May 28 – June 3, 2015 – Weeks 12, in Nauvoo

June 3, 2015

Wow, the weeks are flying by!  And we are still moving along.
Richard traveled from Indianapolis to visit us the last week end and it was wonderful!  It was so wonderful we forgot to take pictures of all of us.  We hope to do better next time!

Friday night Richard got here early enought to see us in Sundset by the Mississippi. 

 In the opening and closing numbers Elder Ray and Sister Barbara are together, singing "Hello Everybody....."
the Elders sing "Act Natually"...


 ....the Sisters sing, "Oh Be Joyful" and dance and sing "Jubilee."
All of the branches of the Military are honored and Ray is honored to carry the
U. S. Navy flag.  
Saturday night we had two Rendezvous shows and the audience at the second show was very kind and gave us a standing ovation.  Our director came out at the end and told of the ovation – she was pleased and so were we.   We always stand outside after each performance and meet the audience as they come out.  That night a lady from our audience came up to us and told us how good we did and how much she enjoyed the show.  Then she said, “I felt what they must have felt” and that is what it is all about.  We portray what those long ago saints did, and though sometimes in a light hearted way, we hope our audience will catch the spirit of how they felt and how they coped with everything.  Their faith in Jesus Christ was strong, and that helped them endure much.  I was so pleased to get conformation that we are reaching them.
The Brigham Young University Young Ambassadors are here in Nauvoo for a couple of weeks and we got to see their show last night which was just after our Sunset on the Mississippi show.  They are performing Heartsongs, Melodies of Love.  If you would like to know more about them, go to: and you will find a link to “BYU Young Ambassadors perform in Nauvoo.” 

The website: tells about the pageants that will be here in July and August.  Come and see them, and visit with us while you are here. 
The productions that we Senior Missionaries are in, Rendezvous in Old Nauvoo, and Sunset by the Mississippi are going well, and they can be seen every night except Sunday – Elder Doying and I are in one or the other of them four nights each week. 

We really do more than dance and sing, like serve in the many sites around Old Nauvoo where we teach and invite, and are enjoying everything, especially having ice cream at Annie’s some nights after our shows.
