Busy, Busy, Busy

We have been so busy. It has been crazy here in Nauvoo. There are thousands of people here for the Nauvoo Pageant. It is amazing. We are doing 6 shows a week and we are tired. The days meld into each other and the only way we can recognize Sunday is because we go to church. In the John Taylor Home alone we have had nearly 4,000 people tour this home.

I love telling people about John Taylor, his strong testimony of the Gospel of Jesus Christ and his testimony of Joseph Smith as the Prophet of the Restoration and Brigham Young as the prophet who would lead them west. I have had some great experiences lately. A little girl about 8 or 9 came in with her family. As I was giving the tour she asked a lot of questions and they were good questions. At the end of the tour I was mentioning what a strong testimony of the truthfulness of the restored gospel these people had. She proceeded to tell me that she would bear her testimony every Fast Sunday. I said, "Would you like to bear your testimony to us now?" She said "yes" and she turned around and bore her testimony of the truthfulness of the church to those in the room. It was awesome. This is just one of the great experiences I have had.

It's always good to be busy, and busy means happy. You look very happy.

All is well here in sunny, hot and DRY St. George.

We miss you.
