Week 84 Photos #3

And last, but certainly not the least are the photos from the Surakarta Stake Conference (Konferensi Pasak Surakarta) held on Saturday and Sunday.
On Saturday evening, between sessions, food boxes were provided for all of the attendees of leadership and the adult session.  Like we've said before, tables are unnecessary.  These sessions were held in the Soepomo building.

The Sunday session had to be moved from the Novotel Hotel ballroom where we've held it in the past.  Apparently a Christian service or activity of some sort was held in one of the hotels in Solo, and a Muslim group disrupted it and the police would not intervene, so the hotel, acknowledging that they could not provide sufficient security asked that we have conference elsewhere, so we ended up here.  It was not as large and the AC left much to be desired!!!  However, it was just across the street from our apartment.
