On Saturday was spend another day listening to messages at the conference. The conference went on all day. We ate lunch and dinner in downtown San Antonio. We enjoyed the messages. Vision Forum now sells the messages from the 200 year plan conference. You can buy them here:

200 Year Plan Conference

Sunday

The church service for people attending the conference was held in a hotel San Antonio. Mr. Phillips preached a message on the family table, which he did not have time to do Saturday. After the service, everyone was invited over to the Phillip's house for the afternoon. We went, and fellowshiped with people who where at the conference.

Monday

On Monday we drove around San Antonio looking for a place where Daddy could buy a new cowboy hat. He could not find a leather one like he wanted. Then we drove and found a bookshop in San Antonio which we went to. We got some books, and crammed them in our bags. We where supposed to fly home that evening, so we went to the airport. Our plane to Dallas was delayed because of storms, but finally we made it there. Daddy had a business meeting the next day, and we were supposed to fly home, but because our flight was delayed, we did not make it in time for our flight to RDU. We decided to stay the night in Dallas with Daddy, and stay there for the business meeting and leave the next day with him, rather than get home a 1 a.m. of later. We got a rental car, checked in to the hotel, and went to dinner with Daddy's employees.

Tuesday

We left in the afternoon, so in the mean time we did some things in Dallas. We went to a park and some stores there. We picked Daddy up from his meeting, flew out and arrived safely home that night.

200 Year Plan Conference: Friday

Friday was the day that the conference started, but it did not start until after lunch. We got up in the morning, and had a good breakfast at the hotel. It came with the room, and there were pancakes, bacon, eggs, potatoes, omelettes cooked to order, fruit, and other things. We enjoyed it a lot. We went back to the room, and Daddy and I worked for a little bit, until we had to leave to check in for the conference. We drove over to the downtown, and parked in a parking lot. We walked over to the Empire Theater, where the conference was. It was a very neat building. On the bottom level there were round tables and chairs. The upper mezzanine, had normal theater seating and had a very good view of the stage. Above that, there was another level, which was the balcony. It was very high up, and the seats were very steep. They did not want small children up there because it was dangerous, and no one was allowed to sit up there the second day. We sat on the mezzanine.

After we checked in they made us leave for an hour because they needed to do a final audio and video check. We left, and, because we were so full from breakfast, we went over to a hotel that was near and got some pastries. We went back to our car and got our bags. Then we walked back to the Theater, and waited to be let in. There we saw the Perch family, some of our friends that we had not seen for a long time. Their son Jordon was baptized the same day I was at our church. We enjoyed seeing them and ate dinner with them that evening.

Soon they let us in, and started the first message. It was an introduction by Doug Phillips. He spoke on things including the vision and limitations of the conference. Then Mr. Bodkin did a message called Introducing the 200 Year Plan. One interesting thing that he said was that we need to raise up militant sons, who will fight for God. Then there was a time of Q&A, and then we were sent out for dinner.

After dinner we came back and Mr. Phillips gave us Seven Secrets of Multi-Generational Visionaries.
He spoke of some things that are necessary to have in your multi-generational vision. In the evening Mr. Bodkin gave us several examples of multi-generational visionaries in history. After these messages we were very tired, and everyone went to bed.

200 Year Plan Conference: Thursday

Recently we went to the 200 Year Family Plan conference hosted by Vision Forum. The speakers were Doug Phillips and Geoff Bodkin. It was at the Empire Theater in San Antonio. We arrived on a Thursday, and left on a Monday. We got up early in the morning on Thursday, and flew into San Antonio with a layover in Dallas. We got there before lunch, and ate lunch in downtown San Antonio and then went to the Alamo. We learned about how the men defended the Alamo against Santa Anna, and how they were all killed. One interesting thing that we saw was Davy Crockett's rifle, powder horn and other equipment which were on display at the Alamo. One interesting thing that we learned was that the distinctive curved top of the Alamo was added after the battle by the United States government. This was very interesting.

After going to the Alamo, we walked around downtown San Antonio, but did not go to the Riverwalk. We went to a little toy soldier store, but did not buy anything. After walking in San Antonio, we went back to the hotel, which was near the airport because the ones in the downtown were very expensive, and got settled in. We went to dinner with one of Daddy's employees and her husband that live in Texas. We met them at a restaurant in a shopping center called the Rim. It was a Mexican grill restaurant, and it was very good. After dinner we went home to get a good night's sleep, and get up in the morning to go to the conference.
