It was a great week.:)

This week has been so great! so to start off my week i went on exchanges in Franklin with a new missionary Hermana Challman. She is a spanish speaking sister and she is so great i just love her :) On thursday we got a referral from a member in our ward for a lady named Evelyn so we got to go teach her and she was really awesome! on Friday we were doing some finding and we got 2 solid people that we were able to teach and get a return appointment with :) Friday night i left to go on a second exchange for the week in Asheville with sister gifford :) she is a great sister as well and we had so much fun! While i was gone to asheville they found another new investigator named anthony! also yesterday at church our RS president brought a friend with her and she stayed for the whole block and then we got to teach her the restoration after church! her name is Rhonda and she is really awesome as well. We have been having a really hard time finding new investigators but this week was just a miracle and we were able to find lots of new people to teach!! :) this week we were also able to get two of our investigators with a baptism date! Craigs date is May 30 and Walkers date is May 17 :) i really want to be here for walkers! he is 11 and he is such a cute kid! So George got his patriarchal blessing on Saturday! he was so happy and he said it was a very spiritual experience for him. We got a new bishopric yesterday! our bishop was leaving for a sabbatical for a year so they released him and we got a new bishopric :) So the best news of the week is about Nerio the BYU guy we met at walmart! So he came to church last week and then on tuesday the sisters were going to try and see him because a spanish sister was in our area but he was too busy that day so he asked us to come over last night for dinner :) so we went and his sister and niece and daughter were there that he brought to church and while the sister was cooking we got to talk to him and we asked about his daughter in Provo going to byu and we asked if she would ever get baptized while she was out there and he said "oh she already got baptized into the mormon church! haha he also said that his ex wife was a member as well so he knows a little bit about Mormons. So we had dinner and we got to teach him the restoration after and he agreed to be baptized!! :) :) he said he wanted to pray about a date to get baptized so i hope its before i leave! i told him that when i go home i want to find his daughter in Provo and he said that if he gets baptized after i leave that he would pay for me and his daughter to fly here together to see him get baptized :) he is such a great guy! he owns a really successful construction business so when he came to church lots of people knew him because of his business. Everyone had great things to say about him! I love being a missionary so much! im really sad that its coming to an end so quickly, but i have loved it so much! i hope you all have a great week :) Love Sister Leifson :)
