Members of the Africa Southeast Area have suggestions to gain the most from conference:

Prepare before conference:

            -Mark your calendar with the dates of conference. 

            -Arrange your schedule to be available to view conference

            -Ask for time off work, if necessary

            -Invite others to come with you to conference

            -Read scriptures regularly with your family and individually

-Use Family Home Evenings to learn to identify members of the First Presidency, and Quorum of the Twelve Apostles.  (May and November Liahonas have their pictures)

          -Each of these leaders will speak at conference.  Watch for them.

-Write down specific questions about concerns in your life.  Listen for answers to those questions in conference.

-Pray for the Spirit of the Lord to be with you during conference.

Following conference:

            -Read and reread the talks and apply them to your life

            -Make goals in harmony with conference teachings
