How to Prepare for Trek




Letter from Trek Programs Committee- 7-5-10

Hello wonderful Pioneer Trekkers!

As you're packing and preparing for Pioneer Trek this week, we wanted to give you some "background music" you might enjoy.

Here are suggestions you could consider downloading for your MP-3 player and listening to today and as you get ready through the week.

Michael McLean (LDS songwriter) said:  "Life should have a soundtrack!"  So here are some pre-Pioneer Trek "soundtrack suggestions."  If you like them, maybe you could put them on a CD to play in the car as you carpool down to Pioneer Trek. :)  (We know you're leaving those i-pods at home, but then you'll have music as happy memories when you come back home after Trek). 

If you find some more music to share, please email back to RoseDDall@aol.com so we can try to post them on the website for everybody. :)

Have a great week, and we can't wait to see you at Youth Conference!
