I went down into like catcher position for basebol and RIPPPppp.
We had two baptisms this week, wooooww. The first was Piero Jesus Mendez Rameriz, he has 11 years, and he is a stud. haha The before story of the bapitsm. We got to the church a little early to get everything ready and there was a bunch of people redoing the chalk boards to whiteboards and they were working where the baptizm font is, so we were like hey, we need this room. Sweet, we helped them move there stuff out of the room, and there were tons of screws on the ground so I went to grab some screws, I went down into like catcher position for basebol and RIPPPppp, they wripped from the top part of my bum to the very bottom of my bum, and oh my goodness it was hilarious, you should of seen my comps face!! ahhh it was so great. I put my baptizm pants on, finished getting everything ready, called up AnaMelba, she was planning on coming to the baptism, so she came and fixed my pants, she is the best! haha soo funnyy
The baptism of Pierito was so great, His testimony was so great and It really hit me, He said I can really feel Heavenly Father, and Jesus at myside now, they really are always with us, especially when we are keeping the commandments. He is such a stud, hes a little punk becuase he steals my plaque, and is a little minny Elder Marshall. Love the kid to death! The family is doing really great. His dad is on his way to recieve the Sacerdocio, Piero had invited a bunch of people to his baptism thats why I baptized him and not his dad in a few more weeks, His dad decided it was a better Idea to just do it. Such a great family, so excited to continue the work with them.
Sharon baptism was really great shes such an incredible example to me. She didnt tell anybody in her family about her baptism, her family is really sketchy, they are really acholoic, and are pretty rude to her, but she is the greatest! Every prayer she ALWAYS, thanks heavenly father for her family, she has definanlty taught me a lot, and her english is still really bad...llike she doesnt understand english at all, but its okay I Know the Lord will bless her for her decision, and with her family.
Some pretty awesome baptisms. We will have two more baptisms next week with Bruce and Anamelba! oh they are the greatest. They fed us dinner after our dinner a few times this week, Im gonna be soo fat!! haha they are the greatest.
This past week, Elder Valencia and I gave a lot of Bendiciones de Salud, Blessings for the Sick, We had a really great discussion about what we feel during blessings and how we know what to say during the blessing, Elder Valencia is such a great guy, im so greatful for him. The Power of the Preisthood hand in hand in hand with the Spirit, is so Key in the work of the church, something im starting to learn about.
OH, haha a gross story, One breakfast my mamma made us like a orange julius but with paypaaii, yum love it. I decided to serve myself first...bad decision Elder Marshall, I sipped the down the first swig, and in a lot of the drinks here, there is a lot of pulp, so there was a pulp like texture in the first sip, I was super close to sipping it down and continuing with my morning, but then the pulp started to squerm, that dang pulp wasnt not pulp it was a cucaracha...cockrouch...no se como escribe eso, in my mouth! I flipppeeddd! ewww...ahha the dang bugs here. I love it!
This Christmas season in the mission is incredible. I encourage all of you to find all the part in the book of mormon and bible where it talks about the Birth of JesuCristo and the resurrection. We are the True Church and for this we believe and rejoice and focus in the resurrecion of Chirst, el Vive!! Yo se con todo mi corazon.
Well, I love you all so much, thank you for all the emails and prayers.
