ALTD and NITD co-hosted the Tres Dias International Assembly, held in Rockford on July 10-12, 2015.
The parade of banners, representing over 30 Tres Dias communities around the world, opened the 36th Annual Assembly. The theme of the Assembly was encouragement, based on Hebrews 10:26, "Let us consider how we can spur one another on to love and good deeds, encouraging one another."
Some of the highlights:
• Four new banners were present at the Assembly – Northern Illinois Tres Dias, Treasure Valley, Kansas City, and Colorado Front Range
• First time attendee from the community Holy Seed in Seattle (Charles Huh) came
• Kyiv, Ukraine was represented by Lesya Pasichnyk
• Prayer coverage was provided for the 72 hours of the assembly, represented Sat. night by the hosting community presenting a prayer scroll
• The silent auction of the six sock monkeys generated almost $600 for the Tres Dias Fund to help new communities
By the numbers:
93 present 116 present (+24%)
42 delegates 49 delegates (+16%)
51 observers 67 observers (+31%)
35 communities 34 communities (1 fewer)!
All in all, the assembly was a raving success.
