2. There were two highlights in particular for me...
The first is coming in second place for the Bible quiz competition. Myself, Sim, Georgy and Sarvesh decided to make a team in the last minute and entered the competition. We hadn't read Leviticus or Hebrews and it was completely last minute in that we decided to join like a half-hour before the thing started. We entered as the Punjabi Masihi Church team. First, they tried to disqualify us; then we were accused of cheating. But we came out doing really well in the end--second place!! We lost to Portland...
The second highlight is definitely singing with the band. And on Friday night, when we had Ashish lead and Sim, Mia, and I just sang...simply glorious...thank You Jesus!
3. There were a few disappointments, but I'll leave those out here...
4. Sushi Night was insane!! De Wasabi Cruz downed a whole spoon of Wasabi and topped it off with water...all for $20. It was loud, crazy, and mad fun!
5. Sunday night, after everyone else left, Mia and I went to Well Tea to chill for a bit. Came out to find my tire was totally flat. And these wonderful people came and changed the tire for us. One of the girls who was with them joked, "Oh they're like your angels..." And we were like, "No kidding!!" And she says, "No really, their last name is Angel." I was so thankful.
Anyways, I have to go to work. God is good.
