Youth Conference 2009!!

What a great ending to a horrible week. Friday and Saturday this past week was our stakes Youth Conference. Our Theme was "Are you ready? to be an example of the believers.

We started our day off with breakfast in the pavillion with a devotional afterwards. We had Brett Hales and David Osmond come and speak. They both have MS and talked about the struggles they have been thru and about the examples in their lives.
Of course David sang a few songs which was awesome and I think the kids really enjoyed it. I know the leaders did.

After the devotional we had rented out Fat Cats for them to bowl and have lunch. It was a great activity.
Saturday after Breakfast, we had workshops where they went to different "stores" in the mall and had someone speak to them.

Mind and Body Works= Sexual Purity by Brad Sanders

The Gab= Language by Jenna Metcalf

An Apostle= Dress by Jill Dickson

Sam B Goody= Media by Dennis Hummer.

They all did a fabulous job. After, the went to the "food court" aka the pavillion for lunch.

We then did our service project which was assembling hygeine kits. We had gathered money and supplies to do 613 kits. It was great to see how the stake came together and how excited the youth were to do this project.

We changed our clothes and did a road rally to a church by the temple where our Stake Pres spoke to the youth regarding "Decide Now" to be ready to enter the temple. We went back to the church, had dinner catered by Olive Garden and then our Testimony Meeting.

I LOVE my calling.. now on to Girls Camp in a few weeks.
