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.
ISAIAH 55:12

Week 15

hola buenos dias!
this week has been another great week! the time is going somewhere and i dont know where but it is going mighty fast! i cannot believe that this transfer is almost over and i am getting sad already that i could be leaving this area and also that i probably not be with these hermanas anymore. i love them so much and this has been an incredible transfer so far. i have learned a lot and a lot has happened. this week was definitely a roller coaster and we had the most up and downs i think i have had in my mission so far, but mostly i am grateful for prayer and for the scriptures! my testimony of the book of mormon grows every single day as i read it. without fail, i recieve exactly the answer and strength i need at the moment i read it. in this area the church is so strong and so there are many opportunities for great missionary work and growth because the members help out so much, but along with that there is lots of opposition. where there is a lot of strength is where satan is also. the extremes i have seen so far on my mission has been really clear and pretty crazy. there is a lot of support here and at the same time many people who are extremely anti and it has been very interesting and i am very grateful for the opportunity that i have to serve these specific people at this time. My testimony has been strengthen so much through the opposition and through the experiences we have each day that the people will challenge or mock us, these are the moments i am most grateful for and some of the most powerful experiences i have had with the holy ghost. This quote is what i read yesterday and have i have been thinking about the last couple of days. 
"Don't give up what you want most in life for something you think you want now." 
-Richard G. Scott
to me it is about the natural man. and how in each moment it is a choice to give in to the natural man or to take a step closer to christ and to choose what i want to become in each moment by living that way. I invite you all to start today and make a list of things that you want to stop or change and pray for the strength to improve in these areas and focus on that thing or things this week. I know that as we turn to Christ there is strength and we will be able to do the things we cannot dream of without him. I love my savior Jesus Christ and I live for him and because of him. I know that this is his restored gospel and there is no more joy than in this.
que tengan un buenisimo dia! 
con muchisimo amor,
hermana egan
