Since we started teens team, it has been very unusual to find that it was mostly boys who were committed to attending Teens Club. It was evident that the boys were enjoying spending time with their male leaders who are filling that gap of a father figure. We cannot run away from the fact that our community is dominated by father figures who are irresponsible, who don’t associate themselves with their child’s upbringing and as a result many boys are on the look out for fathers who show interest in them as well. Unfortunately this does not always produce good results; some men abuse these young boys trust by involving them in drugs and other unacceptable behaviours.
Since Noxolo Mokson, our legacy member joined the Teens Club we have seen girls getting more interested in club. Noxolo is still young and familiar with the challenges faced by young girls and she is able to influence them with her amazing testimony and able to set a trend among her peers into living the life that pleases God. She has taught other girls about the best ways of overcoming loneliness without indulging in stuff like alcohol and negative peer pressure . 1 Timothy 4 verse 12 says : “Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in life, in love, in faith and in purity.” We are very proud of having young people who are willing to live a life that is pleasding to God and commit to abstain from sex until marriage.
