Hey there!

So nothing too eventful to report on this past week. We've still been hooving it (deer pun intended) since our car is still being worked on. We found Elder Rooto a bike so we've been able to bike around a bit to some appointments. It's been really fun introducing him to normal American stuff. Like the other day, I made him a Root Beer float and it blew his mind! While we were biking we saw a baseball game going on and he had no idea what that was so I got to explain the whole game to him. It's just crazy that little normal things that we are used to are completely foreign to him. He comes from such a different culture so it has made things a lot more interesting.

I had a pretty cool experience the other day. We were listening to Elder Henry B. Eyring's talk and it was the one about when his dad prayed at each intersection to find out which way to go to find a church. So we thought," If it worked for him, it will look for us to find people to talk to." So we started biking and every intersection we stopped and said a little prayer to know where to go. We went all through these really sketchy streets and we were on bikes at night but we still felt like we should. Anyway, we were biking and some guy saw us and pointed and said," Aye Mormons!" so we stopped and talked to him. Turns out he was seriously investigating the church but then moved and wasn't able to get in contact with the missionaries. He really wanted to continue his learning. He didn't live in our area but we got all his info and gave it to the other elders.

Blessings come when we show that we have faith enough to act. I'm thankful for the opportunity each day that I have to show my faith. Thank you all for the continues support. I hope you all have a great week!

Love, Elder Leavitt
