New Caledonia Latter-day Saint Youth Learn Rewards of Service

While many young people in New Caledonia were out playing during their last days of winter break, a group of youth from The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints were cleaning the Kamere, Ducos Beach area.

When the young New Caledonian Latter-day Saints were asked to lend a hand, they didn’t hesitate to say “Yes!”

As plans were made for a community service project, the idea was born to beautify a beach that was in need of a good clean-up.

With large bags in hand they set out to collect the rubbish along the Kamere, Docos Beach and the surrounding area.  Several bags were filled to capacity with cans, paper, packaging, and general rubbish.

The youth leaders and the young people found that serving their community not only helps beautify the beach and land, making it more enjoyable for everyone, but is fun and rewarding as well. 

Living a life of service is a principle taught to members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints from an early age at home and at church.

In addition to Sunday church services, young people in every congregation meet one evening a week for activities that include: service projects, learning new skills, developing talents, playing games, and participating in cultural experiences.
