I am a missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I have been called to serve in the Massachusetts Boston Mission! I love my Savior and this church and I am so excited to share the gospel with God's children in the Boston area.

Life Is Good
Life is good here in Glastonbury!
We have had quite the busy week! A lot of things were happening and we have another big week ahead of us! Tuesday was our Pday and we met up with the Zone and went bowling and mini-golfing. It was so much fun! I was completely TERRIBLE at mini golf! But it was fun to be with the other missionaries! That night we went and met with Gwen and Will. Gwen is getting baptized on Saturday, so we have been preparing her for that and getting everything all planned! We were able to answer a lot of Will's questions- it was just a really good lesson!
On Wednesday, we met with a few Less Actives and introduced them to Sister Owens. My favorite was Sister Rivers- I love her! (She is the one with the gross kitchen we have been cleaning :) She has had a pretty rough life. But I can see how much the gospel has helped her. She is a convert of about 20 years. But even since we have been meeting more regularly with her in the last couple months, I can see how much she has changed. She is more slow to anger and frustration and is actually smiling. The gospel does allow us to change, in fact, it causes us to change. We also had Book of Mormon night on Wednesday. Sister Owens is a PRO!! She took the lead and made it the best Book of Mormon night yet! It was awesome!
On Thursday we went and did service for Bill and Joyce. MORE LEAVES. New England is just full of never ending leaves. They are everywhere! But it was fun to zoom around on the golf cart and dispose of the leaves in the forest! We also went to a RS activity that night- they talked about all the fun things to do in NE. Some are local- so we will be able to do some of them on pdays! New England is just full of amazing things!
Friday turned out to be a really good day! After District Meeting we planned on contacting all the Sisters in the ward that aren't assigned visiting teachers. No luck! Nobody was home! But we were driving and we passed by a former investigator's house. Sister Ross and I had stopped by a couple times but he was NEVER home. This time I felt like we needed to stop by. So we did. And Eddy was home! We talked with him for a little bit and then I pulled out my scriptures to share a verse with him, and my book just fell open to a verse about praying. So I read it. And afterwards he said that he wanted to learn how to pray! So we taught him! It was a really neat experience! He is our new investigator and we will be seeing him this week! Friday was full of miracles.
On Saturday we went to South Windsor Cares Day. It was a service project put together by one of the YM in the ward for his Eagle Project. It was very well organized and it was an awesome project! There were probably 100 volunteers and we were all assigned different homes to go to and do yard work and just help out. It was very successful and we have a couple of referrals from it!
HAPPY FATHER'S DAY to the best Dad around! I am so thankful for his example of service and hard work! I hope he had a wonderful day!
Thank you for all the love and support! It's going to be a busy week this week!
Love, Sister Egan
