Lasso Your Partners Race
Materials: 2 hula hoops
Directions: Divide the boys in two different circles. Each circle does the same thing but separately. Have the boys hold hands with the boy on either side. Break each circle in one place and hang a hula hoop on a boy’s shoulder/arm, and then reattach the circle. The point of the game is for the boys to see which group/circle can get the hula hoop back to the beginning point first by lassoing all the boys in their circle the fastest. Each boy has to work his whole body through the hula hoop and pass it to the next boy and they can’t break the circle or let go of each other’s hands.
Note: They have to work together to lift and lower bodies while one player is trying to get his head and arms through a hoop or step his body through the hoop.

The faith, courage, and determination of the Pioneer Saints carried them through cold, hunger, and the deaths of loved ones. William Clayton was called to be in one of the first groups to leave Nauvoo.   While on the trail to the Salt Lake Valley, William sat down and wrote “Come, Come, Ye Saints,” and the famous lines expressed his faith and the faith of the thousands of Saints who sang in the midst of adversity: “All is well! All is well!” They, like the members who have followed them, found the joy and peace that are the rewards of sacrifice and obedience in the kingdom of God.

Scripture: 1 Nephi 3:7

7 And it came to pass that I, Nephi, said unto my father: I will go and do the things which the Lord hath commanded, for I know that the Lord giveth no commandments unto the children of men, save he shall prepare a way for them that they may accomplish the thing which he commandeth them.
