Scores of young people packed the Abundant Life Assembly in Bank Hall, St Michael, Friday night to have a grand time at the Live Pure Back 2 School Rally.
From the opening session by the talented group Redefine to the performance of A Few Good Men and The Warrior, the presentations were well received by an audience that included several adults.
Prayers were offered by Bishop Jerry Seale.
Minister of Labour Dr Esther Byer-Suckoo, filling in for Prime Minister Freundel Stuart, told the youths that although their churches, parents and Government had done a great job of providing some of the things and opportunities for success, it was up to them to achieve that success and excellence.
“Plan your time wisely and strive for moral success,” said the minister.
Youthful Pastor Kevin Hunte warned that rebellion and sexual immorality were the tools of the enemy. He stressed that many young people did not know whom they were because they were not close to God.
He indicated that to rebuild or maintain a “wall” of morality, young and old people alike needed to listen to the Word of God, to lean on prayers and to get involved in something positive which would help them to examine their self-worth.
One member of the congregation, Stacy Gamble, won the prize on offer, a digital camera.
Also in winners’ row were Clasita Moore and Janina Mayers of the Zion Pentecostal Church who were given certificates of recognition for their sporting and academic accomplishments.
The session climaxed with presentations from A Few Good Men and The Warrior, with the youngsters dancing and singing throughout the assembly hall.
A Few Good Men won even more fans when they returned for an encore to render Like You.
