June 24 – July 1, 2015 – Week 16, in Nauvoo

July 1, 2015

All the sites closed at 3:00 the afternoon of the 27th so we could all go to the Martyrdom Commemoration at at 5:00 p.m. at the Historic Carthage Jail Visitors Center.  Joseph and Hiram Smith were killed in Carthage Jail on June 27, 1844.  They had a wonderful program of music and remarks that touched our hearts and brought tears to our eyes more than once.

We are still getting lots of rain with lightning and thunder, but so far no damages here - only some outdoor plays have had to be moved from the outdoor stage into the Visitors Center theaters.  We did have a tornado warning one night which had us all on edge as we were doing one of our plays.  The hardest rain went around us and we had a pretty rainbow and a colorful sunset.   

The firefly’s are out in abundance now, along with the chiggers and mosquitoes!

The Gardeners (Facilities Managers) have put out lots of pots of flowers as well as beautiful gardens filled to overflowing.  One of the flower beds above and one of the large pots in the Visitors Center Parking lot to the right.....

There are many colors and varieties of day lilies blooming everywhere.  Here are a couple by the Family Living Center...

Nauvoo is a beautiful place to serve, and the Spirit of Joy accompanies all our activities.  We are so happy to be serving the Lord and wish we could convey to you the Spirit of Nauvoo!  Just come and find out for yourselves!
