I love serving the Lord.

This week was really awesome :) We got to go to knoxville for a meeting, it was thursday morning but we had to leave wednesday night because we are so far away.. it was a leadership meeting and the mission department form salt lake came and talked to us. it was such a good meeting! they only come once every three years so i was glad i got to be there for it! So george has a son named Dylan that is 15, but he wrestles and plays football so he is like super busy and we hadnt got to meet him yet, but george took us to dinner on saturday and brought Dylan :) we were so excited to meet him! We gave him a Book of Mormon and he said we could teach him again! We were so excited! Also George got the Priesthood yesterday :) he was really excited for that! A family in the ward brought a non member named Chris to church with them yesterday so we met him, and the family invited us to have lunch with them and chris after church so we went and we got to teach him the Restoration and he loved it! He is going to come to church with them next week as well. he has tattoos and he said that this is the first church he has been to that didnt judge him for them. He hasnt been to church in about 6 years! He is really awesome! A couple days ago we got a media referral and it was far away so it took us a couple days to contact her, but her name is Ruth and she is in her 30's. When we went to the door we asked if she requested missionaries to come over and she said "Yes i have cousins that are mormons and i would go to church with them, but i wasnt ready to convert then, but im ready to convert now!" oh my i almost died! haha so we went in and taught her the restoration which she already knew everything about and she already had a BOM and stuff so we committed her to be baptized on February 28 :) We are super excited for her!! The lord is really blessing us in this area :) i love it here so much!! Im sad i only have a couple more weeks with Sister Nelson... i love her so much! She is so awesome :) I hope you all have a good week! and a Happy Valentines Day :) 
Love Sister Leifson :)

  1. I really had fun reading your post, Linzi. I can feel your joy the way you express it through your writings. Serving the Lord is the best profession we can have in our life. To serve God is also to serve people. In some way, you are giving them a genuine feel of home that can’t be found other than the church. Well, thank you for sharing that. All the best to you!
