2008 LDS Tri-Stake Youth Conference


This is the Greenville East Stake minus me since I am up on the balcony taking the photo! All of these great teens are choosing the right path. They stand out sometimes as the only teen in their school who does not drink or use drugs or even see R rated movies. It strengthens them when we can get them all together and they can see that they are not alone in their decision to follow Christ. It is awesome to be around them.
Our service project this year was cardmaking for http://www.amillionthanks.org/ . Here is one of the posters for one of the card stations that were set up in a couple of areas on campus. This is the ever so cute Nick Cunningham. Even the guys got into the cardmaking after the intro to the service project which was a video of servicemen and women from the website listed above. These are the Gaffney and Blacksburg teens making their cards. Our original goal was 500 cards. They got real ambitious and increased it to 3000!
Our final tally on the cards was 837! We were a little disappointed but the schedule did not allow us as much time as we thought for the service project. We took the youth white water rafting on Thursday and they had a dance that evening. On Friday, we had 3 very inspirational seminars and then another dance that evening. Saturday morning we had a 2 1/2 hour Testimony meeting which is where the teens got up in front of everyone and bore their testimony of the truthfulness of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. I am now looking forward to the 2009 Conference!

I have other photos and some videos of the dances but my precious grandchildren just got here so I am going to visit with them and post the rest later! Can you blame me?
