Reflections on Trek - A Reunion Event

October 19th , 6 – 9 PM at the Bellingham Stake Center (2550 Thornton Road, Ferndale, WA 98248). All youth, Ma’s, Pa’s, Company Commanders and Trek staff are encouraged to attend. Dress is nice, Strength-of-Youth casual. There will be a unique Trek program and a good opportunity to rekindle the spirit of Trek.

If anyone would like photos from Trek we have several in a Dropbox folder. Contact me at for access. There are more photos than we could fit in the Dropbox so we will also have a a table with equipment to transfer photos to a thumb drive. Please bring an empty thumb drive to the event if you would like photos. The entire collection is over 40GB so be prepared.

Hopefully all of you are planning on attending the upcoming Trek Reunion activity this Saturday. We are looking forward to connecting with you all and reflecting on our shared experiences. As part of that event stake leaders are preparing a photo slide show that we would like to juxtapose with brief testimonies and reflections from Trek. I would like to invite each of you to take a moment to reflect on your trek experience:

How specifically did an experience from Trek strengthen your testimony of Christ?

What was one time your felt particularly close to the spirit or to your family on Trek?

What is one poignant lesson you learned from the spirit on Trek?

How would you summarize the value and purpose of Trek?

In going through this exercise with youth and adults they have often responded with "I know what I want to share".  If you are up for the challenge I would like to invite each of you to record your reflection/testimony into a audio file on a computer or handheld device, this should be a 30-45 second clip! Be concise!  The easiest way to do this that I know of is to use the voice memo function on the i-phone, I am sure other devices have a similar app, once you are happy with your recording, you can share the audio file via an email attachment. Send a single polished reflection to: 

I cannot guarantee that all files will be included in our final product, but we will endeavor to include all of the testimonies and reflections from those who take the time and effort to share their experiences.  Our hope is that this compilation of testimonies along with images from Trek will be a great reminder and of the spirit we felt at Trek. We look forward to sharing it with you this Saturday at our reunion activity!
