Drawing together the youth members from all local congregations in the district in the Ecclesiastical District of Greater Toronto, Ontario, the “KADIWA & Binhi Taste Avenue” proved to be a “blast” as it brought them immense joy and excitement while bolstering their faith and brotherly bond.
Organized by the officers of the Church’s two youth organizations, the activity was held on May 22, 2022, at the district office compound, along McNicoll Avenue, Scarborough, Ontario, Canada.
KADIWA and Binhi members from all the local congregations, including a group worship service (GWS), prepared dishes specific to a region or country. These delectable dishes they then displayed in booths that they themselves also constructed and designed. They thus spent time bonding with their fellow youth when they delightfully sampled cuisines from countries, such as Lebanon, South Korea, Jamaica, Japan, Chile, and the Philippines, among others.
To enliven the atmosphere, KADIWA and Binhi musical performers took to the stage and gave live musical performances of Iglesia Ni Cristo original music.
“It’s a way to meet new people from other local congregations. We can also learn from here, having tried foods of other countries. It’s good to know what other people might feel enjoying their respective cuisines,” Carissa Lara Arenas, secretary from the Local Congregation of Rouge Park happily remarked.
“Brother Eduardo V. Manalo, the Executive Minister of the Iglesia Ni Cristo (Church Of Christ), intends that the Church’s youth is active in serving God while keeping the love of brotherhood alive. We’re united with such biblical aim,” said Brother Gibrl Legaspi, district edification overseer. — With reports from INC News Section
