Youth challenged to guard against God-given talents


The former Kasese District Education Officer, Mr. George S. Mayinja has challenged the youth to jealously guard against their God-given talents and work towards promoting them.

Mr. Mayinja sounded the challenge yesterday while officiating at the launch of a “Talents’ Show Group” at Nyakasojo Church of Uganda in Kighuthu Anglican Church of Uganda, Bwera Archdeaconry  in South Rwenzori Diocese.

Nyakasojo Talents’ Show Group is part of the 09 branches that have been established across the Diocese by South Rwenzori Messiah Radio under the Words of Hope Programme.

Mr. Josephat Mugisa commonly known as Papa Surusuru who is the Central Chairperson for the “Talent Show Groups” across the Diocese, echoed the need for the parents to educate their children for the sustainability and development of the church and their families.

Mr. Nelson Kasoka, the “Talent Show Group” Chairperson for Nyakasojo Branch explained to the congregation that they decided to launch the association and carry out a mini-fundraising drive to solicit funds for the procurement of a tent and plastic seats for use by the members.+
