Hello everyone!
I have no idea what to say right now. I am in Port Gardner now, which is nationally recognized for the most heroin overdoses. There is a lot of crazy going on here. But the good news is that I will grow spiritually from this area! 
We have a 9 year old investigator named Ruth who was supposed to be baptized last Saturday, but her dad canceled it 15 minutes before the baptism. We are planning for her to be baptized this coming Saturday. She is the cutest, bravest little girl I have ever met. Sunday morning we got her ready for church and then a member took her. She sat between Sister Dahl and I and we played tick-tack-toe. 
My new ward missionary leader is Brother Bob. He is 80 years old and a fascinating person. His family was killed in a drunk driving accident, so now he goes to schools and speaks about alcohol and drug use. He also housed troubled people who are often homeless and drug addicts. He has changed a couple of people’s lives around, though!
Brother Bob quote: “If at first you don’t succeed, place the blame quickly.” Hahaha! He is a funny person!
I hope everyone has a wonderful week!
Sister Tomkinson
