Im not sure where to start, there is so many things I could talk about! here we go!
I said goodbye to my first area in my mission! SO HARD! Im going to miss those families so much and the ward! But I feel really good how I left the area! Every single person was still going to church that we got to help in the past 10 months, everybodys recorders were in the Carpeta, which is a big deal for me! Its not easy to keep the records updated but its worrth it!!! so worth it! My Child, His companion is soo great and will help him so much and they have a lot of work to do with the templo so I feel realy great! There was a few sad people, a few toilet paper rolls out whiping the tears, but I explained to not worry because the gospel is eternal! I just feel like a have so many families!
I Got my new companion! Elder Cowley! Hes the best! I love him to death, and worked sooo hard this past week that we both keep falling a sleep in our prayers. I still havent touched my suitecases to unpack and ive been here for a week! we work all day loong and I love it!!!! This area has soo much work to do! Theres so many memberes but so many our less active the ward is pretty weak, but we area making sure everybody is reading there book of mormon, even the bishop! Its been very surprising who isnt reading there book of mormon and it explains why this ward is stuggling! anyways were going to be working really really hard!! Meet the Zone, theres 22 missionaries, sooo great! 4 of them are from my group and they all were like What did you do Elder Marshall....I said I dont know!! There my favorite!!
I had the chance to go to the first Leadership council, called Concilio. I was the Youngest missionary there....so I felt very intimitaded! then President asked me to Juggle in front of everyone!!! He said he was thinking about who the new zone leader would be and then he figured out he needed to do an example by juggling and thats how he called me, he needed a juggler! hahah he was joking but, it was pretty fun! We also got to enter the The TRujillo Templo as a part of the meeting!!!! IT IS MY FAVORITE TEMPLE, Its the prettiest temple in the whole wide world, and im not just saying that to say that, its the Truth!!! I entered into the Baptism font, Ill never forget how i felt, it impacted my heart, i Just felt the love of the people that I had the chance to help by entering into the temple and doing baptizms for the dead! It was such an incredible expierence!!! }
To finish off the week! Got to talk to the most beautiful Women in the whole world! MY MOMMaAA !! It was the greatest expierence to meet my two nephews, Im the proudest uncle in the whole world!!! Such studs they are!!! I am soooo sure and positive that I have the best family in the whole world! Im so greatful for them in my life! they Make me who i am!!
Im so excited for this week, we have sooo much stuff to do and I can just feel the spirit of diligencia and hard work that keeps us going and helping Our father in heaven complete his goals to help EVERYONE OF US, return to him! His grace and Mercy is shown to all of us with the sacrifice of his perfect child, Jesus Christ! Hes our very best friend, I know he lives, find his love this week! Apply the atonement everyday by remembering your covenatns and daily repenatnce!
Love you all so much!
Elder Marshall Fuerza y Honre!
