Youths clean, spread the gospel

A GROUP of 20 youths from the Apostle Fellowship International church in Lautoka was up early on Saturday morning collecting rubbish as part of its community service program.

They worked through the Balawa residential area filling sacks with garbage and clearing overgrown hedges.

Youth pastor Malakai Loanakadavu said the group wanted to encourage the concept of working together.

"We want them to work together in achieving a common goal and be able to trust and co-operate with the person next to them.

"This is a team-building exercise where they have to work in partnership," said Mr Loanakadavu.

He said the program was introduced to prevent youths from engaging in criminal activities.

"What is happening today among our youths is of concern to us.

"We don't want any of our children to be involved in crimes and so this is one way for them to keep busy, to be around like-minded people and those that are their age group," he said.
