To expose the youths to more career options, the youth home collaborated with Wing 401 of the Air Force and the Recruitment Center of National Armed Forces to provide the youths with a greater understanding of military life. Upon sitting in army trucks in route to the military camp, the youths felt an adrenaline rush as the atmosphere changes. A military veteran shared his experience, detailing his daily life in the military and the stories never fail to amaze the youths.

A commanding officer introduced the various tours along with the benefits of carrying out duties overseas. He encouraged the youths, especially those who are graduating from high school soon, to think about a career in the military if they are interested, as it is stable and provides job security.

Next, the youths got their hands dirty by going through some of the activities on site. It was indeed a rare and exhilarating experience for these youths as it was their first time to be in such close proximity with military equipment.

Lastly, the military instructors demonstrated various techniques in self-defense. This part was also intriguing to the youths and they all started off with being pretty confident with their skills. However, they were astonished with the skills of the instructors and slowly develop a sense of respect towards them.

Even though the activity was not long, the youths were able to experience life in the army and understand the challenges these military men face. Many of these youths hope to develop a deeper understanding for this field upon graduation.

The Mustard Seed Youth Home is grateful towards the support from Wing 401 of the Air Force and the Recruitment Center of National Armed Forces. We hope to continue provide our youths with more opportunities and they will be able to live their lives to the fullest!

You must love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your being, with all your mind, and with all your strength. The second is this, You will love your neighbor as yourself. (Mark 12:30-31)
