Reporting for Duty!

Today we are disneybounding as Pain and Panic from Hercules! Sister Driesel is brilliant and came up with it! So of course the quote: "Pain! And Panic! Reporting for duty!" has been in my head all day long! 

Being a missionary is awesome!

I hope you all know that #catnation is a thing here in Muncie. Calls are always ended with a meow. And we talk about cats frequently. I am leaving my pawprint here in Muncie for sure. All the cat shirts and cat memes and cat hangers had to eventually leak out into the whole Muncie North Zone!

It is a beautiful thing.

Zone Conference

Hey so this week we had zone conference and President Porter and Sister Porter are just amazing! I learned so much about the doctrine of Christ and how I can change and become more like my Savior. 

This week we are working on getting our friend Diane moved out of the house she is staying in, so that she can start living the law of Chastity and be baptized at the end of the month! We are meeting lots of new and exciting people each day and I love sharing the gospel!

I hope everyone has a super amazing week!

Sure love ya!

Fun Fun

Today's Disneybounding (preparation day edition) is brought to you by moms who are freaking awesome and send you pants that you wanted before your mission but were too chicken to buy them because you were going to be wearing skirts for a year and a half. They are the best pants in the world. And so today I am Jasmine. Magical Monday.

Today we are having a zone day fun day and so that should be good. Elder Carter was transferred last week and Elder Barfuss is my new zone leader along with Elder Chamberlain who stayed. They are both awesome. I will miss Elder Carter though. That Elder helped me through a ton. 

So this week we walked past the "Happy House". On our way from a member's house to an appointment that we had. It has all of these animal statues out in the front. Painted bright yellow and they have smiley faces all over them. It is the coolest house ever and I bet that inside it is a bouncy house or something. 

So something that I have been thinking a lot about lately and since I can't think of anything else to write about you can read about this. President Porter challenged us to read through the Book of Mormon with our companion and mark references to Christ in red, if then statements in blue, instances of faith like the ancients in yellow and the doctrine of Christ in green. It is the coolest and most revelatory way to study the Book of Mormon. I would encourage anyone and everyone to study it this way. Christ is referenced all over the place and it truly is a book that testifies of Him. 

I know that this gospel is a gospel of change. I know that I can be better tomorrow that Christ can help me to become what He needs me to be. What He knows I can be. 

I hope everyone has a super week! 

Sure love ya!

Funcie Muncie!!

So transfer calls were this morning and I AM STAYING IN MUNCIE! So is Sister Driesel and I am so excited! For the next six weeks I can keep building the kingdom here! We have some sweet friends we are working with and I just love them! 

So here is a funny story that I think of and it makes me laugh. Brother Stong. He goes out with the Elders teaching all the time and is the funniest man alive. One time the Elders got a text and they were really excited because it was a media referral! But then they read through it and realized that Brother Stong had referred Abraham. His dog. Abraham really wanted a Finding Faith in Christ DVD. Man he kills me! 

So this week has been full of God's grace! It has been amazing to see what we can accomplish through Heavenly Father and his power. He loves all of us and wants us to succeed. He did not send us here to fail. He will help us and all we have to do is ask. 

President Porter opened up our fast on Saturday with a POWERFUL prayer that really carried us through the fast and helped us to see even more miracles. I know that fasting is a way to receive revelation and to see God's power in your life. 

Also if any of you reading this have not watched the mormon message "The Hope Of God's Light". Go watch it. It is the most artistic mormon message I have seen and it invites the spirit so strongly. 

Have a great week! Sure love ya!

P.s. sometimes we leave cookies for members that are not home and use their chalk to tell them to eat them (: I love being a missionary!!
