This program was held at the head office Helen Baugh house, Akoka to reach out to the youths in our neighbourhood. The theme for the day was “What’s Love Got to Do with It?” plus Generation Next.
The program was held to sanitize and educate the youths on why this day is special, to get them off the streets doing immoral things in the name of Valentine’s Day.
WHY JESUS’ LOVE? – JOHN15
Greater Love has No One than This
13 Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends. 14 Ye are my friends, if ye do whatsoever I command you.
Two speakers – Elder Kingsley Moore and Evangelist (Mrs.) Loreta Opurum were invited to handle the topic. Both of them emphasized the importance of chastity before marriage for both sexes; and that Valentine’s Day is not an occasion to truncate one’s destiny through sleeping around carelessly as this could result in unwanted pregnancies and the birth of unwanted babies.
NOTABLE QUOTES ON LOVE
The youths showcased their talents through, Drama, Gospel Singing, etc.
After the alter call, some of them rededicated their lives to the Lord.
In all, the youths who numbered about 160 were greatly blessed as the program was celebrated in a joyful and exciting atmosphere!
We have begun Bible Study Class with them on Monday 27th February, 2017 where about 20 youths attended.
