As modern pioneers, we are creating a heritage of faith for those who will follow us. How can I build upon the legacy of my ancestors? How can I be a modern pioneer? From Salt Lake City, Elder Ronald A. Rasband of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles answers these questions as he relates the inspirational story of one of his pioneer ancestors. Whether we have pioneer ancestors or are the first modern pioneer in our family, Elder Rasband encourages us to continue in this sacred heritage built upon the faith and teachings of Jesus Christ. What moved the pioneers on? What pushed them forward? he asks. “It was a sure testimony of the Lord Jesus Christ. I did not pull a handcart across the plains. But as the great-grandson of pioneers, what they felt, I feel. And what they knew, I know: that Jesus is the living Christ, the Son of God. I love Him. This is His Church.”
