So, we had this awesome meeting on Wednesday, with a 70 Elder Uceda, such a great meeting....but im sitting there alright and its really hot and for some reason im feeling a little queesee, and then i leaned over to my comp and said hey we got to go to the bathroom like now! so we ran to the bathroom and I decided to throw up lunch, but can i say im very skilled because i did not get anything on my suit or tie! legit! WE missed a few talks cause I barfed a few more times, but its okay MOM that is part of the journey here, the elders call it Double Headed Dragon. im gonnna let you figure that one out! Anyways the meeting was about the Work of Salvation El obra De Salvacion, and it was soo good, it was all about working in UNIDAD with the consejo de barrio, ward counsel. It was a spectuacular meeting!
We went to one of our appointments to teach this lady who really wanted to talk to us, but she owned a little tienda, there were some guys that were drinking some cerveza, and were talking to them and they looked at me and offered me some, and I stopped for a second and thought to myself, I think that this is the first time in my whole entire life that I have been offered to drink alcohol! I am Soooo Blesssed!
Alright were walking down the street, I really like to make eye contact with people so then I can say HI buenos dias or whatever, so I make eye contact with this sorta old guy, and He just looks at me and SAYs loudly, Mentiroso, which means liar, and he just kept saying it, we decided to just keep walking, but it hit me, somebody is calling me a liar for what I believe in, thats a first, It was an interesting expierence.
Alright and than yesterday, we had this awesomely spirtual fireside in a stake center east of my area, all the missionaries sang a few songs for this meeting, it was really powerful, we sang How great thou art, if ya get a minute read the 3rd verse, soo powerful. I know with all my heart that Jesus Crist died for all of us, he suffiered for you and for me, so that we could live with him, in so much happiness and peace above all imagination, FOREVER. I know this. Anyways when it got over this cute little peruvian girl came over to me and asked me for my autograph, so I signed Elder Marshall! it was great!
Carlos: hes still doing great he didnt get baptized cause his cousin died and he had to leave town for a few days but were looking at the 27 or the 4th
Francisco: Hes doing soo goood, he came to church early and greeted everyone he also talks more than everyone in priesthood legit, he will be baptized on the 4th as well
WE had 5 investigadors and 4 Menos activos come to Church this past sunday which was SOOOO GREAT!!!!
I love this work, Thank you for writing me and praying for me, If you have any questions, or im not writing these letters as well as you want me to, like feel free to complain. But I love all of you back home!!!! Keep being Good yah!
Love Elder Marshall
Oh also i learned my missionary comission in spanish the other day here it is
Soy llamado de Dios
Mi autoridad esta por encima de todos los reinos de la tierra. Por revalacion he sido selcionado como un representante personal del senor Jesucristo. El es me maestro, y el me ha escogido como su humilde siervo. Para ponerme en su lugar. Para decir y hacer lo que el diria o haria si el personalmente estuviera ministrando a la gente a la cual el me ha enviado.
Mi voz es su voz y mis actos son sus sctos mis palabras son sus palabras y mi doctrina es su doctrina
Mi comision es lo que hacer el ha hecho. Dicer lo que el ha dicho. Para ser un testigo actual de su palabra en su grande y marviollsa obra en estos ultimosos dias.
Cuan Grande es mi llamamiento!
I hope that was right! ahh i love that so much, look it up in english if you dont know spanish, its incrediblE
