Picnic and Promotion

Once again, Sanjeevaiah Park became the center of attention for the Hyderabad district. This time, a picnic was organized for the youth and the focus was the visit of our Chief Apostle to Raipur in November.

In order to prepare for the event, local youth meetings had been held in all the congregations of the District. The youth who wanted to join for this picnic in the park, were requested to reach the venue at their own expense and bring their own lunch.

Finally, around 130 youth of the Hyderabad district travelled by local trains to reach the park by 10 in the morning. The day was opened with some spiritual thoughts and a prayer, and then it was time to discuss the various aspects of the Chief Apostle visit, such as the procedure for registration, the cultural evening and the Divine service on 12 November. Later, everybody participated joyfully in games like Kabaddi, Kho – Kho and sack race.

This program was one of its kind, organized in the Hyderabad District where the expense for food and travel were borne by the participants themselves. Everyone shared their lunch with each other, and it was really wonderful to see the friendly atmosphere all over the place. Altogether, it was a great day of joy and fellowship, which concluded with small presents to the winners of the various games.

At the end of the day, everyone had joyful memories, anticipation of future events, and excitement for the visit of our Chief Apostle.
