The arrival of churches began to take place at 1pm on July 3rd, 2014. The first church to arrive at the Hotel was St. Paul Assyrian Chaldean Catholic Church from Los Angeles. Following the arrival of St. Paul was both St. Peter’s and St. Michael’s churches from San Diego.
Everyone got a bag which included a green or blue shirt (depending if you were a leader or not), a pair of sunglasses, and a name badge with photo identification. People went to their rooms to clean themselves up from a 6-7 hour bus drive before depaturing to Mar Abraham Church in Scottsdale.
