I still can't believe that I'm back here! The past couple of days have been filled with reunions and meeting old friends and making new ones. It's been just super weird seeing all of these places again and remembering old memories I've forgotten about. Needless to say, it's been a pretty happening few days. My companion, Elder Powell, is a stud too. It's a lot of pressure to take over an area after only being out one transfer but he is killing it.
I've been going through the routine of trying to learn all the names and faces of the people we are teaching and the members around here. We've got some solid ward members and we are teaching some awesome people. My first night here, we went over to a members to teach a lady named Lisa that has a date for the end of February and she is great! She is almost done with the Book of Mormon and she is reading the "Teachings of The Prophets" series cause she loves the church. She just needs to quit smoking and she is down to less than 1 cigarette a day so we are praying for her!
I'm super happy to be back here in Branson and Elder Powell and I are teaching great together. He is super humble and ready to learn more about being a missionary and I'm learning a lot from him. Also, our address is 1053 State Highway F unit #12 Branson, Missouri 65616 but we will be moving to a different place March 1st so hurry and send all of those packages you've been holding on to! Love ya!
Love, Elder Leavitt
