Hey everyone!  
so I've learned something this week..... when you do your best you get blessed!  Times 10 =)  The Lord seems to be blessing Sister Clegg and I.  We have had so much success that has come with hard work.  We are teaching more than I ever have on my mission.  We had 6 investigators at church yesterday.  We have 4 investigators with baptismal dates in the next 2 months.  It's just fantastic.  I am seeing the blessings of serving a mission.  God wants us to prove our faith and work hard even when it's rough so that he can bless us when we are almost done and have done good work.  So I am loving life right now.  And to make it even better... the sun was out!! And it's been 50 degrees all week! =)

We have been so busy we aren't able to do everything we want to and see everyone we want too.  
On Tuesday we went and saw the Hortons.  Their grandma was stressed out so we took Lane and Sage and the dog for a walk.  It was a lot of fun!  We were jumping over the cracks and lines on the cross walks and the phone flew out of my pocket into a puddle.... oops.  So it got soaked.  And the speakers didn't work =P  So I put it in a bag of rice and luckily it worked the next day.  haha.  That evening we had a lesson at the Vincents.  Mike came and so did the Tophams.  We had a really good lesson about some of the commandments.  I'm so excited for Jerry and Mike to get baptized.  It will give them the added strength they need in their life.

Wednesday we had a great lesson with Sherri.  We were on exchanges so I taught her with my temporary companion, Sister Tyler (From Texas).  It was a great lesson.  We talked about the temple and how she can be sealed to her husband who has past and her son Adam.  She was pretty excited about that.  She is so excited to get baptized that she wants to do it a week sooner!  So it's going to be the 21st instead of the 27th =)  We are excited for her!

Thursday we had to take the Jeep in to get the alignment fixed.  So we brought it down to Nampa at 8 and Elder Short took it to the dealership.  We were planning for it to be gone for like 2 hours.... but we were at the mission office from 8 to 4.  So we were there for 8 hours.  We had a lot of fun though.  And we made ourselves very useful.  We called ourselves the Sister AP's (Assistant to the President).  We organized the material closet, copied, restocked, and helped with some file work.  The office missionaries put us to work.  And we got to go to Costa Vida for our lunch break.  It was a good day.

Friday the elders and us helped the Treats wash their walls and ceiling.  It was pretty gross.  Yellowy brown came off the walls.  I am so glad I am not bound by the habit of smoking... and I never will be!  It's so nasty.  When we were done we went and changed then felt like we should go over to Martina's house.  We walked in and she was in the middle of a breakdown.  Her house was a mess because she just had rude guests over that tore apart her house.  So we were able to help her clean in while she took a breather and tried to calm down.  God sent us over there are just the right time.  

Saturday was a service day most of the day.  We helped the treats again.  Had to go over the walls again because they were still dirty.  Then we painted corners.  We went over to Martina's again too.  Helped her some more.  They were both very grateful for our help.  I love doing service!  We then went to dinner at Garbonzos.  It was a birthday part, feeding the missionaries, blind date dinner... .talk about awkward!!  But the giant pizza was pretty cool.

Sunday was probably one of the best days ever!  Mostly because everyone we invited to come to church... actually came to church!!!  That's never happened to me before.  =)  It was fantastic!  We walked over to the Hortons and picked up the girls.  They sat by us at church and loved it.  On the way home Lane told us she wants to be baptized.  We were like, "Yeah!  We can arrange that!"  haha =)  After church we had a fantastic lesson with the Treats and the Hoopers.  Talked a lot about the atonement and how to quit smoking.  It was great!  Then we had an awesome lesson with Mike.  We talked about the importance of baptism and what his long and short term goals are.  He finally told us that he wants to get baptized.  So we are trying to get him and Jerry ready for the 21st.  We are pretty excited!! =)

That was our crazy week!  Never got a breather.  But that's okay.  It's better this way.  
This week I learned that... The Natural man looks at the failure, God looks at the progress.  Why give into natural man and look at the failure?  Even the tinest bit of progress is noticed by God.  We should notice it too!  So we can be encouraged and strengthened.

Love you all! Have a fabulous week!
