Week of Aug.12 to Aug.17

Monday- Aug. 12, 2013
Sister Harris is in the Pendleton Log School at 12:00 noon until 6:oo pm today.  It is fun to tell the children about the school system here in Nauvoo at the time of the pioneers.  Elder Harris is in the Tin Shop and it is fun to see all the things they make out of tin.  we have a free night so we can do anything we want to.  We are usually so tired that we stay home.

Tuesday- Aug. 13, 2013
This was new and different for Sister Harris because she went to the Tin Shop but she has never served there before so on Monday I took a tour from Elder Harris so I would know how to tell people how to make a skimming pan.  So here I am in the Tin shop and I actually did pretty good for a first day.  It was really neat to see all the patterns he makes to make pans and things. We need patterns in our lives like the 4th Article of Faith says: Faith, Repentance, Baptism, Receiving the Gift of the Holy Ghost and Enduring to the end.
Elder Harris was in the Print Shop, he is so good there.  He knows how to give really good tours they tell me.

Wednesday- Aug. 14, 2013
We went to our training meeting at 8:00 am and then to our sites.  Sister Harris & Elder Harris served at the Pioneer Pastime.  It is always fun there but we didn't have very many come because the tourest have really slowed down.
  The Single Sisters left today, there were about 5 of them.  Their 18 months is up.
   We did the Rendezvous tonight but the Scott's did Noah and Sophia part.

Thursday- Aug. 15, 2013
This was our preparation day today.  I had a hair appointment at 7:00 am and then we needed to buy some food and things so we went to Keokuk.  Nothing exciting happening today.

Friday- Aug. 16, 2013
Sister Harris served at Lucy Mack Smith's home today at 9:00 am  until 12:00 pm then I came back at 3:00 pm until 6:00 pm.  She is a wonderful mother.  The church members called her "Mother Smith".
She was only 4 feet and 11 inches tall but she could hold her own with the men that try to see the "Gold Bible" as they call it.  She really knows how to give it to them and she always testifies that she knows that Joseph Smith was a Prophet of God and the Book of Mormon is the word of God.  In her home she has the steepest stairs of all the site homes. She never could go up stairs because of her bad arthritis.  Her daughter Lucy and her husband Arthur and two children helped take care of Mother Smith.   Their are a lot of great stories to tell in her home.
Elder Harris served at the Brick Shop.  He really likes that site and is fun to tell about then he gives a brick to each family.  They do make bricks  right their in that shop.

Saturday - Aug. 17, 2013
Elder Harris served in the Family Living Center and he does really well making rope.  He worked there at 9:00 am until 3:00 pm.
Sister Harris served in John Taylor's Home.  I just love to share the stories in this home.  It is special and sometimes I feel like he is in his home.  The best story is about the wooden rocking horse.  So dear to my heart that I usually cry as I tell it. You can look in the friend in the past months they tell me it is in there.  Went and did Noah and Sophia this night.  Elder & Sister Harris, they tell us that we did really good the first show and the second show we had a senior moment but it was still good.
