General Assembly

After we left Alaska, we traveled to Orlando Florida for General Assembly. Dennis was an NYI Delegate and Denise was a General Church Delegate. It is great to be part of a global church. In the NYI Convention, they web-cast the convention to 7 different world areas and included delegates in the convention and voting who could not travel to Orlando either becasue of finaces or visa/passport problems. This is the first time their voices could be heard. In the General Convention, they elected a new General Superintendent for Africa, the first from outside the US.

We also worked at the Extreme Mobile, the exhibit booth for Extreme Peru. It is an 18-wheeler trailer that is divided into 3 bays with videos that tell about Peru and the work we are doing there. Dennis decided to use his mascoting skills and put on the RICO cuy outfit and strolled around the convention center meeting people and having fun with the kids. He had a blast.
