Reflections on Trek - A Reunion Event
Hopefully all of you are planning on attending the upcoming Trek Reunion activity. 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 youat our reunion activity!
