North Island New Zealand
Brethren from all Locale Chapters in the North Island of New Zealand participated in the much awaited Family Day and Sportsfest Event held at the Otara Pool and Leisure Centre last August 18, 2018.
The activities revolved around the theme “New Zealand Kasama Sa Paggawa”. Through the act of participating in the activities held on this day, not only have the brethren exercised their bodies physically, the brethren found the need to become closer with one another, and were able to see each other and bond despite coming from farther places.
Brethren from different Locale Chapters and Groups in the North Island were divided into different teams of which they played for. There were a total of four teams, each being represented by a specific team colour (Green Team, Blue Team, Gold Team, Red Team). In preparation for the highly anticipated Sportsfest event, brethren from the Locale Chapters in the North Island made the additional effort to come together with one another to practice before the event took place.
Throughout the day, brethren participated in various sports activities prepared for the event which included Zumba, Cheerdancing, Dodgeball, Volleyball, Basketball and challenges which required vital skills such as teamwork and cooperation. With the variety of events planned for this day, all present brethren were able to gladfully participate in the event.
Isaiah 40:31 King James Version (KJV)
But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.
Finally, the results for the overall winning team were announced, the awarding ceremony took place and a picture taking session commenced to conclude the event.
