Temple & Family History Work

Yes I have helped my dear friend and encourage & helped a few others in the branch with Temple and Family History. When we entered the temple on this day President Pulsipher said, "When I see you I always think of the Andreason's".  I said, "I will be sure to let them know.  There are lots of smiles and whispers and reverence in this the temple.

While visiting with her mother on the side, our Sweet Little 7 year spent 15 minutes at the desk answering the phone many times: "Hello this is Sister Hoopes Speaking! How may I help you?  What is your name?  Our phone number is:  37634 48331 248 553 0405 888 537 5627.  Okay Sister Hoopes is gone now"  She said this knowing we are leaving soon.

This Brother was invited to show us his possession of an 1830 publication of the Book of Mormon.  He spoke also of how he helps to arrange for art at the BYU Museum of Art.

The book  received from his father.  Someone in Michigan was cleaning their attic and  found this Book of Mormon.  He called our Brother's father and asked if he would like to have it.  His father asked who was the printer of the book?  When the man replied it was printed by the Grandin Press, his father said, I'll be right over and get it.
