A Little of This and a Little of That

Return to Main Menu

While the rest of the world likely relaxed on Sunday, it was a full working day for us here at GC session. So when Monday morning rolled around, several of us (o.k., me) were really confused. Sunday felt like Monday, so Monday felt like Tuesday, and by the end of yesterday (Monday), well, we just didn't know which end was up. But there were still interesting things that caught my eye as I roamed around with my KidsView camera (yes, I have one and it is green!).

Want to see? Scroll on down!

This is 10-year-old Gillian from Michigan. She is visiting the session with her parents and older sister who is working for us as a news kid (they sell our daily magazines around the dome). She said she was having a pretty good time here meeting people and going to the exhibit hall.

I decided to walk the exhibit hall row by row to make a list of all the interesting things to see what might appeal to children. I didn't get very far that day as I had to rush back to the office to take care of something. I will try to get that job done today. But I thought this sculpture in the Loma Linda University booth was a special one. Jesus loves kids. He always has, and always will!

This is a giant paneled screen with tomatoes on it (as you can see). Just imagine what it would look like if you took the panels a part and scrambled them. Pretty neat puzzle, don't you think?

I don't know about you, but I LOVE these dolls. This is from the booth from the Euro-Asia Division. These Russian babushka dolls (or matrioshka, or nesting dolls), were on display there. We have two sets at home and I have always thought they were so cute.

I was walking down a crowded hallway and all of the sudden I heard guitar music. There in corner were these two. It looked like they were working on composing a song together. Goes to show you creative moments strike at any time, so be ready! (Carry your guitar around at GC session and don't be shy to drop a tune in a hallway).

Though there is a very large hall for food service, there are also several good eateries right around the corner from the Adventist Review office here at the dome and congress center. During lunch time, the hallways and tables in and outside them are crowded with people grabbing a bite as they move through the day.

Ellen Poirier (left) is working as our photo editor here at the session. She is talking with one of our photographers, Alden Ho, and going through the many, many pictures that come through our office to be prepared for publication in Adventist Review.

And just in case you were curious about what our office here looks like, here's a glimpse. That nice lady is Kimberly Luste Maran, our KidsView content editor. This office is very different from the one we have back home, but it is a lot of fun to work with everyone here. Though we are very busy, there is a lot of laughter to be heard from us during the day.
