Exciting Times Ahead

Just saying.. It has been such a good week! I've been kind of down because when our area split, the Elder's took all of our investigators that we found pretty much.. So we've had to start over on the finding process and haven't really had any luck with that until this past week.
We have 2 new investigators that we found and they... are going to be interesting to teach. Both are strong in their beliefs and subborn but they said they would be willing to let us teach them. We are really going to have to rely on the spirit to soften their hearts and we'll just do our best with teaching them. And then there is the other investigator... She's just making everything more difficult for us. Love her to death, though! She has been taught for the past couple months and been going to church for over a year. She is going to get baptized but not until after her wedding. But she lives in Nampa which is in a completely different mission. She's been going to our ward for over a year with her fiance and his family and they say that they want to move here but I don't know if they can do it for the next while so... all sorts of confusion with the bishop here and the bishop there and the Mission President here and the one there...  It's going to happen though. Setting a date tomorrow night for the 28 of September. Actually we're setting 2 dates tomorrow. The other is with a girl who is turning 9 on Saturday so 'technically' she is our jurisdiction after that. We want to have it the first weekend in September with the stake youth baptism because she is still that age category.
Other than that, not much excitement. haha It's all exciting actually! And Sister Johnson is amazing! She's getting old though.. It was her birthday and she turned 20 so I have to give her grief for it:) I'm actually still one of the youngest sisters in our mission so everyone here is old compared to me. But we have fun. We bought her a BSU shirt last Monday since football season is about to start and those Idahoans.. Boy! The love their BSU! I can't wait for October because there are a lot of BYU fans here as well and I guess it's always a HUGE deal when they play each other. I had a BSU shirt from the AMAZING Larson's who buy all the missionaries who stay with them a shirt to remember them. I love it!
Oh! We both bought new scriptures! The new 2013 Version. Sis Johnson had a little incident with some hand sanitizer and.. she needed a new set lets just say. 
We have a lot of fun:) But we do get a lot of work done. We've exceeded our teaching goals this week which are already above our actuals for the week before which is amazing! We're really getting into the swing of things here. We are starting the 4th week of the transfer which is CRAZY! Sis Johnson and I are hoping we stay together next transfer, as well. Don't wanna separate!
Anyways, It's so amazing to see the miracles that happen being on a mission. I love how the Gospel can truly change the lives of all those who are willing to receive it. Truly it is just the greatest thing to be a missionary and be an instrument in the lords hands. Well I hope all is going well for you! Take care and I wish you all the best :)
