Mowing a lawn with a machete!

Hey Family!

Another great week has come and gone here in El Salvador! We had changes this week. I'm still here in Santo Tomas but I have a new companion. His name is Elder Flores and he's from Honduras. He has been in the mission for 20 months and so he's got a lot of good stuff that I can learn! This week was a little hard because a lot of our visits fell through and we had to stop teaching a few people because they decided they didn't want to listen to us anymore haha. But that's all part of the mission. We tried getting some new investigators and found a few positive ones in the streets. So hopefully we can see the fruits of these children of our Heavenly Father and help them prepare for baptism. On Saturday we had a pretty cool service project. We cleaned up the area of a hospital clinic area. The people were pretty happy. I got to do my old outside house job of mowing the lawn....except with a machete haha. I haven't seen a lawnmower for 9 months! Then yesterday when we were walking to a visit we passed a weird rain dance thing going on. We didn't stop to watch so I was really confused. There were guys in these weird costumes that looked really creepy dancing around with machetes and umbrellas....There were also a bunch of people selling really cool stuff for tourists buuuuut it was Sunday so I didn't get anything. That's pretty much everything for this week. I wish I had a cool funny story to share...maybe next week. I love and miss you all! 

Love Elder Markham

A few pictures from bowling...Garrett had to send his score cause he, Brock and Brad are always in competition of who can get the best score!

Elder Custodio (Garrett's trainer) went home...Garrett is going to miss him!

  1. Salvador, the colonial capital of Brazil and the current capital of the Brazilian state of Bahia is a favorite tourist destination. It has all the conveniences and infrastructure that a modern city offers and an easygoing, friendly and fun loving population.commercial financing
