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 17


Buenos Dias! this week has been wonderful! and especially yesterday! it seems like everything i write about is from mondays but maybe that is just because it is fresh on my mind or mondays are always just great or maybe because of the expectation and the choice to make them that way! anyways, there have been incredible experiences this week as me and my hermanas have decided to more fully consecrate ourselves. people who we have been teaching since i have started my mission have kept commitments and have desires to follow christ and to be baptized! i am so happy for them! two of the people we teach set a date the same day actually at the same time too. we were actually at three lessons at the same time it was incredible! i wish we were this booked every night. but each of us hermanas went with a different member and taught different lessons. it was one of the coolest lessons of my mission. and it was the first time that i was on a split by myself when the lesson was in spanish i had done it before but it was in english and it was also with the ward mission leader so it was exciting. luckily the daughter in family knows english so she could translate if i needed it but that is the thing that i didn't! i was so happy! this is why the lesson went so well because i had to rely on the spirit completely and it was so great! the family is so prepared and spiritual and the greatest sweetest people ever! oh and then also one night this week we were teaching a family and we had found out that they have nothing and no food and we found out what they had been eating and it is so sad. so we knew that we will have to get them food because we have food everyday so we are making all the plans of what we will give them of everything of ours that is not open and to pray that the members we have dinners with give us fruit from their gardens or food that we can also give to the family. we also found out that several other families we are teaching are in the same situation. when we walked home that night there were two huge garbage bags full of apples on our doorstep. we gave them to the families the next morning! it was such a blessing from God we were so thankful and so happy it was one of the best nights we have had. i cannot believe this transfer is almost over the time is flying by! On my mission I think I have had some of the most sad moments in my life but I know that I have also had the happiest moments in my life. It has definitely been an adventure, but I would rather be doing nothing else. There is no greater joy than seeing the light and happiness in these people that i love and seeing the changes in their lives and mostly in themselves. We are so excited for general conference! We are inviting everyone we meet! and I invite all of you also to listen to the prophet and apostles on october 5th and 6th 10am-12pm and 2pm-4pm you can watch it online atlds.org. I know that we have a living prophet today, Thomas S. Monson, the same as Adam, Noah, and Moses. God has told us through his scriptures that whether by his voice or the voice of his servants it is the same. I know that Thomas S. Monson receives revelation for us today and we speaks with God and is a messenger to us. I am so excited to hear the words that God has for us in this next week. Invite all your friends it is going to be incredible! 
Love Love Love, Hermana Egan
