Youths get together

THE Christmas season encouraged a group of youths to come together and share their time and skills to make a difference at the weekend.

The youths were part of a Jesus Festival on Friday evening where they decided to unite to clean up the Namosi and Naitasiri wards at the Colonial War Memorial Hospital on Saturday.

Co-ordinator of the youth group and pastor, Misaele Fokilau said they realised that as youths, they must be encouraged to help others without discrimination. "It was an initiative that was aimed at teaching youths that coming to church is all about helping people outside of their church too regardless of who they are, what they believe in, their colour and their differences," he said.

Mr Fokilau said their age group was one that would essentially make up the next generation of leaders and for this reason, this initiative was even more important.

"It trains them by instilling leadership qualities in them to be able to help others before helping themselves," he said.
