Awesome Possum

Happy Cinco De Mayo! Any holiday is a reason to celebrate! AYEAYEAYE! Arrrriiba! (:

So two things about Muncie. There are HUGE potholes everywhere and there are possums. Sometimes we want to stop and see if they are alive and playing dead, or really dead. But then we think that that would be a really bad idea so we keep driving. 

Monday was ZONE DAY FUN DAY! Woo! The whole zone got together and we played human foosball, chair soccer, basketball and even had a marshmallow fight with pvc pipes. It was so awesome! Our zone is the best!

So this week Sister Boyce, an awesome member in our ward took us to this delicious little cupcake shop called "The Flour Shop" and it is the best cupcake ever. And I am not just saying that because I am a missionary. It was really so delicious.

Yesterday was the baptism of C. He is the best. He had been taught by missionaries for a really long time and was baptized yesterday! The spirit was really there and Sister Benjamin sang. She has a beautiful voice. C bore his testimony after he was baptized and just said "As you can see I am wet. But the feeling inside is much better." That testimony was so simple. But perfectly summed up how the spirit works. Sometimes it is hard to put into words, but the feeling is what it is all about. 

And Brother Logan. He is the best. He is a fiddler. And he owns like seven or more BEAUTIFUL violins. And he let me play on one when we stopped by! We had a little jam sesh. It was so stress relieving. And mom. I know, please reread that. Sister Brown II, wanting to play the violin? Yes! It is true! And those fiddling books that we learned from payed off! Popping out Devils Dream was awesome. Brother Logan can harmonize by ear and it was the coolest thing!

Oh and the Bell family heard I was a greenie and had us over for an all out greenie meal! They have done it for forever with missionaries and have it down. An all-star green breakfast that was equal parts delicious and fun!

This week was amazing! Heavenly Father knows us individually and personally. The scriptures are where we can find those gems each day when we read. Our callings are from the Lord. And He knows best.
