Regan and I got to help with with our church's youth conference. The theme was past, present and future. We just helped out with the past, which was the pioneer trek part. There were stops along the trail representing different placing that the pioneers went through to get to S.L.C. Our spot was Fort Laramie/The Pony Express. We had letters to give the youth from the Stake Presidents.
I admire the Saints for all that they went through to come to Zion. What strong and courageous people they were. This trek reminded me that I need to have more faith in my Heavenly Father that I need to be more grateful for all that I have.

Our cool youth.
Cool experience.

Looks like fun, I think we should make all teen agers walk form St. Louis to Utah it would be good for them. Regan looks pretty excited about the lunch.
