Reggie James from Lurd Dipa Jharkhand. Bro. Simon began the session with action songs. It was followed by Bro. Reggie James’s session with video clippings. He shared his own life experience.
During the retreat the animators spoke about self-esteem, kindness and character building. They made the participants to become aware of their own life, where they stand and the goal of their life. Through the power-point presentations, action songs and videos clips they were able to convince the participants that they are precious in the sight of God and to each other. They were invited to live their lives happily and meaningfully.
