Spring is finally coming to Nauvoo. The Cardinals, Red Winged Black Birds, Blue Birds, and Robins are out. On one of our warmest days, I got some pictures of a squirrel in his tree. We are getting a lot of rain. We have had a lot of visitor's lately. There are people here on Spring Break and for weddings. I have been in the John Taylor's home. He was the 3rd President of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. He was also with the Prophet Joseph Smith when he and his brother Hyrum were murdered. It is so much fun to show his house and talk about his testimony of the Gospel. That is the most rewarding part of the mission, giving people the tours and telling them about the faith and determination of these early saints. When summer hits we will be so busy we will not have time to even eat or breathe. I love sharing the testimony of these people and my own.

Glad to hear it. We understand the winters in Nauvoo can be very cruel. Proof in the pictures you previously blogged with the icicles hanging from the car bumpers. Glad to hear you're enjoying yourselves. We think of you all the time.
