When you hear the word 'pioneer' you might think of the early saints who journeyed across the plains to settle the Salt Lake Valley.
However, 'pioneer' refers to those who lead the way. That means you can be a pioneer as you stand for your beliefs, lead by example and most importantly follow the Savior.
Elder Dallin H. Oaks has said, “The days of the pioneers are not past. … In every nation, in every worthy occupation and activity, members of this church face hardships, overcome obstacles, and follow the servants of the Lord Jesus Christ as valiantly as the pioneers of any age.” (Read, watch, or listen to Elder Oaks’s full address.)
How are you a modern pioneer?
