Sister Leausa and I exchanged emails yesterday and she is doing really well. This week was transfer week and she is not going anywhere this time. She will stay in Marikina with Sister Ghouri.
Sister Leausa also shared some very exciting news with me. Her very first companion that she went through the MTC with, Sister Swanson, has been transferred to Sister Leausa's area and will now be a companion to one of the other sisters that Sister Leausa lives with. What a wonderful reunion this will be for these two sister missionaries.

I learned that missionaries that are going home are allowed to call other missionaries in their area just before they leave the mission field. This morning Elder Soifua (her second cousin) called her to say good-bye and wish her well. Sister Leausa will miss seeing him but she is so excited for him to be headed home and "returning with honor." Elder Soifua is such a great example to her.
Sister Leausa did not have time to write her "weekly email" this week so I just wanted to give you a quick update. She has had an awesome week this past week and sends her love to everyone.

It was raining so hard that day.
They really got to experience missionary work.
