When I got to the storehouse at 8:30 in a cab, I found that everyone else had beaten me there and after prayer and for the next hour and a half, it wasn't busy at all. We ended up cleaning, reading Church literature, and talking about how we wished it were busy so we could help people.
Blessings come to those who ask...
Suddenly, we were blessed to have a small sea of patrons come in and helping people kept us busy and it was absolutely wonderful; missionaries often thrive when they forget themselves and go to work as helping hands of the Lord.
We ended up being busy until 12:20, but it was totally worth it to stay late and help the people who came in late because they really did need it and they were so grateful that time was taken to fulfill their needs and care about not only their situation, but also about them as valuable children of God.
Seeing the relief and joy that patrons express when they are helped is worth every bit of hard work involved in this mission.
