Chinese youth look to ‘change the world’

ChineseYouthInAustraliaYouth and leaders from The Salvation Army’s Chinese congregations across the Australia Southern Territory met recently at Anglesea’s (Victoria) YMCA recreation camp for the second Territorial Chinese Youth Retreat.

Themed “Change Me, Change the World,” the weekend retreat offered opportunities for worship, study, visiting and relaxing. Delegates also enjoyed a high ropes course, a giant swing and the beach.

Speakers included Clayton Church of Christ Pastor Chee Sang Fah, Territorial Youth Secretary Captain Rowan Castle and Divisional Youth Secretary Captain Craig Exon, with sessions delivered in Mandarin, Cantonese and English.

“It was a really good experience for all the youth,”said Naty Lee from the Surrey Hills Chinese Corps and member of the organizing committee. “Our Chinese corps are pretty widespread and we hardly see each other…but through this event we can see different people and we all enjoy being together.”

Lee also reported that some of the delegates committed their lives to Christ.
