We Love Our Mission!

From Brent and Laurie McMillan
Serving in Wyoming, USA

Hello from the Wyoming Mormon Trails Mission!

We are here at the 6th Crossing of the Sweetwater for a 6-month mission, and the time is flying by.  For the first 2 months, we prepared for the 21,000 trekkers that are arriving now almost every day. We are very busy helping with treks that follow the National Historic Trail route.  We will help with the Rocky Ridge treks also which begin soon.

Helping at our new visitors center is another assignment we enjoy. This big beautiful log structure was just dedicated on June 15th. This spring was the highest water year ever recorded for the Sweetwater River. There has been water and mud everywhere to trek through!

We love our mission, and feel it is such a blessing to walk where the pioneers walked, and share the stories of the handcart companies. It is also inspiring to be with the youth trekkers and their dedicated leaders, and to be serving our Savior as missionaries to help the kingdom of God roll forward in these latter days.
