Young Single Adults Conference

We are Family’ a profound phrase was the theme of this year's annual (YSA) YOUNG SINGLE ADULT CONFERENCE, which was held at the Spanish Town Chapel on October 19, 2015. In attendance was over 250 young single adults who were proud to be a part of the day’s festivities which were put in place for them to reflect on Christ and appreciate having the gospel and each other. The purpose of the theme was a reminder to all the attendees of the importance of having a family.

The activities for that day were centered on joining each other and forming bonds of unity. Some activities we had were playing family feud and other games, services projects such as making care packages and toys, and cleaning the community where the chapel is located. There were also talent presentations from various wards and chapels. The most inspiring part of the day was the spiritual devotional. They were reminded of the importance of having families and finding eternal companions with the basis of a strong foundation of consistent prayer, scripture study and family home evening. “By small means the Lord can do great things” President Deans. To finish the day the attendees enjoyed an amazing dance party.
