Convention Reflections

My husband and I had the opportunity to chaperone on the Junior Campus at the 1992 convention sponsored by Faith PR Church. We had done this previously about 10 years ago and still enjoy pleasant memories and lasting friend­ships as a result. Chaperoning a convention can educate one as to the emotional state of our […]
