Dear Family and Friends,
When I opened up that picture email, I freaked out. That's great news! I don't know if they're going to keep me the rest of the transfer or not, but it's okay if they keep me a little bit longer :)
This week has been crazy. We've met with A a lot because he GOT BAPTIZED on Saturday. A so funny. So at his baptism he wanted H, a tiny chinese convert, to baptize him. They were in the middle of the baptism and H slipped, so he ended up dropping him in the font and so I heard a huge thud and then looked in the mirror to see him flailing around . So funny but it was a really nice spirtual experience. He got confirmed yesterday and also received the priesthood that way he could go to the temple this week before he goes back to India. He rocks. We spent most of the week working with him, ironing out any concerns that he has. He'll be going back to India on the 15th. I'm jealous. I want to go to India, but I'll have to save that trip for when I get home haha. We've met with several other people this week. We started teaching this kid, J. He's chinese and he calls us his "foreign friends". He's really funny. And Y is really cute too. She's also chinese, and really interested. We teach a lot of chinese people in these parts. It's great teaching people who have zero background in religion, so it's been really fun, crazy, and sometimes confusing.
We're teaching this guy, T. T rocks. He'll be getting baptized on the 23rd, and P, she is getting baptized on Saturday, so we're really excited about that. It's nice being in Ann Arbor still so that I can go to her baptism! P is the best!!
Thanks for the package, I just got it a few minutes ago. I will start sending some things home, my winter things/ anything else that i might send home, and I might buy another suitcase later today. I'll give you a heads up when president gives me the news. christmas, i don't know what i want. I'll write you later if I think of anything. Thanks for everything, I really appreciate it. I'll send you a few pics later.
Love, Sister Marshall
