What a week! I can't believe another week has come and gone!
This turned out to be a lot of fun! On tuesday we set a baptismal date with our investigator from Ghana. His name is Dominic! He came in contact with the church a few years ago, but it wasn't until Sister O'Keeffe contacted him online that he was really interested. We taught him the Restoration my first week here, and then this last week we were able to have a really solid lesson with him. Throughout the whole thing both of us felt like we needed to set a baptismal date with him. We Set March 26th as his date. He went to church and absolutely loved it. There are definitely miracles that happen in the digital mission. It is very fun to be able to teach people from around the world. Who knew that when I got called to Boston that I would be able to teach Dominic who lives in Ghana?
On Friday we had a crazy day! Our Zone Meeting was planned and we had a skype appointment beforehand so we got to the church building pretty early. There was a lot of snow on the roads because of a huge snow storm that was coming in. So we drove really carefully on the way there. We had a good lesson, and then right when we ended the electricity went out at the chapel. We didn't know what to do! There was another set of sisters and 2 sets of elders who had come already for Zone Meeting. But the snow got a lot worse, so they ended up cancelling Zone Meeting because the driving conditions had gotten worse. But we were stuck at the chapel! To get to this building we have to drive down a pretty big hill, and with all the snow getting out was a different story. Our cars don't have all wheel drive and they weren't able to make it up the hill! So we decided to PUSH! It was a team effort and we finally got all the cars up the hill! It was SO much FUN!!! So that was our adventure for the day!
We were able to teach primary on Sunday and that was so much fun. The lesson was on the importance of Christ's birth. As we were preparing for the lesson, I was really pondering and thinking about how important the birth of Christ is in my life. Jesus Christ is my everything. Where would I be without him? HE knows my struggles and trials. He has been there and wants to help me through my uphill battles. Of course, we cannot coast uphill. It will be a battle no doubt. But this journey uphill is the path we must take to Become like our Savior. I am so grateful for my Savior. I have a testimony of the Book of Mormon. I know that it is true. I know that what we read in that book can apply directly to our lives. It was written for us.
I love you all! I hope you have a wonderful week! Thank you for all the love and support!
Love, Sister Egan
