I'm right on Main Street, so it's about 2 blocks in different directions to the Visitors' Center, the sites, the Pageant grounds, and the Temple.
I was able to conduct the choir today, and it sounded beautiful. Tomorrow I will be back working in the sites! I have really felt isolated the past few days, so it will be wonderful to get back to work!

I have struggled with feeling inadequate as the new choir director. The old one was so good. After the meeting I must have had fifty people tell me how beautiful the choir sounded. I felt the Lord's loving reassurance that I am doing exactly what He wants me to do - and He will help me.
I have been pretty sick with the Nauvoo Crud the past few days, so I'll include more details and pictures next week when I feel better. Here's the temple from my new house.

George Durrant and his wife, Susan Easton Black
Durrant, have returned to Nauvoo and are doing a series of wonderful historical lectures for the missionaries.
I was released as mission music coordinator and called as choir director. I felt pretty overwhelmed at first, but I know the Lord will help me. Here are the flowers I used this morning at my first choir practice as a visual aid to remind us all of the beautiful results of all working together.

We had a farewell breakfast for 10 missionaries who are going home (see picture). They are wonderful and we will miss them. In 2 weeks we will have 30 new missionaries. By May we will have about 90 new missionaries, plus 24 young sister missionaries and about 40 young performing missionaries, so things will really be hopping again! I will be moving to a different house also in a couple of weeks. So maybe it's good I don't have much going on at the moment.
