NASEA and Bureta Methodist circuit youths were today told that they were the light of the world and that they were like beacons for their other counterparts around the world.
Speaking during the youth seminar at Nasea Methodist Chuch, Bureta Methodist Circuit head Reverend Niko Radiva told youths that they played an important role in saving their lost counterparts out in the world.
"Many of us youths and Christians alike are failing in our duty as beacons as we waste our time in other worldly things that do not matter," Mr Radiva said.
"How can your other counterparts find their way to church when you as beacons fail to shine forth the much-needed light that they need," he said.
"Prisons are filling up to capacity with youths, our streets are littered with the homeless and this tells us something, we are failing to play our part as Christians," he said.
Bureta Methodist youths are currently touring Labasa on a cross rally and will spend three days in Labasa for a spiritual revival with youths in Nasea Methodist. Labasa Methodist Youth forum representative Viliame Taufa said most of the 29 youths were in the north for the first time and they had enjoyed the tour so far before they returned to Ovalau on Monday.
"We laud the support of the mini Methodist circuits within Labasa for their support and in the care of these youths since Friday and these mean a lot to us," Mr Taufa said.
"We are also running free medical check-ups for youths here in Nasea as their tour progresses and the medical department in Labasa have been very responsive in assisting us with free check-ups for our youths," he said.
"There are a number of events that we are taking part in during these three days before we wrap up the rally today," he said.
