THIS WEEK HAS BEEN EPIC!!! I cannot believe that this transfer is half way over! es loco! we found out at one of our lessons that before we started teaching one of the young women we teach that she would listen in to the lessons we were having with her less active mother. she is very shy but she would crack open her door and stand and listen where we could not see her or she would sit in the hallway, she is so amazing and she has one of the most amazing spirits. it is amazing how the people we are teaching are prepared by the lord, and i have seen so many times people who i never thought would listen to us, and their hearts have been softened. it is when we are teaching their family or friends and then they will slowly listen in and become more and more involved it is so great to see the spirit of the lord working! This week we went through all the old progress records and we had to go through many but to find a few that we are very excited to visit one of them was really progressing but then moved to peru for a little and said to come back in a few months and it has been way past that time and i dont know why we havent visited or found that record before now but i hope we will be able to find her! oh! also we got a referral from salt lake and she is incredible and wants to learn more and be baptized! it is amazing! we only talked with her for maybe 10 minutes but she is prepared and i am so excited to go back and to teach her and her daughter! also we have been trying to find a man named oscar for a very long time but he is very hard to find because of his schedule so we go at the probably perfect time to find him but instead we find his cousin who we have never met and who we didnt even know live there with him and we taught him the plan of salvation on the spot and he came to church with us the next day on sunday it was incredible and he is planning on coming back to church next week and staying for the full three hours i am so excited to start teaching him! i love this area, it is amazing. it is gold. me and hermana gaines say this everyday. also that we love this mission. really it is so blessed. and there are so many people that are prepared and so many people ready to teach. i know there are so many more people that we still haven't found yet but we are too busy with the people that we are already teaching! but we have been scheduling in some more finding so hopefully we will see fruits of that soon! but yes this week has been fabulous! there is much more to do! and so little time! also our ward mission leader is amazing, he is the greatest and is so involved and helps us so much i love everything about this area and this branch and i didn't even realize how great it was until now. I love the people here it is going to be so hard when i get transferred but i am always up for a fresh start so everything is great! scripture for this moment is in Isaiah 49:16 that says "Behold I have graven thee upon the palms of my hands; thy walls are continually before me." Jesus Christ will never forget us. We are all a part of Him. A quote I read today that i loved was forget all the reasons why it wont work and remember the one reason why it will. The reason is Jesus Christ. He will never forget us He is always here with us as long as we will have the faith and remember Him. When it is hard and you hurt, remember Him and remember the pains that He has felt for us. I love my Savior Jesus Christ I know that the power of His atonement and sacrifice is real and is our only hope, I have seen it change lives and the gospel of Jesus Christ is the only thing that can bring true and forever lasting happiness. And I am so grateful.
LOVE LOVE LOVE, Hermana Egan
