Happy Pioneer Day

Today, in addition to think about the early Mormon pioneers from the 19th century, I've been thinking a lot about the new converts (modern pioneers) we've met from Central Asia. It's always amazing to think about these individuals. One was converted as a direct result of his participation in the 2002 Winter Olympics. Several others were Muslim before they joined the Church. They have some difficult paths ahead of them, but it strengthens me to talk to them.
