Another workshop called “Trash in Trash out” was conducted by Brother Clegg and Sister Aparna. This was an activity based workshop where they assembled many day to day objects like video games, story books and scriptures and invited the youth to fill the nearby jar with their favorite things. Ultimately they were invited to understand the importance of each choice on spiritual growth.

When asked by the leaders as to who all from the present youth were planning to go on mission, all hands were raised passing a message that they were all ready to embark in the service of God.
