It is my privilege to share my experience about YSA Conference held at Bangalore.
Bangalore is close to my heart and I love the city. Soon after joining the church I had attended my first YSA conference at Bangalore. As a “Missionary” I often attended Zone Conferences held at Bangalore on my mission.Missionary
I loved the theme of YSA Conference, “For Where your treasure is, there will your heart be also (Matthew 6:21).” This theme helped me focus more on Eternal Marriage. I have set my heart upon Eternal Marriage (Treasure). The workshops were wonderful and inspiring. I loved Gospel Culture Vs Traditions of Fathers, Role of Holy Ghost, Be in the world but out of the world and Self reliance workshops. The best was Gospel Culture Vs Traditions of Fathers .This workshop uplifted me with commitment to follow gospel culture leaving behind the traditions of forefathers.For Where your treasure is, there will your heart be also (Matthew 6:21)
I had great fun attending YSA Conference and had opportunity to mingle with other latter day saints from Chennai, Coimbatore, Bangalore and other wards of Hyderabad Stake. I really love the way, the Lord works with his chosen servants. We had a special meeting for ages 23 and above where leaders addressed concerns about dating and marriage. This meeting helped me to overcome my fear of talking to Latter-day Saint women at Church.
This would be my last YSA conference because I have a goal to marry in the Temple in 2016. I’m eternally grateful for the restored gospel of Jesus Christ that has given me infinite happiness in my life. I believe any person who has this gospel in their lives have temporal and spiritual blessings abundantly. I know Heavenly father lives. Jesus is the Christ who has atoned for our sins. I know Book of Mormon to be true word of God. I know blessings will come as we are obedient to God’s commandments. I share these, in the name of Jesus Christ .Amen
