Short List

Eagle Mountain West Stake

2008 Youth Conference

“When thou art converted”

Daily Schedule Short List

Day 1 “When thou art converted”

8:00am Reenactment: Youth arrive at Stake Center (or other local site). They discover a tower being built. The youth are engaged in helping to build the tower. Characters circulate among them encouraging them to build the tower higher so that the “top may reach unto Heaven”, and so that we might “make us a name”. (Gen 11:4)

Activities the Youth might participate in could include:

1. Making bricks
2. Hauling bricks
3. Laying bricks
4. Mixing mortar
5. Providing water for the workers
6. Create your own trail mix

9:30am The voice of the Lord is heard (Gen 11:6-7). Foreign speaking missionaries suddenly start speaking in different languages.

10:00am Jared & his brother gather the youth together and they board the buses. The buses then become the Jaredite barges. (It would be best if the windows were covered somehow to make the interior darker.

Discussion: Inside the buses, the youth are joined by characters to express their concern (some may be crying and others moaning due to the waves). Others are telling stories of faith from Genesis and about the Brother of Jared having seen Christ. Still others share their testimonies that God has preserved them for a special purpose and about the land they are going to as they heard about it from the Brother of Jared. (Ether 2:7, 9, 10, 12) They sing hymns.

During the bus ride, the youth can:

1. Sing hymns
2. Have a snack
3. Bear testimony of how God has blessed them, led them and preserved them from harm
4. Watch a video (if the bus has that capacity)
