Prime Minister Hon. James Marape, encourages all students throughout the country to walk with God as they grow.He made these remarks during the 40th Grade 12 graduation of the Kabiufa Adventist Secondary School in Goroka, Eastern Highlands Province today.
He commended the students for making it this far and encouraged them to pursue their dreams, putting God first in their lives.
“To the graduating batch, if you put God first in your life, that will be the secret to living a joyful, successful and enjoyable life on planet Earth.
“I want to encourage all the 238 graduating students here today, that you are not an accident nor a coincident.
“In Christ, you all have a purpose in life.
“There is no secret to success that I am unashamed to pronounce to you that the Jesus you know or have found here in Kabiufa Adventist Secondary School must be the Jesus you walk out of here with and must be the Jesus you walk with for the rest of your life.
“Nothing is impossible. If you set your goals and pursue them, you will most certainly achieve them,” Prime Minister Marape said.
He said your prime minister will not give you success in life nor will anybody else help you progress in life: we are just there to help you walk through in life.
“If you remain focused with Jesus all the time, it doesn’t matter what, He will take you back to the right road you are supposed to journey on.”
He reminded students that God has placed their talents and resources along the way and He will ensure they walk that safe journey as they progress in life.
Prime Minister Marape was a former student of the Kabiufa Adventist Secondary School, from 1986 to 1989.
