Stories of conference: Mormons gather from around the world

Though deployed overseas with the U.S. Army in Musul, Iraq, Bryant Marchant was able to attend general conference sessions with his wife, Jenny, and their eight children via Skype voice-call connection on the Internet.

While watching the conference sessions, the family had their father present with them via laptop computer.

"I am in an area where the Internet connection is fast enough to allow us to Skype, but not fast enough to watch the streaming conference broadcast on the Internet," Brother Marchant explained in an e-mail to the Church News. "Throughout my deployment using Skype has allowed us to stay connected as a family regularly with family prayer, scripture study and weekly family home evenings. We are so grateful for the technology that exists today that allows us to communicate and stay connected in this way." — R. Scott Lloyd
