WE ARE ABLE TO HOLD YOUTH CONFERENCE, FINALLY!

After being postponed several times, we were able to help with Chuuk District Youth Conference. The weather and the schedule finally came together last Saturday and the youth were able to participate in their Youth Conference.

Sister Hardy decorated a bit.   The Reeds and Eliasons get ready for the youth to arrive.

The District Leaders did a great job.

Everyone had the opportunity to feel the spirit as they learned about embarking in the service of God. Speakers talked about serving with heart, might, mind and strength.

Each branch provided some form of entertainment. Some sang.

Others danced.

One branch wrote and performed a skit.

The young people loved it! Everyone seemed to have a great time.

The Pioneer Dancing and the Balloon Games were a hit!

We were sad to see everyone leave for home.

Once again, we express our gratitude to our friends, family and loved ones who support us; more importantly, we express our gratitude to the Lord for His tender mercies each day and especially for giving us the opportunity to serve here in Chuuk and the Micronesia Guam Mission.

  1. It looks like it was a LOT of work and planning, but a lot of fun!!! Thank you again for sharing! It’s fun to see that the youth in the church do the same fun things all over the world! Xo

  2. Love to see the pictures and read of the progress. I’ve recently been called as ward mission leader…..and failing miserably. But I’ll keep trying.

    • That is a great calling, but tough. I don’t believe the failing part. We all get better at callings by doing them. I was a Bishop’s counselor 3 times. The Lord kept calling me until I could get it right. Hope I did!
