Heeeyy!!So I feel like I need to address this first thing. I see what picture you are referring to on the blog and that is not me. I repeat that is NOT ME. It really does look like me and Sister Cardus though but unfortunately it is not.
The second thing I need to address is the transfer changes. WAHOOO. We had transfer conference this morning and I felt like I was going to cry and throw up all at the same time. My nails are bitten down to nubs which makes it impossible to scratch my bed bug bites. So stressful. I already knew I was not going to be with Sister Cardus another transfer because we found out yesterday that she is a new Zone leader! Yay, shes so great. Thats my trainer everyone. Sooooo I have another foreign companion annndd she iss.........Sister Garcia from Spain! Mucho espanol. I have actually not met her yet though because she left to go outbound to New Mexico when I got here so on Wednesday will be our first time meeting. Everyone says she is super nice though and I am excited for this new transfer. Also my P-day has been changed to Thursday. Its a super random day I know but I get double P-day this week so that's legit. For the new transfer I will no longer be at Welfare Square :( but I do have a new assignment at guest services. My new companion and I will be assigned a couple days a week to basically be the receptionists for Temple Square. We will schedule V.I.P tours and stuff so it will be good. I am happy to have an assignment again. Sister Cardus is moving just down the hall so if I ever need my mom she will be close. I am also living in the same bed bug apartment haha but its okay I am glad I don't have to move and my Thai BFF Sister Tan is staying in the same apartment as me so its all good. So the new transfers will start on Wednesday and then I will get to email again on Thursday so I will let you know how everything goes.This week was crazy though. As you know, Charles had a baptismal date for last Saturday the 6th. We were all excited and were getting everything set up for Saturday when suddenly he dropped of the face of the earth. Noooooooooooooo! It was the worst. He would not answer our phone calls any more and he didn't show up to our appointment so by Saturday when we still hadn't heard from him we were super sad. I thought we were being punked by the whole situation because he really is too good to be true. His baptism was scheduled for 1pm on Saturday and at 12:50 we get a call from Charles when we were in the middle of the tour. This was the first call from him of the week. "Hey where are y'all? I'm at the church its almost time for my baptism." No way. I honestly cried. He said he was really busy all week helping out his old friends from the baptist church! Unfortunately because it was so last minute we were not able to baptize him this week but he is on date for next Saturday and Sister Cardus and I plan to go together. I have grown a strong testimony that fasting works! I have never fasted so hard in my life but I know the Lord blesses us for our efforts.
It is a great time to be alive. The Lords work is hastening and it is a blessing to be apart of it. I love you all and will talk to you in like 3 days! #sharethegift
Love, Sister Leavitt <3
