We celebrated along with other missionaries in other zones our pioneer heritage on July 26th. We started with a devotional and had some missionaries share stories of their ansestors who were among the early saints. Then we had some missionaries tell about how they were pioneers because they were the first in their families to join the church. We had musical numbers and showed a video clip about the young men who saved the Willie-Martin saints from crossing the Sweet water River's frozen waters, at the cost of their own health and well being. We made the correlation on how they are also doing a magnificent work in placing their own desires aside to serve and "save' their brethren.
Afterwards they changed into their P-Day cloths, played outdoor games , had hamburgers, chips, watermelon and fruit drinks!
We are all.....Pioneers
