Utah Celebrates Mormon Pioneers Entrance into the Salt Lake Valley


 

On July 24th Utah celebrates Pioneer Day or the Days of 47 which commemorates the entrance of the Mormon pioneers into the Salt Lake Valley. Whatever one may think of the theology of the Mormons or as they are correctly called The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, the trek of the Mormon pioneers is one of the epic journeys of faith in recorded history.

Facing religious and political persecution, the pioneers were driven from state to state and eventually found refuge in the Rocky Mountains. From these humble beginnings, a modern worldwide church has emerged and is now projected in the next 50-100 years at its present growth rate to emerge as the next great world religion.

The following are videos that cover some of the story and background of the pioneers and their trek to the west and also some of the fundamental beliefs of the church.
