Whose Jersey do you wear? & Giveaway Winner
“The FUTURE of this world has long been DECLARED; the final outcome between GOOD and evil is already KNOWN. There is absolutely no question as to who WINS because the VICTORY has already been posted on the SCOREBOARD. The only really strange thing is all of this is that we are still down here on the FIELD trying to decide which TEAM’S JERSEY we want to wear!”
― Jeffrey R. Holland
Our Bishopric Youth Committee decided to use President Hollands quote to come up with our Youth Conference theme.
“Whose Jersey do you Wear?”
We decided to stay local with a 2 day Youth Conference and only one night overnight. We utilized homes, cabins, pools & media room that members had offered to us.
9am- Morning Side
With the YW President & YM president going through our theme and the meaning, how we are all on the same team and how we need to be kind to one another and help each other.
We had a inactive member take us repelling
We talked about the importance of communication & being aware of our surroundings
One of our goals for Youth Conference was for our youth to get to know each other better and have fun doing that.
We had everyone bring a sack lunch from home
1:00pm – Head to Pool
3:00-4:30- Watch “Forever Strong”
4:30-5:00- BBQ Dinner
The wonderful priests in our ward cooked for everyone
5:30-6:30- Service project
Weeding a friends garden
Take Youth home by 7PM
9:00am- Breakfast (Cooked by the bishopric)
10:00- Head to Pine Valley
11:30- Geo Caching Activity
based off of President Uchdorf talk
This activity was a very good demonstration on how big a difference even 2 degrees is
1:30pm- Skit in a bag
Our boys are not big on skits, but I was pleasantly surprised with all of them participating.
3:00- Faith Walk
4:00-Letters from Home (those who have played on the team before us- like in Forever Strong)
4:00- Go to cabin
5:30- Guest Speaker Mike Christenson (played for University of Utah under Coach Urban Meyer when they won National Championship and Fiesta Bowl)
Mike talked about playing on a winning team, talked about how we all made the same choice in the pre existence.
How much time do we spend in the play book- the scriptures- how do we use it- do we follow it, look at it here and there.
How much time do you communicate with the owner (Heavenly Father) of our team? How often do we go to the training facility (the Temple)
It was great.
7:00 Testimony Meeting
It was a great Youth Conference
