For ye shall go out with joy and be led forth with peace:
the mountains and the hills shall break forth before you into singing
and all the trees of the field shall clap their hands.

Week 12


hi hi hi hi! this week has been so awesome! and the new transfer starts tomorrow! i am staying in logan with hermana mejia and we are getting a new trainer hermana gaines. i will miss hermana rickett so much she was the best thing but i am very excited for a new transfer and a fresh start! 
anyways, this week has been great! one of the coolest things is when one of our investigators who has been in jail just got out and messaged us on facebook right when he was free and told us he is coming to church with us on sunday. this is such a miracle if you even knew this person. He is so awesome and very smart and he knows the bible and he has a lot of problems with churches and stuff but they all line up perfectly with the gospel and it is pretty cool that this really is all the answers he is looking for so we taught him a couple times before he got caught for jail but he always said he hates church and everyday bad comes from church and that he will never never go to church so it is amazing and i don't know what happened while he was in jail but i cannot wait to talk to him he is so cool and i think he read the book of mormon! 
anyways also yesterday we met the nicest sweetest cutest family from spain and they invited us in and wanted us to eat dinner with them but we had already ate and so they just postponed their dinner for an hour while we talked and they just wanted to talk more and more and they were so nice. The parents are very catholic and the dad knows everything about the catholic church and is super super nice and really cool and super open to talk to us we talked about all the differences and we taught the restoration and the coolest part was that there teenage daughter has been going to the lds church and she went to efy last week and and she was answering all of the questions and she was beaming when she was talking about efy and church and it was super cool. they are going back to spain in a month but we are so excited to teach them before they do! I love being a missionary it is the best thing that has ever happened to me and i love all the people that we meet everyday. I think the Lord has definitely blessed me with a better memory because if we meet 50 people that day i remember them all and there names and the people i met in the first weeks that i talked to once and then meet them again way later i love to remember their names and show them that i care about them because i really do! i just love all the people and being a missionary that is another gift that comes i think is to see the people more how heavenly father sees them and just appreciate what it is that they have. I know that Heavenly Father is guiding me everyday I know that he guides all of us and he is involved in our lives, he is always there, and he always wants to help us, I know that he has a plan for us, and when i dont understand why something isn't going the way i planned it he has a better purpose in mind and he knows what is best and that the people are being prepared. I love this gospel of Jesus Christ. I know that is has been restored and we have a living prophet today. I know that we can return to live with heavenly father and jesus christ and live together with our families after this life.
con mucho amor, 
Hermana Egan
