Hey how has everything been going this week? I didn’t know you had church at 1:30 wow that pretty late. I bet no one has the excuse that it’s to early to make it to church though. Your temple trip sounds like it was pretty amazing. I always love going to the temple now. It makes the rest of our week go great. So how is every one liking school? I bet everyone is ready for the Christmas break. It will be here pretty quick. Everything has been going great here. April got baptized on Friday and confirmed on Sunday. It was a great service. She was real excited for it. Her mom and sister came to the baptism too. They thought it was great. We are going to be starting to teach them now too. We had already given them a copy of the book of Mormon and they liked it a lot. It’s been a really busy week for me. Elder Ulrich and I left Memphis on Tuesday night and didn’t come back until Thursday morning. It was great being out of the city for a while. I miss being out in the country. It’s been a year now since I left Pocahontas and went to Collierville. I haven’t really gotten to serve in the country since. Senatobia is bigger than Pocahontas was, but it was still real nice. We went to their district meeting and then we spent all of Wednesday with them. Thursday was a pretty crazy day for us. We left Senatobia by 7, and had to go to South Haven. The set of missionaries there didn’t answer their phone the night before during call-ins, so we had to go make sure they were still ok. We got there and we found out one of the missionaries there wanted to go home. So we talked to him for a little bit (He is doing a lot better now. They had a baptism Saturday.) Then we drove back to Memphis. When we got there, Elder Andreasen told me one of the members needed our help to finish one of the cakes she was making that she had to deliver in a couple hours and couldn’t find any one to help her. She lives down in Mississippi. So we had to take Elder Ulrich and his companion all the way up to Walnut Grove, Then drive back to Memphis and finally get down to the members house to help her. All that before 10:00. The cake she was making was huge. It was over 4 feet tall and took Elder Andreasen and me both to carry it. And it took us two trips. Sister Browder told us it probably weighed about 200 pounds. It was huge. And it was all for a 1 year old’s birthday. That took most of our day. We didn’t finally get back to our area till about 5. Sunday was really great for us. We had 7 investigators at church, and a whole bunch of kids. There were a couple less active families that came that we have been working with too. We just started teaching a new family. That was 5 of the investigators. We are real excited for them. We are going to be inviting them to be baptized on Tuesday. It’s been a great week for us. I’m going on exchanges with Elder Hansen this week. He is one of the Assistants to the President. He is going to be with us for a couple days. That will be fun. Well I hope everything is going great there. Thanks for everything. I hope ya’ll have a great week.
Love Elder Marshall
