July 1, 2015 – July 8, 2015 – Week 17, in Nauvoo

July 8, 2015

As you know our mission call said we would be serving as Illinois, Nauvoo Visitors Center missionaries.  This coming Saturday, the 11th, is the first time we have been scheduled in the Visitors Center – our hours were to be 5:00-9:00 p.m.   Well our cast made plans to go to dinner that night in Bonnepart, Iowa with an Amish family that specializes in serving dinner to groups.  So Sister Stroud, who does the scheduling, managed to get two Young Single Missionaries to work for us.  We are now rescheduled to work day hours on Saturday.  Hopefully we get an opportunity to serve in the Visitors Center soon.

Last Sunday we went out to Carthage to take pictures of the Jail and Visitors Center there. 

Elder Couch, one of our Senior Missionaries helped put on a new roof on the Jail, and he saved the old original timbers that had to be taken down, and made picture frames for all of us.  We decided we needed a special photo to put in it.

Elder Ray and Sister Barbara by the Statues of Joseph and Hyrum Smith in Carthage - the jail is behind us.

Above is the jail with part of the Visitors Center showing on the left.

This is the shaded entrance to the Carthage Visitors Center.....

We travel a portion of the Great River Road along the Mississippi every time we go to Keokuk, Cathage, or Quincy.  This time we stopped and took a picture of the Arched Stone Brige - below...

Here is a new picture of our home on Knight Street with the lawn and trees green.   To the right you can see the sign we have in our front window designating this as the home of Elder and Sister Doying.....
