Postscript (This notice to the Hope PRC, Redlands congregation was placed in their bulletin of August 10, 2014):
The Lord graciously answered our many prayers for His blessing upon our Young People's Convention of this past week. A safe, exciting, and spiritually enriching week was enjoyed by all. All of the congregation's work in planning, organizing, and hosting the convention was noticed and appreciated by many. A hearty thanks to all those who faithfully served in so many different ways to make this convention a wonderful event for all who attended. May God be pleased to use the instruction that was given on "Living in the Last Days" for the glory of His name and the strengthening of all our young people in their faith and walk.
From all that we heard about this YP's Convention, we may certainly echo these sentiments. Thank you, Hope PRC!
