Young Men in Bangalore Commit to Duty to God

More than 30 young men from the Bangalore India District gathered in the hills of Kanakapura to learn about the new Duty to God program and learn spiritual lessons from challenging physical activities. The young men used a rope and pulley system to cross a pond. They went for a morning run, climbed a mountain, and learned to rappel. The activity was concluded with a testimony meeting.
