This past week has been one of the greatest weeks in the history of all weeks! it flew by. I decided this past week that one of my worst enemies in this great work of the Lord is TIME. I just want to throw my watch against the wall all the time, but I cant, because I really need to learn how to use my time the way the Lord wants me to use it.
This past week, we ran like crazy man. We used last Pday to prepare a training for the zone on the next day, it was a great day I learned so many things, but it was also very crazy! We ended the night with running to our room at 9:27pmwith a bucket full of medium sized rocks!
We then Gave a trianing the next day it was awesome we had a theme for the training based on Boats, or Ships. That we are the captians of our Ships. We talked about many things. We also had the senior couple in the zone take a part of the training and the Hermana leaders for our zone also came and took part of the training so it was very evenly done. Anyways we ended the traing talking about Mighty Prayer, and as if we mightly prayer we are able to complete the will of our Heavenly Father. We then connected that Mighty Prayer with Anchors!! it was so very cool we read Ether 12:4 and Hebrews 6:19. we finished the training with a Mighty Prayer were we had everyone say one name and we wrote it up on the board and we prayed so mightly. It really was such a powerful prayer that united the zone so very much! Then we presented the goal for the month of agosto. we sent them on a treasure hunt, and gave them, the captians compasses to find there Anchors. It was like the classic Christmas treasure hunt but the whole zone was going all over the stake center with little hints. And then they got to there Anchors. We took rocks, tied string around them all called them Anchors. It was awesome, What they have to do with there anchors is we gave them each a little small stick note booklet, and everyday they put a name, desire, attribute that they want to develope and they write it down on the paper and put it under there anchor...the goal is that at the end of the month they get done and they can look at all the desires of there hearts and see how the Lord answers Mighty Prayers and how the Veil is pentrated! It was sooo cooll. It was something that was came very much from the spirit! But the zone is doing so very well! I love each and everyone of them so very much!
We also moved a few elders, this past week. Found a new penshanista for another companionship, went on an interchange, had a meeting with our district leaders, and much more. It was a very crazy week. But so very cool!!
IN our area, our Alma Rescued of Elder Cowley and I, Hubert, recieved the Priesthood, when we sat down back in his seat I gave him a big hug and noticed tears in his eyes. He is so very great! he will be baptizing his Daughter this saturday!
We had a lot of little miracles during the week. There is a lot of struggles that the ward is passing through, but we are just trying to strengthen them and help them find the positive.
This sunday was a little crazy, I just remember sitting there singing the Hymn for the sacrement, looking around at who was there and who wasnt there and who promised us theyd be there and when you are a missionary you are always sitting there with a prayer in your heart, praying that everybody makes it to take a part of the sacrement. I just remember feeling such a great pain in my heart this sunday, singing the last line of the sacrement hymn, praying that it would drag on so more people could enter, so that more people could partake of peace and joy. I will never forget those feeings. I felt like those 5 virigins that made it, and looking at the door shut knowing the 5 are still out there. I really hope and pray that this week I can help and prepare the people to be ready to take the sacrement and to really help them understand the reason why!
I love you all, I pray for you all, and wish that you can find all the miracles of our Heavenly Father
Love Elder Marshall
