FSY in Mexico

 In April the Youth Leaders here in the Villahermosa Region put on a five day Youth Conference called FSY (For the Strength of Youth) in Mexico.  It is like EFY (Especially For Youth) in the United States.  It was held at the Hilton Hotel and Conference Center in Villahermosa.  All youth ages 14 to 18 in our Mission boundaries were encouraged to attend- they had 700 youth attend!  President Haws and I were asked to present a workshop one of the days on The Atonement. We did four, forty-five minute sessions, with about 80 youth per session.  It sounded like a daunting task teaching 80, 14 to 18 year-olds about The Atonement, but it went very well.  The youth were engaged and President Haws had some wonderful teaching examples and stories and an object lesson and I helped by providing a couple of videos that helped to teach about The Atonement and it turned out to be an enriching experience for all involved.
The theme was the same as the 2017 Youth Theme, Ask! or in Spanish, Pide!  The had all the youth put questions on a large board and then on the last day they had leaders answer the questions in a open forum.  The youth of Villahermosa were excited and engaged and many wonderful growing experiences came from this excellent week.  The whole thing was very well done and we were so thrilled to be a part of it!
