The Lagos Area Bishop and Coordinator of Mount Zion Lighthouse Full Gospel Church, Dr. A.I.R Umondia has admonished youths to imbibe Godly and good principles that would bring about the change needed in the country, stressing the vital role the youth have to play in the development of the country.
He made this call at the Lagos Area Youth Association (LAYA) annual youth camp in Lagos (from August 14 – 18, 2013) with the theme “on the wings of Double Honour”. The camp which drew participants from various denominations within and outside Lagos state featured many interesting and educating programmes during the course of the camp.
Similarly, the LAYA Coordinator, Pastor Daniel Ekanem advised the participants to be good ambassadors of the country in conduct and other aspect of their lives, shuning evil vices and becoming change agents in furtherance of the country’s advancement.
The youth members had an interactive session with a dynamic Youth development coach, Mr. Abiodun Odunuga who counseled the youth on career advancement, stressing that “there is a place for all”. He made the participants to understand that there is urgent need for individuals to locate their place of relevance and stay focus to achieve optimal success in a bid to moving the country forward.
The camp played host to other prominent voices in youth’s development and talented youth Gospel artistes including El-Levite.
The attendees were all thrilled as they all wished the camp had never ended. Every day of the camp came with a fresh program and a promising fulfillment of purpose. The climax of it was Sunday, August 18, 2013 when all danced and jubilated to the achievement of success recorded in the camp.
