Welcome to Our Website
We’re so excited to share our experience attending the International Convention in Quito, Ecuador in January, 2015.
We know most of us cannot attend an international convention – especially in a foreign country. We never imagined we’d get the privilege. And it was even more amazing than we dreamed it would be. So we wanted to share a little of our experience with your family. This website contains a lot of photos and videos – but we hope to give you a little taste of this beautiful country, our amazing worldwide brotherhood, and the joy of attending an international convention.
This 12 minute video is an heartwarming closeup overview of the convention. It features the El Inca Congregation, which is our family’s congregation. Be sure to make it go full-screen to best enjoy it.
