Wellllllllllllllllllll It is STILL Christmas on Temple Square and we're busier than ever.
Sister C and I have been very busy teaching our investigators and trying our best to help them progress. We have truly discovered that everything is within the Lord's timing and as long as we continue reading, praying, and doing everything we can to find answers from God, the spiritual experiences will come, you just have to be patient. We are just waiting for them all to have their own converting experiences and doing our best to help :)
Sister C will be going outbound next transfer to Tempe Arizona! Which means I have another 100% chance that I will get a new companion. Bitter sweet. I will find out next Monday who my new companion is, what my assignment will be, and what my new p-day is (praying for a Wed. Thurs. , or Fri. or else I will miss p-day next week :(
I really wish I had more to tell you but not much else has been happening. We've been caroling, freezing, and finding new people to share the gospel with and I am loving every second of it.
(Also caroling is hilarious when a good 80% of the Sisters are foreign, still learning English, and don't know any of the Christmas hymns, so we American sisters really have to step it up hahaha) This is why I have no voice the passed couple of days, but hey it's all worth it! [[Note from Sister Eging's mom -- I am sure she is having no trouble at all belting those hymns out, all that practice at home, "singing loudly so all could hear," must really be paying off now. Who knew that all that time she was just preparing for Christmas time at temple square!]]
Some days are hard, long, and stressful. We work all the time, cry for our people, and laugh with the sisters. I love everyone I have met here, I love my mission so very much and there is no place I would rather be at this time in my life. I am so grateful that I have been able to grow and change so much and come closer with God. I love my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and will do all I can to follow Him and bring others to Him.
The Sky is Blue
The Church is True
Love, Sister Eging
