CLEVELAND, OHIO—More than 2,700 members and nonmembers attended the Greater Cleveland Family Conference held on April 29. Speakers at the conference included Elder Loren C. Dunn, President of the North America Central Area; Sharlene Wells Hawkes, Miss America 1985 and now an ESPN television sports commentator; and Cory Snyder of the Cleveland Indians. Dr. Terrance D. Olson, associate dean of the College of Family, Home, and Social Sciences at Brigham Young University, reminded those in attendance that everyone has family connections—mother, father, sister, brother, spouse, or children. He said that the quality of our family connections depends on our ability to do what is right and to remember that what we do affects future generations.

GAIMAN, ARGENTINA—Missionaries of the Argentina Bahia Blanca Mission went door-to-door and invited the entire city to family home evening. Gospel basics were shared with everyone in an effort to introduce nonmembers to the Church. Seventy-five percent of those attending were nonmembers.

QUATRO BARRAS, BRAZIL—Young people from the Curitiba Brazil Stake found community service the most rewarding part of their recent youth conference. The young men and women cleared a large field in a small city nearby, then planted more than 150 trees as a service project.
