A Personal Invitation from the Stake Presidency


Dear Youth of the American Fork Utah West Stake,

This year we will be holding our pioneer trek on June 27-29, 2019, at Muddy Creek, Wyoming. The trek route includes a portion of the original Pioneer Trail, where you will be able to see artifacts and graves from the original pioneers who sacrificed so much for the gospel of Jesus Christ. We hope you will experience the Spirit of Elijah in your lives as you get to know an ancestor better, participate in indexing, and make your temple worship more meaningful. 

As you do so, you will be blessed by our Heavenly Father with a stronger testimony and understanding of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. You will come to have a greater appreciation for your ancestors and experience thoughts and feelings that will touch your heart and change your life. This will be a memorable, spiritual experience; something you and your families will talk about and treasure for many years to come. Please join with us in this exciting opportunity. 

Sincerely, the Stake Presidency

President Jeff Rich             
President David Day
President Derick Woolf
