> I am a huge believer in active faith, perhaps because faith doesn't come easily to me. I always think that God sends us help in the form of each other.

> I'm a bit rusty on the story of the handcart companies, though I read them just last night. Didn't volunteers from the Utah settlement come back to help them?
Yes, and I think the two young men who waded across the frozen water over and over again carrying people across, later died. How much more could we do for each other? Do we ever create a bridge over troubled waters for others to cross?

>>And my ancestor who stayed at Winter Quarters. His calling while he was there was to help the others along their way. I sort of think of the board that way too. And other opportunities to support. That God sends people our way when we need them. Or that he calls them to help at least. So I feel a responsibility to listen for that call.

Following in your father's footsteps? :)

> I guess I believe in a different sort of angel.

I believe in people angels too, but just yesterday something happened .............and I will never be convinced that it wasn't my dad giving my mom an anniversary gift. So, I believe in both kind of angels.
