Temple Square (East 1 District)


Sister Shalora Marotz

Time passes on Square

Another week goes by at Temple Square. Last week on Saturday we had a meeting with our Zone Leaders to talk about this upcoming transfer. All the district leaders and their companions came and we discuss our goals for the new transfer. We do our best to set realistic and achievable goals for teaching and helping others come closer to Christ.

On Sunday was my first shift at the Family History Library. Our job as missionaries was to help visitors get started in their family history or learn more about their ancestors. It was really fun. I love to see others reactions when they find something new about their personal history. Especially when they learn that they come from more places then they realize. Family History is truly an amazing thing.

Monday was Mission Leadership Council. This is a meeting with all the leaders of the mission. This included my companion who was the district leader. I went on exchanges with another Sister named Sister Li from Hong Kong. We spent the morning studying together and then had a shift at the conference center. She was super sweet. She is the only member in her family and is hopeful that one day her family will be able to discover the gospel and embrace it in their lives.

Not much else happened this week. We were able to give a few tours and help people learn more about the history of the church. With RootsTech this weekend we will have a few more people on square then we normally do. There are so many people that we can help on square even if it is less busy. We even met a couple that used to serve as mission president is England.

On Thursday, Sister Marotz had departing song practice. She will perform it with all the other homebound sisters at the last sunday of the transfer. That night we also had the ASL meeting. There is a meeting ever transfer for each main language. We talk about the best ways to work in unity as a companionship and really help the people we are teaching. We also found out that this Sunday we would all be able to attend a deaf Ward. I am really excited to go even if I don't quite understand ASL. So many exciting things to come.

The last news that I have is that Sister Marotz hurt her calves. We aren't really sure what she did, but her legs are really sore and it is hard for her to walk. Hopefully she gets better with a little bit of time. That's all I have for this week. I'll talk to you all later!
