The theme for the Conference is Who Is My Neighbor? with a special emphasis on the question, So how are the children? Each of us has been given an assignment of asking a child or teenager one or more of the following questions, and bringing the answers with us to the Conference:

What is the best part of your day?
What is the least favorite part of your day?
What makes the kids in your community cry?
If you could change something about this world, what would it be?
If you could change something about the church, what would it be?
