Hey how is everyone doing this week? Is everyone getting excited to
be getting out of school pretty soon? Everyone is out here.
Graduation was today. That’s awesome that the family just got
baptized. There name is the Garcias? Is it a Hispanic family?
That’s great to have a new family in the ward. It hasn’t been
raining very much till today. We still haven’t been anywhere close to
seeing a tornado. Today its raining though. We were over by the
church playing soccer in a field with a bunch of missionaries. It
started raining about half way through. We decided to keep playing
though. It was a lot of fun. We were all soaked by the end of the
game. There were a lot of mud spots too so that was a lot of fun.
Last Monday night we got a pretty crazy phone call. Temeka has been
trying to move to another house, but she hasn’t been able to get a
truck to help her move. We had set everything up for the ward to go
help her move on Thursday. She and her family have been living in the
new house though. They just had her beds there. Well the land lord
for the other house got told that it had been abandoned so he decided
he was going to go and take all of her stuff out so he could rent it
out. He tore everything out of the house. Beds, fridge, clothes,
pictures, social security cards, everything… He threw everything out
in the street. It was in the evening time too. We got a call from her
at about 7:30. People had already started digging through it taking
what they wanted. Nicer things like her fridge were already gone.
She was pretty upset because they didn’t have much to start out with.
We couldn’t go over until Tuesday morning and we helped her get
everything that was left. She has been through a whole lot lately.
She is doing a lot better now though. Besides that everything is
going great here. Elder Arnold and I are doing great together. Well I hope everything is going great for you. I hope everyone is having fun in their last
couple weeks of school. I love you
Love Elder Marshall
