John Rounds from the Arizona Mission Center created a set of dramas similar to scripts from the 2016 reunion materials. These dramas are about a character named Alex Wake (or A. Wake to match our theme this year) and John has offered to share these with the church in case other reunions would like to use them. Download them here.
