A Lot of Miracles

Hello Everyone!

This week was really good! We had a lot a lot of fun and saw a lot of miracles! 

I think one of the highlights for me this week was Thursday. We picked up a new investigator named DeeDee. She is amazing! We have been trying to meet with her for a couple weeks and we were finally able to set up a time. So we went by and everything just felt natural. She has so much faith already and she is truly searching. She was in an accident a while ago and she feels like she was given a second chance when she was able to heal fully. We were able to share scriptures from the Bible as well as the Book of Mormon that confirmed her faith and she is really interested in the fact that we have a modern prophet on the earth. We talked about how she can know all this is true through sincere prayer and study. She is excited to continue to meet with us. It was awesome! Sister Demuth did a great job at relating to her and getting on her level to help her understand the Restoration. I have such a wonderful companion! 

On Friday we had our District Meeting and that went well. Sister Demuth and I gave the training and we talked about our purpose as missionaries. We discussed different people in the Book of Mormon that truly fulfilled their missionary purpose, like Abinadi and Ammon. Both of them were so different and unique in the way they taught. We too, have been called to find our friends and touch people that only we can touch. We all have a unique mission that is individual to each of us. But our purpose is the same. "To invite others to come unto Christ by helping them receive the restored gospel through faith in Jesus Christ and His Atonement, repentance, baptism and receiving the Holy Ghost and enduring to the end." Over the last month I have had different confirmation feelings that I am where I am supposed to be. I cannot imagine serving my mission anywhere else. I absolutely love it here. 

Later that night we went to Norma's house (the one that was baptized in Walden Pond a couple weeks ago). She made us pupusas! So yummy! Definitely a good part of our day haha. 

On Saturday we had a chapel tour in New Haven, CT. The chapel is really cool! It is right next to Yale University! So we got to go contacting on campus and look around a bit. It was a beautiful campus! The first person we contacted was very willing to come and take a tour of the chapel! It was awesome! 

On Sunday we went into Boston and then we drove down to Avon, CT for a training meeting for the Temple Open House. There are 4 sets of Sisters that will be coming up from the New York NY North Mission, so we got to meet them! And we were given further instructions on what we will be doing while we are working at the temple open house. It sounds like it is going to be a busy few weeks, but it will so much fun! What a unique calling. I feel so blessed to be able to play a small part in this event. 

Today for Pday we had an Arizona Snowball Fight.... SO MUCH FUN! We cut up tights and then put flour in them and then threw them at each other. In my opinion this was way more fun than an actually snowball fight haha. 

Well, that's all folks! We are doing well! We have a big week ahead of us, but it is going to be great! Thank you all for your thoughts and prayers! Love you all! 

Love, Sister Egan
