Each conference, what seems now like a very small band of members traveled to the one purpose-built chapel in our stake to listen to conference. This was many years before satellite broadcasts and online webcasts could bring conference directly into our homes.
Born and raised in the LDS Church in England, I remember general conference broadcasts from my youth. In those days, church membership in England was still small; many had emigrated to the U.S. and growth was slow. Utah was thousands of miles away, not only across the Atlantic but also across the American continent, and contact with church leaders was very limited.
