I met this man from France who was hitchhiking across the United States looking for "pilgrimages," and thought Salt Lake City would be a good place to stop by. While he was there, he happened to run in to a family on a very special pilgrimage of their own.
This group came from the small island of Tubuai, Tahiti. Tubuai was the first foreign language speaking mission in the church, and also became the first foreign language branch of the church. All this happened in 1843, three years before the saints even got to the Salt Lake Valley.
This group coming to temple square was descended from those original converts, and this was their first time ever leaving their island. Their pilgrimage to hear to prophets speak inspired me, and it inspired Alex (the French hitchhiker). He said, "we all have a pilgrim within us." It got me thinking, what's my pilgrimage? Where am I aiming to reach, on the gospel path?
