Jammed-Packed with Heaven

What a week that was jammed packed into 7 days! Speaking of 'jammed-packed' did I ever tell you that Sister Clayton (Wife to Elder Clayton in the 70) said that Temple Square is jammed-packed with Heaven? I just love that expression, especially now that the Temple is open again. Everyday on Temple Square is just another day in heaven. 

But, lets get back to the mission business....

This week we had lots of tender mercies happen with the work. First of all it's been raining, we have been getting little bursts of rain for about 10 minutes each day and then the rest of the day is sunshine and heat! But the 10 minutes of rain is heavenly. 
We also had the miracle of actually doubling the number of our investigators who actually picked up the phone this week. And yes that is a major miracle, you would be surprised how many people in the world don't like to answer their phones.
One of our investigators in particular who we met on the square probably the first week that I returned from Georgia finally made it to church this week. It's been quite a funny thing, basically all of our lessons with him have been over text messages because he is working as an intern and so his work hours are pretty much all day every day. But he has been reading the Book of Mormon and praying about it, and we even invited him to be baptized over a text message and he said that he would if he found out it was really true! Anyways, this last Sunday he was finally able to make it to church and he loved it! He met the missionaries, scheduled an appointment with them and even now wants to go to a ward activity this week. The power in church attendance! We both had been praying with so much faith for so long that he would make it this week. It's wonderful that Heavenly Father loves His children way more than us missionaries do-so He always makes it work out in the end. 

Well I know that this is super short this week, but that means everyone will have the time to read it right :)
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend and don't forget that pioneer day is this Friday! Even if we don't have pioneer heritage by blood, as members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints we all are apart of the legacy of the pioneers-it's our legacy now. I hope that you all are as proud of that legacy as I am!

P.S. I lost my hippo fact book...that's why there isn't any hippo facts now. Sorry!
