"It was such a testimony-strengthening experience and helped me appreciate the sacrifices made for us."
- MATS Student
This annual travel study program is a rendezvous with the American past and its people. Students study on site where American history was made and where LDS church history and doctrine may be felt and testimonies strengthened. They come to appreciate as never before the Restoration and Mormon heritage in the context of American events, culture, and ideas.
