Trek Prep Devotional - Justin & Catherine Yeates
In April conference Elder Scott gave a talk on bringing peace into our homes. As it has been pointed out in previous devotionals, some of the youth that are coming on trek may not have that peace in their homes or lives. What a wonderful opportunity we have to help them unplug from the world and tune-in to the peace and love that only Christ can bring (John 14:27). This will be a challenge for many of the youth and some will surely resist. Emulating the Savior's patience and love will help soften the rebellious hearts. Elder Scott said, "Recognize the good in others, not their stains. At times a stain needs appropriate attention to be cleansed, but always build on his or her virtues."
I recommend this talk in our preparation, so that we can gain our own, personal insights on how to best bring the Spirit to our trek families.
