No matter what season it may be, one of the most fun things that young people get to do is head outside, play for hours and explore the real world out there. Some of the most fun outdoor games do not involve hi-tech toys or gadgets; all you usually need are fishing rods, a skipping rope, bottled waters and perhaps some buckets of endorphins to make it throughout the day. Here in California, we brag cities that have so much great urban and theme parks; great fishing spots and also larger natural playgrounds less than an hour outside of the city-limits. All these natural amenities are a bite of haven for the members of the Keepers Club International as an avenue for camaraderie, friendship and team building.
For the couple of months, the Keepers Club Los Angeles has been enthralled by the enjoyment brought by hiking. Going to Ranyon Canyon Park, which is just 15 minutes away from the Keepers Headquarters in van Nuys was absolutely awesome. Enjoying the great view of the Los Angeles City from the peak of the hill was sure a heavenly accomplishment. It was also fun to do fishing and Navy Ship touring when the Keepers Club LA together with the youth of San Diego. It was a thrill to stalk an elusive wild trout or matching the hatch and a challenge to catch fishes when your companions caught some. But over-all, nothing can beat the purpose of having such time to unwind from the pressures of life and a way to relax or simply have fun and we so much love every minute of fishing with each other, our family and friends. The Keepers from Delano on the other hand, made sure that they get to enjoy outdoor strolling in the season of harvest in their laid-back city as they visit the Universal Studios Hollywood. The fulfillment part of the visit was even if that was Saturday, they were able to try all the rides and shows for the whole day (thanks to the tips from the internet) which made their visit to the so-called entertainment spot in the world oh so worth it.
Numerous studies have shown that outdoor places and nature spots are a truly healing platform. Getting kids outside can enhance social behavior, help alleviate stress, promote optimal psychological functioning and improve recovery from physical trauma. In fact, many youth therapies involve getting kids outside.
With the Keepers Club’s goal to reach thousands poor young lives to get back on the right track, outdoor activities and bonding have been a great contributor to fulfill this cause

There’s nothing like a sunny, sweltering Southern California day, but at least before summer of ‘17 ended the Keepers of Kern County, particularly in Delano, knew how to end it. And while most teenagers spend a day in the pool, on the beach, or just go out with their friends, these young people spent an entire day to entertainment capital.of the United States, the Universal Studios in Hollywood. The Wizarding World of Harry Potter, Jurassic Park, Transformers, The Mummy, Waterworld, Despicable Me and even the Simpsons are just some of the few of the year-round attractions of Universal Studios. Asides from the main attractions, there are thrilling next-level rides, awesome merchandise, and even food that represents their respective themes. It is also fun to say that that was the first time a few of the Keepers have been there. The experience and the excitement have apparently swayed a great influence over them.
But most of all, by the end of the day, there is only one man responsible for this immersive and epic outing: the Founder and President of the Keepers’ Club Int’l, Pastor Apollo C. Quiboloy. The Keepers Club of Kern county is more than grateful and blessed to Pastor Apollo for this one of a kind experience and they are so excited to meet the Beloved Pastor for His King is Coming Tour in Los Angeles this October and in Kern County in November.

In our last article, we have tallied up some of the achievements and frequent activities of the Keepers particularly in Southern California. Now, we’re moving on to the East Coast Keepers Club. The Keepers Club members of New York, Virginia, Connecticut, and Chicago also have their fair share of victory reports. The recent King is Coming Tour in Queens, New York was definitely most successful, and the East Coast Keepers are none too happy to become part of it. Within just months of practice — from square one — these young people already had something to present for the Son and for the world: through music. Strings to woodwinds to brass: a symphonical variety that appeals the senses and glorifies none other than the Father Almighty through the Appointed Son! This little light of mine, I’m gonna let it shine. That was the Kingdom Children Growth School (KCGS) students’ pledge.
These delightful little children from ages _-_ also had their own way of joining in the limelight, delivering entertainment for the people and pride in each of their parent’s glowing faces. Like, who wouldn’t want to experience being a witness of them singing their hearts out to yours, full with promise to be the hope of our future as well as theirs? The KCGS pretty much works in the same way the Keepers Club International does: to bring up the children and the youth in a way that they grow up to become wholesome, productive, and righteous individuals in their respective places. Of course, the KCI and the KCGS are under the leadership and initiative of Pastor Apollo C. Quiboloy, who always had plenty of room in his heart for the children and the youth. Not just a soft spot, but a heartfelt belief, care, and bottomless love for all — no matter what age, race, or social background; because, after all, love is the greatest. Love is all we need.
