Once again, it's the yearly post where I say that I will not/do not/have not/will never discuss religion here on the blog, however we do attend a yearly convention and due to the fact that our family all lives a few states away, I do post pictures from said convention.
This was a special year for many reasons, but especially because Seattle was having an International convention (missionaries serving in other countries get to attend these special conventions and the host cities "take care" of them with a few weeks of special activities. They are happening all over the world this year).
Seattle's convention was the same weekend as ours at the Cow Palace in San Fran, so we were able to be connected into their convention to watch and hear some of the special talks that were taking place.
We also got to hear and see them singing songs, which was special, as well as the conclusion of the convention Sunday afternoon. There were many signs expressing love for these delegates, lots of cheering and tears.
For Brian and I it was extra special to be tied into Seattle, as our families were attending that convention, so we got to hear the same speakers, and sing the same songs at the same time, get to see newly released books and brochures at the same time, and on occasion, cry at the same time.
It was just an amazing convention all around!
