Elder and Sister Harris had to speak in Sacrament Meeting today. Their were two Temple Missionaries that spoke before we did. We all talked about "Repentance". I talked about the Hidden Wedge and I had several people want a copy of my talk. Sister Scott said that she wanted to send it to her brother because he has a hidden wedge in his life. Another Temple Missionary wanted some of the quotes I had gotten from Pinterest. It was scary but turned out to be a good day. We didn't have to conduct the Priesthood and Relief Society today but we do it next week. We are also in charge of a Sociable Sunday February 23, 2014. So we ask Sister Ballard if she would organize the program. The topic is about Carthage Jail and Visitor Center.
Here is a picture of Sister Ballard. She is a great help and does a great job in everything she is asked to do. We are showing how cold the jail is without a furnace. This is the only picture I have of her to show what she looks like.

We had our Training Meeting today by President Jones. It was about reading scriptures every day and he gave us the scriptures to read. All the Missionaries had the same schedule of reading scriptures. It was great to read the scriptures and discussed with our companion what they meant.

These two days were moving days. We packed up the rest of the things in our home and moved them to Nauvoo.
This is our bedroom at the house in Carthage. It was a small house but we enjoyed it.
This is in the bedroom.
We spent all day Friday, 14th - 2014 cleaning our home in Carthage. It is a big job because they want you to clean the curtains as well as all the windows pulse the walls that are dirty. Dust everything and vacuum and mop all floors. Clean all the wood work around the doors and all the closets. Clean the whole bathroom including walls and floors. Here is the front room as we walked out the door.
Here are some pictures as we say good-by to the house, Carthage Visitor Center and Jail.
