competition held there.
The entire day was a great reminder of the amazing gifts and talents of the youth in Puerto Rico. The Abante team is so grateful to the Mission Board director, Luis Nieves, for allowing us to serve at the event.
