    Nancy Dibelius - coordinator of the Upper New York Conference's Day of Prayer on April 23 - has made 20 sets of prayer beads on behalf of the Conference, which will be given to delegates at the 2016 General Conference session, May 10-20 in Portland, Ore. Since the deadline to receive prayer beads for General Conference is April 30, these beads will not be prayed over during Day of Prayer, but will be prayed over before they are mailed.
