September 10th-17th, 2012

hey guys,
thanks for all the emails and everything! i got gramps too, sounds like everything is going along ok with you guys, i still pray for you all the time!
this week was mas o menos we didn`t baptize, our fecha didn`t come through. she is named alejandra y lives very far, we have to take a 15 minute bus ride to arrive to her house. we couldn`t see her all week because she works a lot and she didn`t come to church. but this ward is great because siempre someone comes to church that we didn`t plan on cause the ward is so grande one of the people usually manages to bring someone. another one of our investigatores named dyra came and her baptism is schedules for this saturday. she sixteen and her mom is member but not her dad. she`s an antigua investigadora de los elderes que were here before me. so this week we`re going to work with the other one that came to church (alejandra) to try and baptize her after the services this sunday. me and e charles both talked in church yesterday, his was pretty classic with his spanish. i actually got a little nervous cause i`m not used to this big of a ward but it went fine haha.
me and e charles get a long pretty well and we laugh a lot. we were walking in the streeet two days ago and someone stopped us and started waving a book of mormon in front of our faces and said that he wanted us to come by his house. the only thing is that he is missing one hand, but he doesn`t seem to care haha. he makes lots of hand motions and uses it a lot to illustrate points while he talks haha. it`s pretty funny but anyways we went to look for his house that day and we couldn`t find it cause ni yo ni mi companero know the area very well haha. so we had to start asking people if they knew were the guy lived that only had one hand haha and we eventually found it. he didn`t come to church though so we have to drop him. he`s a pretty classic guy though.
today we did a pretty good cleaning job on the house, it was pretty nasty. it`s alwasy nice having an american companion cause they value cleanliness haha. also we found this cafeteria dentro de sam`s club that is way good cause it`s all american haha so we`re gonna hit it up again tody haha.
mom`s questions. my comp is from arizona. yes we still walk everywhere and take buses that are pretty crazy and classic. the walking is taking a toll on my feet i have several ingrown toenails but there`s never enough time to go to the doctor haha. and no, i haven`t been sick yet on the mission, aparte de some minor coughs and colds. there hasn`t been a day where i haven`t left the house to work and i hope to keep it that way. and your idea about the chirstmas thing is just fine mom, gracias.
i have tons more that i alwasy want to tell you but there is no time! i am learning a lot and loving everything! i absolutely love, love studying the gospel, the only good part about getting home is going to be able to study whatever i want instead of for my investigatores haha.
the question that i ask everyday to the members that we eat with, is what was your missionary experience this past week? and i feel like i should direct it at you guys too! if you haven`t had one, look for one and constantly share your testimony!
i love you all and apreciate everything thanks for it! have a great week!
the pics are of my area, and my companion taking a pee in the bushes haha i alwasy take pictures when my comps pee in the wild haha.
-love elder broadhead
