The Friendship Cup
Every year, international students at Lindenwood University compete in an intramural soccer tournament. In many ways it is a miniature replica of the World Cup tournament. The players take it very seriously, national pride is on display, and tempers often flare. It is known as "The Friendship Cup," but for some the name bears just a bit of irony.
Theater-goers exiting a popular musical about Mormon missionaries are met on the sidewalk by more black ties and white shirts. But these are not the performers; they're the real missionaries, venturing into what might seem to be hostile territory to spread their message. Sometimes the interactions are friendly, other times they are awkward, and occasionally the missionaries have to convince disappointed autograph-seekers that they're the real deal. 'I Believe' shows that sometimes the true missionaries on the sidewalk have to wear costumes too, and some of their biggest fans are the people one might least expect.
