This is Elder Wardell's letter from June 23rd.
weeeeell, lets see, so last week on pday we had a fund day of smash face, which is just ultimate dodgeball. its amazing. haha we all were less than happy about that decision when we went out to work that night. but we have since repented and will be treating ourselves to another game today. haha
the best thing that happened this week was the fact that we got to go to the temple!!!! it was so amazing and the temple is soo beautiful here. it was a good way to say goodbye to president and sister anderson, because they are goin to be finishing their mission here pretty soon.
so we have some pretty solid investigators who are going to be baptised this sunday!!!! yeah buddy! they super awesome. we cant wait to dunkem.
well, im driving these last two weeks, and for the first time in my life i hate driving. hahaha miami drivers are pretty different. ahaa. definitely need to stay on your toes. but its fine :) spirit of the lord will always protect us.
well we got rained on. again. ahaha im starting to get used to the weather, but its takin some time. and there is one thing i like, the thunder. miami has some epic thunder sometimes and its really cool.
sadly, Elder Marshall and i are starting the last two weeks of trainging together, and he will most likely be getting transferred at the end of this transfer. If he does, ill sure miss him cuz he is awesome!
well, love yall thats the scoop.
