The Singing Missionary

Called to Serve
Janet Reynders

I'm so excited and pleased to find out today that my niece, Janet, is going on a mission.  Her mission is unique in that it will only be for approximately four months and she'll be what they call, a performing missionary.  She will be part of the entertaining productions that people see when they visit Nauvoo.  She'll be acting, singing, and dancing telling the story of the Saints that once lived there.  No doubt her testimony will shine brightly.  She'll be gone May thru August.  We'd all love to go and see her in action.  Here's hoping!

"Youth of the Church, the world is in need of your help. There are feet to steady, hands to grasp, minds to encourage, hearts to inspire, and souls to save. The harvest truly is great. Let there be no mistake about it; the missionary opportunity of a lifetime is yours. The blessings of eternity await you. Yours is the privilege to be, not spectators, but participants on the stage of service to others."

President Thomas S. Monson

  1. Wow, what a fun opportunity! My Sarah might love such an opportunity to serve in such a way, send me more info about it. Thanks

  2. Okay, seriously, no one tells me anything!!! It is a good thing I have you to keep me connected to MY OWN FAMILY!!!!!!

    This is velly, velly, exciting as it means I'll probably get to see her a couple of times in the course of the summer, and maybe a few visitors as well. Oh, this is such a happy thing.

    Thanks for keeping me in the loop!

  3. That is so cool! We went there about 10 years ago and I remember watching those young people perform and thinking what a great experience it would be to be a part of that! She is going to love it! I hope you get to go and see her!

  4. Yeah Janet!!! So glad she loves to sing and share her talents. Maybe this should be the year to plan a family reunion in Nauvoo.
