Happy Easter and Conference

I had a really good week this week. it was super busy!! Tuesday i went on an exchange in Franklin with Hermana Norman. She is a spanish speaking sister so like all our lessons were in spanish.. that was rough for me haha but it was really neat to listen to her teach in spanish. It really made me miss the philippines and speaking a language, but im also grateful to be able to speak english! Friday we also had another exchange with the sisters in Asheville. We drove to asheville and did a power up in their area for a couple hours then me and sister lundberg came back to Waynesville and george took us out to dinner :) On Saturday we had a lesson with some investigators Lily and Waver, and george came to the lesson with us! it was so fun to have him come and help us teach our investigators :) George is doing so good! Our ward mission leader took him out with him to do some home teaching and he loved it! He called us after and was just on cloud 9 he was so happy :) he said that he felt like a missionary for once and that it was really uplifting to visit others and help them want to come back to church! He got his interview this week and he got his temple recommend to do baptisms :) he is going on April 11 with the ward :) We are so happy for him! This week we are going to Marion for exchanges so that should be fun! On Easter morning a family is taking us up on Blue ridge parkway at 4:00am to watch the sunrise! blue ridge parkway is one of the most photographed spots in the United States so im super excited to go there! im so excited for General Conference!! :) The general womens meeting really focused on the importance of family. I have really seen that on my mission. You can tell a big difference between the families that have Jesus Christ at the center and those that don't. i have been able to set alot of goals for how to have a Christ centered home and to have an environment where my family can learn and live the gospel. I Love my family so much. Im so grateful for the Book of Mormon and the spirit that comes when we read from it daily. im so grateful to be here on a mission :) i hope you all have a good week! Love Sister Leifson :)
