CFC Kids for Christ Timor Leste successfully had their 5th National Conference last September 18, 2011 at Escola Primaria No. 4 Nu Laran, Dili. It was the biggest gathering of KFC with 800 delegates, including parents and other family members, who came to witness the kids showing off their talents and enthusiasm in participating in the different activities, which included workshops, sports and creative competitions and the animated sessions. This year’s conference had the theme “Lidera Ba” (Take the Lead), from Ephesians 6:10.

The event kicked off with Holy Mass celebrated by Fr. Luis Bonaparte, Episcopal
Vicar for Re-evangelization of the Diocese of Dili. Fr. Luis mentioned in his homily that kids also play a special part in the work of evangelization, and that’s why we should
look upon them as special just as Jesus sees them. He added that kids need activities like the Conference, so that their leadership skills can be honed as early as now. He challenged the young adults and parents to be good role models to the kids and help them to take the lead.

The event was also graced by the Director of the National Commission for Children’s Rights in Timor Leste, Dir. Adalgisa Dias Ximenes. In her opening remarks, she pointed out the importance of our role as overseers to the children i.e. that we also need to know their basic rights. She also mentioned the possible partnership in terms of the programs that we have for the kids to develop their leadership skills through Christian faith formation.

The kids intently watched and listened to the compressed sessions as fellow KFC and CFC members made their presentations to highlight the central message of the talks. The creative competitions added more excitement to the event while the kids showed off their talents in singing and dancing. At the same time, the rest of the young KFC boys enjoyed playing futsal.

No KFC conference would be complete without the famous fire hose bath! After the day’s activity, all the kids rushed towards the open field ready to get wet. A refreshing way to end the day!

It was indeed a day of fun and learning. Kids have their own way of teaching us adults. They never get weary for as long as there is fun, faith and friendship, especially in KFC. We adults get tired easily because we tend to forget to have fun the moment we face the realities of life. Let us learn from the kids as they take the lead!
