For archival purposes, the conference was not as we had planned.  On the way to the conference, we learned that Dr. Ray had a passport issue and was not able to travel.  After a flurry of phone calls, we managed to get Father Stephano Penna to speak on Saturday morning and afternoon, and Bishop Fredrick Henry spoke on Saturday afternoon.  Thank you to both speakers for answering our call in the time of need so that our conference was able to maintain its reputation for having top speakers.
