This recording opens with prayer and singing, including a song of “happy birthday” to Mother Dell. A man welcomes the conference and asks people to tithe, and the choir sings multiple songs. Dell talks about the women’s day program, and presents H. Jenkins Bell. Bell talks about the state of the church, and how music is so important in the church. He talks about the importance of convocation, and how that the church must be strong together to get through a turbulent world.
