The final dance recital was held at Our Savior Lutheran in Orlando, FL, Sunday August 8th during worship service. Lynn Hogan from Prince of Peace, Orlando, FL assisted youth with creating their own tie-dye t-shirts featuring their own unique designed RGOH Healthy lifestyles logo which they wore during their final dance performance.
They also received journals and were encouraged to journal about struggles, challenges and successes, praying about each subject and include Bible verses that helped them deal with their struggles.
We look forward to partnering with them next year and getting more youth involved.
