Fathers and youth

■ The community of Beacon Valley and Shekinah Full Gospel Church celebrated Youth Day and Father’s Day with an event themed “the hearts of the fathers”, which focused on cultivating relationships and bridging the gap between fathers and young people. The event was held at the Pelican Lodge, Zeekoevlei, on Saturday June 16. “It is important to bridge the gap between fathers and young people, especially when we’re living in a community with absent fathers,” said Carmelita Witbooi, a youth leader, from Colorado Park.
