Last Saturday I received a phone call about 10:00 in the morning. "Hi, is this the Egans?" "Yes, it is" "My name is Bishop so-and-so I'm the bishop from the Jackson, TN ward. I'm the bishop for the ward that Cameron is serving". Wow, I couldn't decide if I should be happy or scared....wondering if he had been injured or maimed in some horrible fashion (mother and ER nurse....bad combination). He went on to explain that Elder Egan was fine. He said that he was here dropping his daughter off at school and would be leaving early in the morning to drive back to Tennessee. Did I have anything I would like to send back with him for Elder Egan????? YA!!!! He told me he had plenty of room and I could send as much as I wanted......I'm not sure he really understood what he was saying!
So I spent the next few hours baking cookies and getting other goodies. He got 2 containers of Nestles chocolate milk mix, 2 loaves of Harpers bread...he loves it, 4 jars of homemade salsa, 2 jars of homemade spaghetti sauce, 4 containers of frozen strawberry jam, large box of potatoes, and a "few" other things. It ended up being 4 large boxes that I sent with that poor bishop. What a fun treat for me!
It was fun to visit with him about his ward, it comprises 75 miles of interstate, I can't even imagine. He was very nice. I loaded him up with left over chocolates and sent him with some homemade salsa and cookies too.
Anyway, it was a wonderful gesture and he didn't seem to bat an eye when I started hauling four boxes out!
Awesome bishop!!!! Made my day!
