Trust in the Lord, put our life in the Lord's hand and he will take care of the rest.
This week has been Great!!! I dont really know where to start. First I hope all is well back home, i sure do miss everybody and love everyone!
Okay. So Satruday we went out proseylting again, This time i was with a latino Elder Sanchaz, in 2 weeks ill send a picture of him to you! it was incredible anyways we taught 4 people in 2 hours so we had some lengthy disussions. First family was inactive, and the family was giant, i still dont know how many kids were in that house/shack/store. It was crazy! I understood a lot of the spanish which was great, they dont go to church because he has to work on sunday to raise enough money for the family, which is really dificult. anyways we start the lesson, one of there daughters has her own kid and shes in the corner and begins breastfeeding, that was crazy, the lesson went well, but the member talked a lot. I shared isaiah 41:10 and said that we need to trust in the lord, put our life in the lords hand and he will take care of the rest. and then i testified. It went well. The next two people were sisters and we commited them to go to church. shared 2 nephi 31:19-21. and testified! the teaching is becoming a lot easier and golly g it sure is great to have to Espiritu Santo by your side to help you! the last person we talked to was a member and my comp talked to her for a while, it was great cause i could understand it. My comp was talking to her about the norte americanos in the ccm and it was hilarious to hear what he said about the americans! it was mainly about how we ate and how we eat so much bread in the ccm and cover it in butter, which a lot of elders to cause there fat and crazy! but it was hilarious!
I was teaching in Lima Norte, in the poorest part of the city, and the most dangerous. Everybody back home, we are so blessed, thats basically all im going to say. Please thank the lord EVERY day for what you have been SO blessed with!!! I also talked to Corbin Lee on the phone he went to sv and he is a ZL leader in LIman norte!!! hes doing great!
OH my gosh, so on the way back to the CCM from LIma norte my comp decided to try and hand folletas out the window of our bus to people in other buses or taxis!!!! it was crazy! he wrote his testimony on the folleta and when in traffica would knock on the window of a neighboring bus and then would hand them a folleta to them!!!! we handed about 25 pamphlets on the way back to the ccm. Also this little guy had a big crush on one of the NOrte americanos hermanas and said to me in english Elder Marshall I pay you cinco dollars if you get her email for me!!! soo funny and he would say..in cute broken up english.. she is more beautiful then the sun! The Hermana thought it was the geatest thing!!!
Everybody here at the CCM really enjoys my piano playing so i play a little bit during study time, which has been really wonderful for realieving stress. The hermanas are big fans of my talented fingers...but remember pg 33, its the page in the white handbook that says dont flirt..The district uses it one me a lot, whenever I am Talking to hermanas....struggs in the ccm!
Funny stories, our District stuggles with pedos which is farts!! the food here really makes everybody fart. so whenver anyways farts....we have threats from both teachers. the one in the morning says if you pedo, you will have to talk to presidenta gonzoles. the one in the afternoon threats us with you have to go to a class with hermanas and tell the class you have problems with pedoing!! its pretty funny.
The district is doing great! we are all learning great spanish. I ran with elder hinman the other day for physical activity, the whole time!!! yup i was sore after that run. we play lots of soccer, and other things. um elder grant is doing great, he sure is a strang kid but ya gotta love him. My comps are doing great. they are so good to me and we sure do have a great time together.
Oh, I was giving a tie by one of the elders that left, anyways the tie is one that is passed down from someone leaving to a 2 weeks left missionary. This missionary picks the elder that has exact obedience and sets an example for other elders, Elder Zibeti gave it to me and it was a really cool expierence for me, i really looked up to Elder zibeti so it ment a lot!
The CCM is wonderful but I cant wait to go Trujillo!!!! ahhh The Church is true, I love this work, please keep emailing me and telling me about your lifes, I sure do love them!!!
Love Elder Marshall
