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 48

Today was transfers and me and Hermana Vergara are both staying the area! We are so happy! I love this area and our investigators! We have 2 who will be baptized in a couple weeks and I love them so much! On sunday we went to salt lake for a regional conference with one of the apostles, Neil A. Anderson, and we had two investigators there! They loved it and were able to see salt lake after! There is a returned missionary in our ward who helps us a lot and he has helped us to improve our teaching a lot. I have learned so much I feel like I have just started being a missionary but then you can see how far you have come and realize that must have taken time. I am so grateful today for the scriptures, for the prophets who have written them, and for all the people who have sacrificed, even their lives, so that we can have them in our hands today. They are sacred and they are god's words to us. I love the scriptures. God talks to us through his words. God has given us so much. What a nice life we have here.

Week 47

Next tuesday is transfers but considering i was 9 months in logan i think i will die here so i feel pretty safe but you never know. The white people here keep telling me I have an accent lately. One said I have a hispanic accent and some say it is from pennsylvania who knows but it is pretty funny. This sunday we have a regional conference in Salt Lake City and we are so excited because our investigators are going to come and we are going to show them temple square and the christ and everything! yay! also everyone in the ward is talking about giving the whole area to us! We are gong to be so happy! right now there are elders here to in the north but our president and ward mission leader says that everyone wants the sisters and not the elders so they are going to call president so they can get rid of the barrier of areas and we will have it all! who knows if that really happens but wooooo that would be so great! hermana vergara is hilarious we are always laughing it is so fun! i love it here! last transfer was sad a lot and lots of crying but this transfer has been fun and funny! we have really funny investigators we love them so much! the only problem is two of them didn't come to church so they lost their baptismal dates we are going to push them back because we do not feel they are ready so that was really sad because they were both going to be baptized this saturday but we will need to give them new dates. anyways everything is great here in clearfield time is going by so fast it has been so crazy this transfer was a day. I LOVE BEING A MISSIONARY! and easter was great i love the holidays because the people are always more willing to hear about Jesus. I know that He lives and because of Him we can all be free and happy! 
Love, Hermana Egan

Week 46

It is so fun to be a missionary! But we actually have no time today oops! so this will be very short! This week we found an awesome new investigator! He used to be a little gangster he told us but he wants to change his life and he is willing to change and learn more! He is so great and we are so excited to teach him! When we went to visit Jose we found out he was smoking which is so sad but we know he can do it but he only has 4 more days to make it to his baptismal date to be a week clean so we are praying a lot for him but he is our favorite person ever! We have been doing tons of finding and finding lots of great people to teach! All the hard things that we do and that happen to us are for our experience and will be for our good! How good to know I read that in the scriptures today! The scriptures are so good we should all read them even more! They teach us everything! and they speak to us and were written for us!

Week 45

Conference was so great! I loved it! We had an investigator who was going to come to a session in salt lake and we had tickets but they cancelled the night before we were so sad so we didn't go to salt lake but we planned to watch each one of the other sessions at a different investigators house and they all cancelled except for one and the one that didn't cancel is a single man so we were bringing a woman with us so we could go in and the member cancelled so we couldn't watch it with him. but the great thing was he watched it on his own!!! we were so happy and he loved it! I love this new area this transfer is going by so fast and there is so much to do! Yesterday we met the most awesome and prepared person ever her name is micah and we taught her the restoration of the gospel of Jesus Christ on her porch and invited her to get baptized on the 29th of april and she said yes! and she was so excited! me and hermana vergara were so amazed after it was crazy she is the best person ever! the only thing is we went to her house because the neighbors told us they were hispanic but she ended up being polynesian but we taught her and the elders were super happy! so that is great! sometimes people run away when they see us coming here it is a little funny and a little sad. This is something that I loved from conference:
Truth is always opposed. Why did they not let Jesus alone? Because He is the truth. I was thinking about Jesus The Christ and all the outrageous things that happened to our Savior and they stand as a testimony of Him. We can use the opposition we feel and the temptations as a motivation because We know that it is the adversary and that he is trying to rob us of the truth. I loved it.

Week 44

HOLA QUE TAL. This week has been fantastic! and I am starting to love this area as we are finding more and more people here! These first couple weeks we have been working a lot with the members and last week we met with a returned missionary in our ward who was an AP in his mission and who wanted to help us. He was great! after he helped us we had tons of ideas to find more people and i was so excited! We decided to go through the list and do every single thing and we knew that we would find if we did. Now we are a good ways through the list and we have already found a few solid investigators! We are so excited! Yesterday at the dinner we shared the message with the family and asked who they had in mind during the lesson. The mom told us a name of one of their neighbors and later the mom got up and left and the dad came and then he told us the same name seperately. We decided we better go to that house in that moment so we went right after the dinner and the young women was just getting home at that time. We taught the lesson and invited her to be baptized and she accepted a date for april 26th. Her mom is a recent convert and she says that she wants to be baptized because she has seen the change in her mom. She is super ready and prepared and she wants to come closer to God. We didn't do anything it was such a miracle! and I am so thankful for inspired members! I love the members! and I love spanish! Hermana Vergara helps me so much and I feel more confident in the language then ever before! She is a great helper and companion! Another one of our investigators came to church on sunday! He is old and can't hear very well. During the sacrament he asked me very loud in english "what is the bread for?" and you have to yell to talk to him. he also asked during a song really loud in english, "you can read in spanish??" it was very funny. He speaks both english and spanish but he says he prefers church in spanish. He told us he likes church and is going to come every week. We keep meeting great people who are ready to hear the gospel and there is not enough time in the day to teach them all! We are super busy. that is how i like it but it sure is a vida loca. You should read Doctrine and Covenants 19: 15-20. I know that the atonement of Christ is personal. In order to experience it, we must have courage. Once we have repented and are baptized there is no greater joy then to know that we are made clean through our savior and that we can make it back to our Father. 
Les Quiero a Todos!
