Investigators and The Incredible Hulk

The rhubarb soda was actually very good. You would like it a lot. Elder Heninger thought it was very good too. It's probably the fifth best soda I have had.

Mike is going along okay, he still has issues with drinking and smoking. He can't get baptized until he has a permanent address, so he is a long term project.

****** has issues with smoking, and he doesn't really want to take the lessons. He just wants to hang out.

**** is a less-active member. He was an active, temple-going member in Logan for a few years, but then he got a girlfriend and it was all downhill from there. He has 3 kids, and we almost have them coming to church. He just needs to stop being lazy and go.

**** was another less-active we ran into. He grew up in Payson UT, and stopped going to church when he joined the navy. He ended up homeless for a couple years, and this church in Roseville called Bridgeway helped him get back on his feet. He knows the Book of Mormon is true, but he feels obligated to Bridgeway. He hasn't smoked since we met him, so I think we can make a big difference for him.

********* is a weird guy that was in the area book. We set up an appointment, but he was a no-show.

We also have an investigator named *** that we are most likely going to drop this week. He has read way too much anti-mormon material. We answer his questions boldly and accurately, but he won't let go of certain things. He claims that 1 Nephi 1:3 proves the Book of Mormon isn't true, because Nephi says he wrote the book from his own knowledge. We explained that of course it was from his own knowledge because you can't write a book from somebody else's brain, and he was guided by the spirit, etc. We finally got him to pray about the Book of Mormon, but if he doesn't get an answer we will drop him.

The weather is beautiful. It's been hovering around a hundred all week. IT has been nice.

We get a mini-missionary tonight. He will stay with us for 3 days. This is a unique opportunity, one that will not likely be repeated. Heninger only knows of a few missionaries who have hosted a mini-missionary. I guess this means Michael could do that if Drew works it out.

My thighs got so big that I busted a seam on a pair of my pants. I am going to send an email to Missionary Mall.

I thank you all for you letters. I love you guys.
