“Let us relish life as we live it, find joy in the journey, and share our love with friends and family.” —President Thomas S. Monson of the First Presidency

Young single adults from southeast New Mexico and west Texas attended a YSA regional conference this August.

Young adults traveled from the Roswell New Mexico, Lubbock Texas, Midland Odessa Texas, Abilene Texas, Amarillo Texas, El Paso Texas, and Las Cruces New Mexico Stakes to participate in the three-day event.

Members participated in the conference, held in the Sacramento Mountains in New Mexico on August 9–11. There were more than 150 young single adults present. The theme for the conference was based on President Thomas S. Monson’s talk “Finding Joy in the Journey.”

During the conference, the young adults attended devotionals and got to know Latter-day Saints from other stakes.

They also participated in a service project, workshops, a devotional, and a dance. During the service project young adults were able to help clear the paths of broken trees and rocks to help prevent forest fires and injuries to visitors walking the paths.

On Sunday morning the young single adults enjoyed a fast and testimony meeting. President Robert L. Bray of the Lubbock Texas Temple addressed the group on the importance of temple attendance and how the temple can bless their lives and families.
