August 27th-September 3rd, 2012

hey fam,

thanks for the mail and updates!

well the big news is that i´m being transferred to a place called camino real, and i´ll be the district leader over there. there has been a ton of changes in the mission this cambio, all of the old zones got split up, and reaorganized was the whole mission to create new zones since now the mission is smaller and new missionaries are continually arriving. areas are beig split and new/old ones are being reopened/created. my new area will be in the zone mexico veracruz. i think it is in the city veracruz, or just outside of, if i´m right. its definitely in the northern part though. i´ll have more information about that next week. my companion will be e. charles. this elder either just finished the 12 week training program, or i will be teaching him the second half, i´m not sure right now but i´ll find out tomorrow! either way he´s pretty new. i´m not gonna lie i was hoping for a mexican companion but i´m sure elder charles is great. i´m a little nervous to be district leader but i´m excited for the opportunity to learn and get better. also a little sad to leave tres valles.

this saturday we baptized cindy. she is really great and one year from now when her and her husband and baby go to the temple, me and elder wheeler can accompany them! that´s gonna be pretty cool, i´m way excited for that, they just gotta stay strong in the church! last night they invited us over to their house and made us hot cakes! their baby jacobo is a cute little guy. we also confirmed miguel, the niño that we baptized two weeks ago. the look on his face was great after he got confirmed haha. i think that´s one of my favorite things of the mission, is the look on the faces of the investigatores right after they´re confirmed/recieve the holy ghost. they´re alwasy so happy and filled with the spirit. it´s inspiring and good motivation to continue working.

we had a good week and i was trying really hard to fill the tank of investigatores so that my companion and his new companion, which he will be training a bran new missionary, have tons of baptisms.

president of the mission is trying to start a new thing where we solamente work through references, and we don´t proselyte at all. it´s pretty bold and it will take time but we are going to start working with the members more. he has put on the temple interview questions, have you given a reference to the missionaries this month? crazy stuff i know, but he´s a bold guy.

change is alwasy good and exciting and i´m alwasy going to work hard and baptize no importa where i am. now i just have to keep my elders in the district motivated and baptizing.

i love you all and pray for you much. have a great week and keep loving life with a postivite attitude. love ya!

love elder broadhead
