Happy Easter

This week was pretty good, the weeks are going by so fast its crazy! i cant believe i just had my last conference on my mission, and i cant believe its already April! Conference was a highlight for this week, i really enjoyed all the talks this year. George came to the church and watched all the sessions with us :) Conference is such a good reminder of the things we should be doing and gives us motivation to start again and move forward. I loved President Eyrings talk about Fasting and donating fast offerings. Fasting is really hard for me, but it was a good reminder of the blessings that come when we keep Gods commandments. Also i loved Elder Nelsons talk about making the Sabbath a delight. Lots of people in the world are forgetting about the Sabbath day and it becomes a day of running errands. There are great blessings when we keep the Sabbath day holy. We have 6 other days to do all of our errands and things like that, Heavenly Father deserves at least one day. So this week is transfers and we are getting a 3rd companion so we will be in a trio for a couple weeks.. This sister isnt going to be in leadership with us, but we are just kind of babysitting for a couple week. But things here are going great! The work is moving forward and great things are happening here! So george spoils us way more than he should... last Monday he took us to this nail salon and paid $60 for me and sister Beckstead to get manicures! hahah he is the best!! he said it was our Easter present! He is doing great and he is excited to do baptisms this weekend! im so grateful for this week that we were able to share our knowledge of Jesus Christ with others. And to especially focus on the fact that he lives! Here in the south everyone believes in Christ but they all focus on the cross and the fact that he died for them, so its hard for people when they come to our church building and they see that we dont have any crosses up, just pictures of the living Christ. We are so blessed to have the knowledge that we do! and to have a living prophet on the earth again! I hope you all have a great week! Love Sister Leifson :)
