Abby left for the Pioneer Trek this morning and will be gone until Saturday. The youth in our church wear pioneer clothing, cook simple meals and sleep as the early pioneers would have and travel with handcarts for miles throughout the mountains... no treats, no cells phones or electronic items. They are allowed to take just the basic minimal items to carry. Nothing more. They will work & play hard and have a great time just being together. We miss her already but are thrilled she has this opportunity to strengthen her testimony and gain an appreciation for the many sacrifices that the early pioneers made to bring the LDS church to Utah.
