What an exciting week! February 5-7 has been the Exodus Commemoration, honoring the Saints crossing the Mississippi on their journey to the West. The original exodus began February 4, 1846 and extended clear till September when the last of the Saints were forced out at gunpoint.
There have been many presentations and banquets this week, with visitors from all over the country. Saturday morning was the re-enactment, and it was really powerful. I was on the program and presented a reading with two other elders.
