Another successful week in the Arkansas Bentonville Mission! Yesterday, Elder Udy and I hit our
10 month mark! A super cool less active girl in our area found out about it and made us blue
velvet cupcakes to celebrate. We went over there last night for a lesson and afterwards we had
ourselves some dang good cupcakes. It's seriously crazy to think that it's been that long but there
is still so much to do!
This past week we scheduled our usual appointment with our recent convert Kamal. He's the one
from Syria that doesn't know a ton of English but he's got to be the nicest guy I've ever met. He's
a Taxi driver so he doesn't make a whole lot but this week when we went over there, he had
made us lunch. It was a Syrian food called Kshk (kishk) with this kind of Syrian bread and it was
seriously amazing. It's like this chowder kind of thing that you put on the bread. I'll just have to
send a picture of it. I can honestly say that when I got called to this mission, I didn't think I would
be eating Kshk with a Syrian Convert.
In other news, this Saturday is when we will get the transfer calls. I'm hoping that we both end
up staying cause I've loved it here with Elder Udy but he's already been here 4 1/2 months so I
guess we will just have to see what happens. I hope all is well wherever you are. Thanks for everything!
Love, Elder Leavitt
