Bishop Leavenworth said when he was called to be the bishop, he knew that the youth needed to go on a pioneer trek for their Youth Conference. He and the bishopric worked really hard to make this a great experience for the kids. They put the kids into the "families" that they felt would help them most. Unfortunately, for whatever reason, many of the youth did not choose to go. Brooklyn's family consisted of three young women and the ma and pa. I couldn't believe these girls would be pulling the handcart without the help of more males.
During the pioneer trek their is a "women's pull." This is reminiscent of when the men were called away to battle and the women were left to continue on the trek. I joked with Brooklyn that her whole trek would be a women's pull.

I am so proud of Brooklyn. She always has such a good attitude and is up for anything. She is not a fan of camping, but she does like to hike and loves the outdoors. I am grateful for her desire to be obedient and to commit to whatever is asked of her.
