New Adventures - May 3-9, 2015

Hi Everyone,

It has been another wonderful week in Nauvoo!  Some of you have wondered what my schedule is like. Each day I work in a different site. I get to wear a pioneer dress and apron as I share brief histories and gospel messages in the sites. 

I have especially loved sharing the gospel. I had a chance to talk to two preachers last Sunday.  One of them just moved to Keokuk and is really excited to bring his youth groups to see Nauvoo. 

I also had an opportunity to share the Book of Mormon with a lady who came to learn about the Mormon religion. She was from Massachusetts. 

The senior missionaries perform two different shows in the evenings. There are 3 casts, and we alternate performing each show twice a week.  

Sunset By the Mississippi (the sunsets here are spectacular) is a variety show. It is upbeat and lighthearted!  I am tap dancing and singing in it. (You can see one reason it is so funny - with people my age dancing on stage!)


  1. Sounds wonderful! I'm sure you're doing a great job. Happy Mother's Day!

    1. Thanks Christy. Happy Mother's Day to you too.

  2. I love the thought of you tap dancing - one of my favorite forms of dancing. So much rhythm going on there! Sounds like you are staying very busy and are having a great time. Hugs from here!

  3. It is lots of fun Lesli! I even got some tap shoes! The single senior sisters also get to dance the polka with the young performing elders! it is really a blast! Hopefully you'll get to see it when you come out in July.
