Brazil: Sung Hwa Vacation Camp Workshop
Prepared by FFWPU Brazil
On July 12 to 14, 2019, a vacation workshop was held at a camp in the New Hope Sports Center – CENE. The participants were young people aged between 12 and 18 years old who are part of the Sung Hwa group. The workshop motto was “Youth, what is your mission? Enlightening, this is my mission! ” More than 30 participants from different cities in Mato Grosso do Sul attended this workshop. We had the opportunity to fortify our spirit and to motivate young people by studying God’s words such as the Divine Principle and the Holy Bible. We also shared information regarding professional life and how it can be associated with the practice of living for the sake of others. It was also a great opportunity to get in touch with nature since each team could sleep in camp tents.
We conducted our studies through lectures, group meetings, dynamics and recreation. In order to fix the knowledge at the end of each lecture, we had group discussions where each team had to answer questions prepared by the lecturers. In addition, this camp allowed each young people to meet old friends and to make new ones. They could also develop in their hearts the capacity of working in teams and the ability to live for the sake of others. Through that, they could raise awareness of how important each one them are to God and True Parents, since they are True Parents’ HOPE in transforming this world through the practice of true love.
There was also a talk session with a fire department major (Major Centurião). He talked to the youth about the importance of his work regarding saving lives and the relationship with his team. Through that, he demonstrated to each young person that, whichever profession they may choose, it will always be connected to living for the sake of people and society.
