Khon Kaen Tri-District Conference

On 18 – 19 October Elder and Sister Moleff attended the Khon Kaen, Udon, and Ubon, Tri-District, conference located in Khon Kaen.  Also on Sunday 19 October, Elder and Sister Moleff attended a Church History Fireside at the Changwattana Chapel.  In addition to serving as a Family History Missionary, Sister Moleff also records the Mission History.

Buses were rented to take members of each district to the conference.  Affordable rooms were rented at police and military establishments to house church members from Saturday evening to Sunday morning

The Saturday session of Conference was held in a large assembly hall in the Ampur Muang Government building.  Internet was not available in the conference hall.  We provided Family History training via Power point presentation.  The Saturday session was presented differently than any other previous district conference session in that booths were prepared that displayed different gospel topics.  The object was that a group of members would move from booth to booth to receive the gospel message prepared for a particular booth.  Family History shared its booth with one on the Endowment.  Lunch and dinner were provided by church members.

A Cultural Program followed the Saturday Session of Conference.

NOTE:  We talked with Elder and Sister Singley, and they support establishing a FH Center in Vientiane, Laos.
