The District Apostle started the meeting by addressing the current situation we find ourselves in. He assured all that they remain in his thoughts and prayers during this time. After the official #DareToCare launch video, the District Apostle then handed over to Apostle Jerry Joubert. The Apostle gave a brief overview of the plans for the weekend. The plans, headlined by the divine service for young people which will be conducted by the District Apostle on Sunday 9 August, also include a virtual music concert, discussions by the Apostles and various fun physical activities.
His presentation was followed by a music video by Tarryn Lamb. The song titled "Set Me Free " brings attention to the negative impacts of gender-based violence in our communities. Masters Student in gender studies, Andrèa Alexander, then presented the campaign against gender-based violence which will be the theme for the fun walk/run over the weekend.
