Hello Wonderfully fantabulios family!
Today we found out who is staying and who is going. Elder Williams is leaving, he is going Zone Leader.
We have a lot of fights, we get physical with each other, like this morning we wrestled, played mercy, he usually won, but it was fun. We get along very good. We punch each other in the shoulder, play tag by hitting each other, knock rocks between each others legs. We had a good time. Oh by the way, I'm getting transferred, too.
Bruce is so awesome he gives us rides places, jokes around with us. He is practically a member. We had six investigators at church, it was so sweet. There is a couple from Kenya, whom we found Tuesday, taught Wednesday, and Saturday, and came to church Sunday. They have been so prepared by the Lord. They accepted to be baptized on July 30. They already believe what has been taught, are praying the right way, and for missionaries to go all over, and for the church to grow in Kenya. They are so solid!
William quit smoking on Thursday. That makes me so happy! He is off probation and is working hard to be baptized on July 16. We are sending him three scriptures to him per day right before his smoke break. We had stuck a Jesus picture on his pack, and We committed him to not buy anymore. He has stayed true to his word. He is really awesome!
This is an awesome area. I am sad, but happy to leave. There are many good people here. Thank you for being an awesome family! and for supporting me! I will let you know next week where I am, since I don't find out until Wednesday.
Last Monday we went up to Fishers and played dodge ball with another zone. It was so much fun! I got a couple people, but since everyone knows I am not athletically inclined, I got hit a lot. One time, I got one drilled right into my face. It left a cool imprint on my glasses, oh yea, they broke, but don't worry, I fixed them, myself :) . I had a little headache but I kept playing. Then we played football. That was fun, I got a few bruises. They made me be quarter back once, I was like no way, I'll drop the ball. They made me do it, so I did, I threw it and made a touch down, that was sweet.
It is really neat how much people are willing to let you teach them if you either and or help them or listen to them. We had both happen yesterday, we listened to someone complain about their life, then they were interested in hearing what we had to say. Right after we checked on a potential, they were moving so we helped them for a few minutes, they told us to come by the new place they were moving to.
I love being a missionary! It is so awesome! you get so many experiences. Have an awesome week! I love you!!
May the Spirit be with you!

P.S. I had the White Castle experience this week. It was sweet. Just imagine eating paste in hamburger form, then having a rock move around in your stomach, then having diarrhea. And you will have had the White Castle experience. It was not so bad for me, plus it tasted really good, and the fries, when you squeeze them the grease just flows out. Guess where I am taking you all to eat after I get back. Oh yea, It will be sweet! :)
