Monday, April 25, 2016

Wow, this past week has been just crazy with everything we have going on. This past Tuesday one of the zone leaders wanted to do exchanges with Elder Udy so I was left in the area to figure somethings out. Luckily, we had a ton of referrals that needed contacting and some appointments that went really well. We are starting to get the hang of this whole two wards thing. I'm starting to remember some names and faces and I'm getting Tulsa down pretty well. I've met most of the people that we are teaching so that has kept us really busy. The New Haven ward  had a ward party this past Saturday. It was an international dinner and everyone brought food from different countries and we had a ton of people come out for it. There were a lot of new people there so we got a couple of potential investigators from it that we are excited about.
This past week, one of our part member/less active families had a new baby boy and they named him Johnny. They wanted to bless him right away so on Sunday, a small group of Priesthood holders ,including me and Elder Udy, got to bless their baby in Sacrament meeting. After the blessing, the non-member father told us that he wanted to get his life together for his new son so he wants to start coming to church. It only took a little baby boy to affect the life of a father. We are hoping that we can start teaching him now that he is more open to the idea.
Things have been getting a lot better in Tulsa. We are starting to get into the swing of things and we have definitely seen the Lord's hand in that aspect. I'm thankful for his watchful care and I'm glad that he is going to continue to lead us as we get things together. I love you all and I hope that you witness the Lord's watchful care this up coming week.

Peace and Blessings, 
Elder Leavitt

This is called the center of the universe. You stand in the middle and you can hear your voice echo but no one outside can hear you. Its kind of crazy!
