An online meet-and-greet activity of KADIWA members from three ecclesiastical districts in different regions held on February 20, 2022 forged closer and stronger ties among them.
The young brethren from Central Europe, Mediterranean, and Thailand Districts included musical performances from their fellow members and fun games that served as icebreakers. The breakout sessions that followed, in which the attendees were grouped according to hobbies or interests, aimed to further strengthen not only their sense of belonging but build camaraderie and cooperation.
Through the guidance of each district’s Christian Family Organizations (CFO) overseer, the KADIWA leadership from the three districts worked together to facilitate the event toward success.
“We shared ideas that made the activity more interesting and fun to do. The interactive games allowed the attendees to know each other better and forged stronger ties although we are living in different countries,” Judith Imus narrated, a KADIWA officer from Mediterranean District. “It was such a great feeling on our part as officers.”
“It’s through this kind of activities that we got the chance to meet our fellow KADIWA members from different parts of the world. Even though we are in different time zones, this activity allowed us to share our stories, helped us out building our friendship, strengthened our bond with each other, and most especially, we were inspired once again to stay strong in our faith, ” said Kathleen Mae Neukrich, the KADIWA chairperson in Central Europe District.
“In this activity, unity and joy are evident to all the brethren,” said Louie Manuel, a KADIWA officer from Thailand District. “We firmly believed that participating in this kind of activity will not only gain new friends from different locals and districts but also to be united with the Church Administration in giving glory to our Almighty God.”
Brother Ramil Regino, the district supervising minister of the Ecclesiastical District of Mediterranean, addressed the attendees and reminded them, through the Bible, that God expects them to uphold Christian values and to have wisdom in choosing friends. — With reports from INC News Section
