User Reviews

Not a pilgrimage like it in history...
19 September 2011 | by sinimasykoSee all my reviews

Job well done. This is a timeless story of a truly faithful and dedicated people who believed fully in their trek to the Mormon "Zion". It doesn't matter what faith you belong to, (or don't for that matter)to appreciate the sacrifice and suffering of these people. These progenitors laid a foundation of faith for offspring that are still basking in the light of the Gospel of Jesus Christ due to what they endured. I am one of these, and my heart swells with love for these people. I only hope that if I was asked today, what they were asked then, that I would answer the call with a heart full of that same faith that they possessed. Their documented stories prove that the Lord watches over all his children, and will, and DOES intervene in our lives. For this I am truly grateful, and forever faithful.
