Week #74

Week 1 in La Pampa!

Hey, hey!!!

This past week was awesome!!!! This sector is just awesome! I´ve been loving the past week! 
 First off, my comp, Elder Wheelwright is a stud, its great working with him! He really takes alot off the load since he´s got some time in the mission and can work real well! My past few comps they have been in there first few weeks to months as a missionary so its been quite a breath of fresh air here working with him in this sector! We have a ton of really good people here to teach and this past week we found 20 or so new people that we´ll be help this and the coming weeks! This week we will be having the baptism of 2 people, one named Carlos who we found last week and another of a man named Angel! They both are really special people especially Angel, for the past year from what I understand, he has been working with the missionaries to get baptized. One of these challenges is that during the past 3 months, he lost the ability to walk. He is a man with a ton of faith and this weekend he will finally make the step towards baptism!!!!! We are super excited for him and Carlos. More than anything, this past week was to get to know people and the sector. I know the next few months here will be great and that the Lord will pour out many blessings. I hope you all have an great week!!!!

Week #73

Week 24 in Mejillones, The End.

Well, well, well!!!

So, the past few days have just been a roller coaster!!!! We´ll start off with Friday, I got the call for transfers (I´ll get to that in a second). Saturday I did a good bit of packing and saying goodbyes because Sunday morning the other sector in Mejillones had 2 baptisms so we helped with that and in the evening we helped with an Open Chapel in Antofagasta! This morning I left bright and early in a bus and right now I´m in my new sector. In Alto Hospicio!!! My sector is La Pampa!!!! I´ve been here for about  3 hours now but I love it! My comp is Elder Wheelwright from Utah (third one in a row...;)!!!! I´ll don't know him too good yet but next week I´ll get back on the details!

It was sad leaving Mejillones, but I was excited to leave. My second sector where I had been there for almost 6 months.There is a lot of great people there and many memories that will have a special place in my heart for the years to come. I´m grateful for the many companions I had there, they´ll be friends for life! More than anything I´m excited to be here and to be able to bring to pass the work of the Lord here. I hope you all have a good week and next time I´ll have pictures with stories!!!

Week #72

Week 23 in Mejillones !!!!!!


Been a good week!!! Lots of things going on!!!!! The conference was great!!!! This past week I had an interview with a lady named Vivianna and her son Jesus!!! They will be getting baptized this week! I'm excited for the elders in my district since these past few weeks have been a little rough but now they are seeing the fruits of their labors!!!! The conference was just great this past week and I would like to share something I really liked:

In Elder Rasband's talk, he talked about the Spirit. I believe in the lives of everyone, they want to feel the spirit more and they want to be able to recognize the promptings of it. This talk was just perfect outlining what we have to do to be able to use the power of the Holy Ghost in our lives and recognize it. I don't have a lot of time to share everything, but I would like to testify of the power of the Holy Ghost and that it is real. I have felt strong impressions of it in my life and it is God`s way of showing His love to us. I testify if everyone can put a stronger effort to feel this in their lives that you will be blessed with the powers of Heaven and know what God wants for you. I hope you all to have a great week! Love,

Elder Grant Arthur Eagar

Well, things are great here!!! Last week was great!! We had a great conference with our mission president and it was a great experience!! We learned different ways to help our investiagtors in there repentance process and how to help them in that aspect!!! Saturday was the baptism of Oswaldo!!!!! It was a great service and Im so excited for this young man!! Afterwards we were talking a little to him about serving a mission in the near future and he is pretty animated about everything to do with the church!!!!! 

Other than that, not much going on here. We´re excited for general conference this weekend!!!! Other than that, til next week!

Week #70

Week 21 in Mejillones!!!


Hows it going!!!!???? We´re doing good here out in Mejillones Chile!!! This past week was fun and also interesting....last week fishing my feet got destroyed in the sun and pretty much everyday was qutie painful here!! I got some nice pictures but forgot my camera to give ya´ll some leg shots. But we were able to get some work in almost each day of the week! We had some good interviews for some investigatores and this week our investigator Oswaldo will be getting baptized!!!!! He´s the brother in law of the Branch President who just got here from Eqcuador!! Hes progressed super well and we are so pumped for him this saturday!!! Also in my district, the other sector will be having 2 baptisms the same day! Overall this should be a great week coming up especially since we have interviews and a conference with President Ferreira!!!

This past week was quite interesting with the feet problem. It really gave me some time to ponder on Christ and His Atonement. The pains that he suffered and all the he endured for us. It really gave me a greater insight and deeper desire to serve him in all that I can. Each one of us in great dept to him. There is a price to pay for all. With that it is nessesary to repent each day and make different covenants with God to save us from our fallen state. I hope you all have a good week and enjoy you many blessings!!!!

Con Amor,
