Imagine the creepiest looking person you've seen in Provo. Imagine they're black. And that's basically what every single person we meet looks like. I wish I could say that everything we heard about Detroit was wrong but they were completely right. My companion and the other missionaries in our district have been robbed. I now know what marijuana smells like because you run into people that are high all the time. My companion is really good at sniffing it out.
We actually have three investigators who want to get baptized and are on date. Two of them are having a hard time quitting smoking though. The other investigator joined a different church a long time ago that provided her with a place to live. However, She does not believe in that church and she knows that our church is the true church, but if she gets baptized in our church, the other church, will make her move and she would have to live on the streets.
I have seen miracles happen here like a few days ago we were knocking doors on this one street and gained two new investigators within minutes of each other. I can feel your prayers for me and I'm so thankful for them. But also remember my investigators in your prayers. Two of them need to quit bad habits and come to church more, and the other needs to find a job so she can move away in order to get baptized. We have other investigators as well that we are teaching that just haven't felt the spirit yet confirm to them the truthfulness of our message.
I love you all and I am praying for you.
P.S. WHAT THE CRAP?!!!!!!?????!!!!?!?! YOU GOT A DOG!???!!!?!!!!!!!!!!!!?!!!!!!
