Aware of their parents’ sacrifices especially amid the pandemic crisis, Binhi members of the Iglesia Ni Cristo (Church Of Christ) from the Ecclesiastical District of Taiwan participated in a seminar on “Teen Budgeting Tips.” It was held on June 20, 2021 through videoconferencing.
The district Binhi president, Brother Matthew Daryl Abalos, led the seminar. He shared with his fellow youth tips on how to be thrifty, properly managing their allowances through identifying their needs and wants, and setting aside for savings and investments.
“I learned how to save money, and to not spend it on unnecessary things I might not need in the future,” said Mara Kaitlyn Borrero, one of the attendees. “I also learned to spend my savings more on what I need instead of what I want.”
The activity concluded with a Bible-based lecture by the district Christian Family Organizations (CFO) overseer, Brother Julius Caezar Santiago. “The activity gave them insights on how important it is to save up or to invest for their future needs. Moreover, they were also taught that they should not put completely their trust in the riches of this world but, most of all, we should put our hope and trust in God,” he said. — With reports from INC News Section
