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 31

we dont have very much time because things are closed for the holidays so we all need to share but yesterday such a miracle was given to us we have been praying to find new families and new investigators because we have just dropped a lot of them that have not been progressing and we have found so many people! every single day we find at least three new investigators everyday we arent really sure what to do with all of them!  but anyways yesterday was so amazing!!!! there was a car a couple days ago who were just rolling down their window and talking to us because we are missionaries and we asked them if they knew where any hispanics are and they told us a few apartment numbers so we knocked all of them and none of them answered (thank goodness so that we could get to the last one) and the last door we knocked was the cutest most amazing family from puerto rico. the mom is so amazing and she is a professor at utah state. oh my goodness as soon as we met them we knew that they were super prepared to hear the gospel. the mom is super educated and so nice and she has such a strong testimony of christ and god already! she is amazing! then she told us about the vision she had when she was in puerto rico which is the reason that they moved here. she had a vision and there were the letters of utah in big letters spelling it out and they were shining so brightly white then she heard a voice that told her to ask her husband if they should move here and when she asked him he felt a burning in his heart of happiness. the spirit was super strong. we told them that we knew that god has sent them hear to utah to hear and find the truth. to find his one true church and we taught them about the restoration. when we invited them to be baptized they said that they already were but we told them that it was not valid because they did not have the authority or the priesthood it was so incredible! and it was so amazing oh my goodness we were so happy after this beaming of joy. heavenly has blessed us so much. his children are ready to hear the gospel! and the baptism of miguel was so great he is such a good spirit. after the baptism he kept saying how good he felt over and over again! everything is so happy! I love the gospel of Jesus Christ- The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I know this is the kingdom of God and earth and that it is the only true church which the fullness of the gospel.

  1. Hi Hermana Egan, this is Nicole's mother-in-law, Nancy. We just returned home from a 23 month mission 3 weeks ago. What an amazing story you shared about the family from Puerto Rico! And to think that you are instruments in God's hands in teaching them after they were guided by God to come to Utah. We certainly learned from our mission that the Lord is preparing many to recieve the Gospel. What an amazing mission experience you are having! Love and hugs to you and your companion.
