General Conference! Let me tell you! Saturday, I watched both sessions in Portuguese. It was good, I understood a good amount, almost all of it, but the only thing is that the voices are strange. You see Elder Holland shaking and bawling his eyes out about the expiation and the voice of the translator is completely tranquil. I didn~t like it as much, but maybe I~m just biased. On Sunday, they had another room where we could watch it in English. Sister Andersen and I watched it and it was so good :)
So today we have mini P-Day because in 2 days, we~re going to an amuzement park as a zone! WOOOO!!!!! We had a zone meeting this morning, it was all kinds of awesome. Learned a lot. Grew a lot. Ready to go back out and work.
As far as the language is concerned. Dude. It~s hard.
Like, really hard. The mission is teaching me a lot about patience, because I know I~m learning REALLY ..like really... fast. I~ve only been here for 3 months and for the most part I can hold a conversation-ish, but it still is really hard because you want so bad to express yourself, or share something, but you get stuck on the dumbest things. But its whatever. We went to the zone meeting, and my president pulled me aside, and he was like... sister marshall, congrats! and i was like... thanks! what for? and he told me that my portugues is fantastic and that you can barely tell I have an accent. I know I~m getting extra help from the good old Senhor. Thats for sure. But still, It~s hard. But then again, life is hard, so I guess I~ll just keep keepin on!
As far as everything else goes. This week was pretty awesome! We~re looking for new people to teach, since our teaching pool GOT BAPTIZED ;) And other than that, yeah, it~s just a lot of searching, a lot of praying, a lot of faith, and a lot of obedience. The missions the best. Everyone should do it.
My companion will be going home super soon, so we~re just kickin our heels to do work!
Love you family!
