Trek Prep Devotional - Brian Bingham

For, for this intent have we written these things, that they may know that we knew of Christ, and we had a hope of his glory many hundred years before his coming; and not only we ourselves had a hope of his glory, but also all the holy prophets which were before us.
I was recently struck by this verse from Jacob. The lives of the pioneers, their decisions to leave everything but a handful of belongings stacked in a primitive handcart, and strike out across the barren wilderness are, in a sense, what they have "written" about their testimony of Christ. I can imagine those pioneers repeating the above verse declaring that they did what they did so we would know they knew of Christ. As we prepare for Trek, and as we work with the youth, I hope we each develop a deeper appreciate for the Savior, and demonstrate through the small sacrifices we make in time and effort that we also know of Christ.
