Salina Stake Youth Trek 2015
Trek Theme
Covenant in the Cove
One of the primary spiritual underpinnings for many of the early Pioneer Saints was to immigrate to Zion as soon as possible so they could be sealed to their families and make covenants in the Temple, the House of the Lord. The 1,300 mile trek by handcart was only a portion of their journey; it was the covenants they had made and the covenants they hoped to make that gave them the motivation and drive to push towards Zion.
