I am grateful for my pioneer heritage. I've been able to learn more about their stories this past summer. Their conviction to make sacrifices for their children to grow up in the light of the gospel of Jesus Christ is powerful. I have pioneers that joined in the early days of the church all the way to the late 1950's. Their lives strengthen me to continue on the path that they set before me.
I am grateful to know them even though I haven't met them.
