-Pioneer Trek

What a life changing experience our youth got to have. Three days treking and wearing pioneer clothing, NO electronics and all their stuff had to fit in a 5 gallon bucket. Taylor, Ashley & Mark Kels sawing away. They did lots of pioneer activities. One was cutting head off the chickens and skinning them. They had a dance, testimonies and speakers At one point the Pa's & boys left the Ma's & Young Women to go to war. The girls were left to pull the wagons up a rocky hill. Ashley & Kelsey LOVED IT!!
Ashley's group with cousin Cassidy.

What a great experience. I wish we could have done that when we were their age. A big testimony builder....I am glad they were able to go. Craig looks like he fit the part too. How special Shelli!
