Anybody wanna parse this for me?

Heard in sacrament meeting, from a teenager who’d just participated in one of those horrible, horrible “Trek”* things:

    And i really gained a testimony of my ancestors.

That was it—it didn’t tie in to anything that went before (despite the “and”), it was a complete sentence, and there was no further explanation. It just makes me wonder what in the world “testimony” means to Mormons nowadays, anyway.

* And i promise a really good rant about the idiocy of those one day.

I was forbidden from going on trek because they couldn't allow me to eat when the other kids couldn't. And so due to my hypoglycemia diagnosis I was excluded from Youth Conference that year. I've always been secretly glad. I think Trek is heinous.
