We are walking back to the boat after visiting Victoria.
I got these next pictures mixed up. When we went to dinner the night of the 17th our waiter brought us a little dessert and sang us a love song for our anniversary. It had a candle in it and we got to blow it out. We thought that was nice of them.
This is a big chuck of ice in the water. The ship had to go by a whole bunch of these to get to the Glacier.

Hey how has your week been going? How has getting ready to go back to school been going? Is it still pretty hot there? It hasn’t been to hot here. Its supposed to be getting cooler this week too. That will be nice. So when does school start? Is it this week or next week? It started a couple of weeks ago here. Everything has been going good here for us. We have been staying real busy. I was with Elder Smith again this week. We had meetings again. We had the last one on Friday. They were really good. The missionary department is putting a lot of emphasis on teaching skills. So we were doing a lot with that. Pete went to the temple on Friday. He got baptized back in April. The ward did a trip for all the new converts and the youth in the ward. We weren’t able to go, but we heard it was really good. Pete said he had a great time. We have just sarted working with a new family. The Martin family. The wife has been coming to church for a couple weeks now. She is the granddaughter of a member in the ward. The husband came for the first time this week. We went and saw them yesterday. She is a member already. She has been to the temple to do baptisms and everything. Its just been a while since she had come. The husband though isn’t a member. When we went over yesterday, he started telling us how he wants to go to the temple with his wife and get married there. That kindof surprised us. Most people we talk to don’t know much about the temple at all. Before we left, He told us he wanted to get baptized too. He wanted to set a day that he could get baptized before we left. It was great. We are hoping to see him get baptized before one of us gets transferred. That’s coming up in about two weeks. I think the 4th is the last day of the transfer. Well I hope you have a great week.
Love Elder Marshall
Quote of the week: “Patience is not passive resignation, nor is it failing to act because of our fears. Patience means active waiting and enduring. It means staying with something and doing all that we can—working, hoping, and exercising faith; bearing hardship with fortitude, even when the desires of our hearts are delayed. Patience is not simply enduring; it is enduring well!”
-Elder Dieter F. Uchtdorf
