Three Weeks

June 25

I got the package! Thank you for all of the 'hugs!" They were great to read :) Thanks for the early birthday gifts.  I will put them to good use.  Don't forget E Simpson's birthday is at the end of the month.  You should mail things before transfers on the 24th.  I think that is also his actual birthday.  My district really enjoyed the card games. We played phase 10 for a while the other day. That was a lot of fun. I can't remember how to play nerts... I am going to have to see if I can find some instructions for it or someone can send them to me.

Happy Birthday to the best dad in the world!

Thanks Jessica for the wonderful doodles... they make me smile.

I like my area. I am still getting use to it.  I hate white washing because neither of us know anything about the area, and neither of us know the investigators. Most of the time missionaries pride themselves in white washing an area, but I feel like we have too much interrupted service
, but the Lord put us both here for a reason, so we will work.

I'm in a ward. Elder Krizin and I cover basically everything north of 21st and a little bit more, and the sisters cover everything south of 21st. We cover the same ward. 

That's great to hear that Austins papers are in to the Bishop! I'm excited for him. Maybe He'll come to the TLM and I'll train him. :) 

Well I don't really have anything to say. I'm exhausted, and my mind is empty. I am grateful for the gospel. Life is better when the Lord is on your side.

I have a ton of stamps. I am not very good at writing people back. I love them and I want them to know I am grateful for the letters, but I really just suck at writing. If I had to write you once a week I would probably break my hand so I didn't have to hand write anymore... 

I love you,
Elder Marshall

Hello everyone-
I am sure by now all of you have seen the picture of me with a bandage on my finger.  If not, it is on facebook and thank you Jessica Swapp for taking care of that for mom.  Some things she is great at and others...well lets just say I love my momma. I thought y'all would enjoy the picture. The ward sure opened up to me on Sunday. Usually when someone gives them the "Bird" they close off, but they all loved it. I had so many pictures taken of me!

It is really hard to type.... I finally got good at using all of my fingers and now I can't use one. I am okay :) I am glad Sister 
Augustin  was able to call and let you know I am alright.  I do feel good at least the Sisters were at our door and could take us right away to the hospital. My Dr was great. She had me come back last night, Sunday, When she began her shift so she could look at it rather than hand me off to someone else. She said it should be fine and it will heal up well. The color was in the tip of my finger so it shouldn't fall off :)

I Don't know if Sister Augustin told you what happened or not. I was putting on my companions front bike tire, and it has disk brakes. (I would send a picture, but I forgot my cord.) We spun the tire to get it to true up, and then I was going to pinch it down to keep it in alignment.  When I pushed the lever down my finger got caught in the disk (there are holes in it)  and it cut me. I have a pretty good laceration and a fracture of the distal phalanx.

Happy Birthday DAN!!!!!!!!!!!! I hope he liked his stuffed shells.  Italian food is what he loves the most. Happy birthday to Uncle Steve and Ha Ora Hewlen, I can't believe he is one, not Uncle Steve!  And of course...Happy Happy Birthday Austin!!

We had a lot of fun this past week. We worked at the food bank a lot to help them get ready for the week they are having off. It is nice to be able to do service.
Sorry I would type more, but it's hard... I keep hitting my finger on the keyboard.

The church is true.  Everyone should hand out pass along card, feed missionary, have discussions in your home and pray for missionaries.
I love you,
elder Marshall

Hey, I don't have much I want to talk about. I'm kinda frustrated right now. I spent well over an hour in a drs office to talk to him for about 2 minutes. I understand they're busy, but it bugs me. I have never been good at hurry up and wait! My finger is healing well.

My finger is good. I have to keep the bandage off as much as possible. it is weird cause it looks gross, at least that's what everyone else says.

That's good to hear that Austin had a good birthday. The card I sent is pretty funny... Pirates always make me laugh.  I hope he enjoyed it.

I don't have anything super great that has been happening.  

Well. I wish I had something exciting to say... but I don't. I'm really just emailing so you know I'm alive.  

Jesus wants us for Sunbeams...share your light with someone this week.

I love you,
Elder Marshall
