Holy cow life is awesome here. I am in Compton, and it is freaking fun.
There are so many people here all the time its crazy. Just people on the streets all day long. I actually live in Long Beach, cause no missionaries actually live in Compton, cause that would just be a little to dangerous.
So i live about 1/2 a mile from the city. But my area is
fully in the heart of Compton. It is crazy here, a little sketchy, but crazy
fun. My new companion is a fun loving guy and we get along
great. He is really good with people, and so we make friends with everybody, and
hes really good at being a missionary. My apartment is not nearly as nice as
the one i just left. There are roaches and week smoking neighbors, and gay
people. Honestly, we have a big "Section 8 welcome here" sign on the
front of our apartment complex. not a good sign. But still, its a blast. I
think i sent you enough pictures, and sorry if i make a few spelling mistakes,
but i just have to work really fast. On saturday we got a lady married so she
could finally be baptized. Which she finally was on Sunday. So it was a great
start to the work in this area. Compton is honestly like no other place i have
ever been to, seen, or even heard of. There is a nearly constant noise of
police helicopters out looking for people, lots of sirens, the whole sha-bang. It
is just to fun, i love it here.
