We got back from Singapore on Saturday afternoon. Monday morning we headed up the road to the YMCA for the Persidangan Remaja Daerah Sibu, or in other words the Sibu District Youth Conference. The kids and leaders were there for three days and two nights. The shirts were designed by us and our son, Josh. They each got two shirts. The maroon shirts are in Malay, and the white shirts are in English. We found the 2015 YM/YW theme and logo, and applied to Youth Conference. We had two themes: Called to Serve and O, ye that embark in the service of God, see that ye serve Him with all your heart, might, mind, and strength. that ye may stand blameless at the last day.
There were all sorts of activities and classes, including music directing, how to teach the Gospel, morality, and a scripture treasure hunt. Each youth and leader was given their own copy of Preach My Gospel. Time was provided on Tuesday and Wednesday mornings for personal study on specific concepts in Preach My Gospel. There was a special Hold to the Rod experience one night which ended at the Tree of Life. And of course, there were several games and activities. All in all everyone had a good, spiritual experience.
Between me, Elder Mills, the Tedrows, and David Kong, I collected over 800 photos. There is no way that I can post that many so I've taken about 300 of the photos and put them into a video with music that I've posted to YouTube. We hope to show it to all the participants in the near future.

After Youth Conference we jumped right into Christmas. More about that in the next post.
