Selwin Meets the Po-po's

It's been a pretty okay week. Had some battles and stuff, but it was good.  It wasn't easy but it was good. Hope you all keep the spirit and let the Lord guide the way. Trust me, he's there. Doctrine and Covenants 84:88 - read it ... you will love it. It's been challenging, but I'm ready for it.  My companion's an awesome guy and we have a lot in common.  And, don't worry. I'm eating 3 times a day.  Yes, that's right.  Can't miss a meal out here!

The cops were called on us last evening. I had just slung my imaginary rope to my companion Elder Muhile to pull me up a really steep drive way when the cops came in two squad cars. One on them called me over.  He steps out of the car and says, "Who are you?" In my best missionary voice, I replied, "We are missionaries from The Church Of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints" He responded, "Oh, I thought you were Jehovah Witnesses."  Anyway he went on to apologize and said, "Somebody called in saying there were two black dudes roaming the neighborhood, so we came to check up on you."  At this point I just wanted to laugh. He apologized again and then they left. The minute they were around the corner I just started laughing. I said, "Really ... these people think we are going to do something to them dressed in shirts and ties, black pants and a bag filled with scriptures."  My companion didn't like it at all, though.
