Activity description: We practiced interpreting a map and reading a compass, then planned a five-mile hike we could complete on our next campout. We also reviewed the story of Lehi receiving the Liahona as a gift from God. We compared the Liahona to the gift of the Holy Ghost, which guides us on our journey through life. When we have faith and are obedient, the Holy Ghost can be our constant companion.
