The theme for our conference was “Seeing With God’s Eyes,” based on 2 Kings 6:8-23. Pastor Matt Olson spoke about seeing and mentoring individuals; Pastor John Pethtel encouraged us to see the need and the harvest; Pastor Andrew Samuels taught about seeing with eyes of faith. Conference President Ralph Mackintosh gave us details about the coming Conference session, brought the morning message on Sabbath, and entertained the church and community with a Gospel-based illusions show.

Our many thanks go to the Shiloh and Marlboro church members for the wonderful way they hosted us! Thank you for encouraging your pastor to attend.
