Tuesday was pretty good. We went to habitat for humanity and did some service and we got to witness a crazy redneck cuss out Walmart for giving him a bad propane tank. We drove out to the boonies and no one was home so that sucked.
Wednesday was dope. We went to Zone Conference in SEARCY!!! It was awesome. We learned some awesome facts about Joseph Smith and the translation/writing of the Book of Mormon by the prophet and how to use it better. I got to see Sister Duncan and the Brown family as well as a few other members, like the Ryans (Sister Ryan and Sister Howard and Wilman fed us lunch!). Sister Ryan pulled through and got me the first caramel apple pie before they really brought out desert. It was awesome to be back in that building and hang with my favorite people!! Steven moved to Beebe so I'm gonna get on those kids to teach him. They're both super green and so Steven is gonna tear them up if they don't know how to talk to him. I started my exchange with Elder Parks.

And bent with the chill of the Winter’s day.
The street was wet with a recent snow,
And the woman’s feet were aged and slow.
She stood at the crossing and waited long,
Alone, uncared for, amid the throng
Of human beings who passed her by
Nor heeded the glance of her anxious eye.
Down the street, with laughter and shout,
Glad in the freedom of ‘school let out,’
Came the boys like a flock of sheep,
Hailing the snow piled white and deep. …
One paused beside her and whispered low,
'I’ll help you cross, if you wish to go? …
'She’s somebody’s mother, boys, you know,
For all she’s aged and poor and slow.
“‘And I hope some fellow will lend a hand
To help my mother, you understand,
If ever she’s poor and old and gray,
When her own dear boy is far away.’
And ‘somebody’s mother’ bowed low her head
In her home that night, and the prayer she said
Was, ‘God be kind to the noble boy,
Who is somebody’s son, and pride and joy.’"

We got a hold of a guy named Drew and he wants to take us out hiking today! We'll send details about that after! But it's been a great week! Many miracles happening in Batesville! I've been humbled and more happy than ever. I cant wait for this week! It's weeks like this that come to show God answers prayers. He's there guys, he's there and listening.

8 Finally, be ye all of one mind, having compassion one of another, love as brethren, be pitiful, be courteous:
9 Not rendering evil for evil, or railing for railing: but contrariwise blessing; knowing that ye are there unto called, that ye should inherit a blessing.
10 For he that will love life, and see good days, let him refrain his tongue from evil, and his lips that they speak no guile:
11 Let him eschew evil, and do good; let him seek peace, and ensue it.
12 For the eyes of the Lord are over the righteous, and his ears are open unto their prayers: but the face of the Lord is against them that do evil.
