Starting in 1856, more than 3,000 members of the Church pulled handcarts across the plains to the Salt Lake Valley. The journey was hard, but the Saints had the faith to keep going. Elder Parley P. Pratt (1807–1857) of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles said of the travellers, “Their faces were much sunburnt and their lips parched; but cheerfulness reigned in every heart, and joy seemed to beam on every countenance.” * The words hidden in the word search have to do with a handcart journey. See if you can find them all.
