Here is a photo I took at the closing exercises of Women's Conference on April 30, 2004. 
This shows only about 2/3 of the sisters who attended hoping be inspired, uplifted and most of all to help those in need.  It was amazing and empowering.  Normally there are about 18,000 women in attendance.

Some of the projects sisters worked on Thurs. night - making teddy bears, knitting leprosy bandages, cutting fleece for blankets, putting together kits, edging hankies for moms who lose babies, and more.

Here sisters cut out 20,000 yards of fleece that participants of EFY (youth) will tie into warm blankets to be distributed in communities across the country.

Humanitarian Aid Worker, Sister Glenn explains here how she needs books with magazine photos and words written in, for various humanitarian projects.

I was told they are in need of little 'brown' dolls.  So many people send white dollies which are wonderful but they need brown skinned for the millions of little ones who receive them who are brown skinned too.
