Missionaries and Members Preparing the Lunch
Elder Ezra Taft Benson said, "Wholesome recreation is part of our religion, and a change of pace is necessary, and even its anticipation can lift the spirit.” On 6th July, 2013, an activity called, 'Family Fun Day' was held in Lusaka. During this activity, all families of the church and their friends within Lusaka came to be together, play sports, enjoy lunch, and build stronger family and community relationships. The Lord has taught that families are the most important unit of society. These types of activities allow an opportunity for families to build strong bonds, especially when their play is uplifting and wholesome.
"Music, literature, art, dance, drama, athletics—all can provide entertainment to enrich one’s life and further consecrate it. At the same time, it hardly needs to be said that much of what passes for entertainment today is coarse, degrading, violent, mind-numbing, and time wasting. Ironically, it sometimes takes hard work to find wholesome leisure. When entertainment turns from virtue to vice, it becomes a destroyer of the consecrated life".
