November 26th-December 3rd, 2012

hey fam,

thanks for the updates and all. it was good to hear from dustin, even if it was a five worder haha. yeah mom now i´m feeling fine, don´t worry, not sick anymore.
tell gramps that i wish him a happy birthday and that i love him and am grateful for the great example that he is for me and the whole family.
tara good luck with this guy problem, try not to worry about it so much, it´s something i´ve learned in the mission is that stressing out doesn´t do any good. two scriptures that come to mind. men are that they might have joy, and this life is a time for men to prepare to meet god. in few words these scriptures sum up everything we have to worry about in this life.
this week i got to know my area a little bit. my companions are elder garcia from mexico and elder mielnikovicz from argentina, it´s nice having a companion with a harder name to say than mine haha. elder garcia goes home next week, and elder mielnikoviwcz goes home at the end of this transfer, so i´ll be "killing them" both, as it´s said in the mission and next transfer i´ll get a new comp. it is a little weird being around these two that are about to go home haha but they´re still working good. we have a lot of fun and laugh a lot. e. garcia was the trainer of my mtc companion elder wirthlin and i already know him from when i was in foraneos. this week e garcia just went and did divisiones with half of the zone and me and e mielnikoviwc stayed here in volcanes and worked. we´ll be doing the same this week. the ward is good and i like it. we have a really good ward mission leader. the new young mens president of the ward is a missionary that just got back from serving in utah and his trainer was my mtc teacher. small world i know. it was cool to talk with him and continue working with him.
this week we get to go to the temple and have a small conferencia navideña! we are pretty excited. thanks for sending a package i´ll be on the look out for it! i´ll buy you all christmas gifts before i go home, but you´ll have to wait a little bit for em haha.
the kid named adrian we were going to baptize this week, couldn´t because his mom doesn´t give him permission. he is sixteen years old and really wants to get baptized. we´ll talk to the mom this week. we have another baptism planned for this week named omar. i think he just wants to get baptized for a better shot at a girl in our ward haha. but he understands everything we teach him just fine so we are more than happy to baptize him.he´s a good guy.
i´ve had a few chances to get to know the zone this week, we had a clase de zona on wednesday and a consejo de lideres de distrito yesterday. i have ten companionsips in the zone and they are mostly all pretty good elderes. this zone had a bad month last month and i´m excited to try and help us do better this month. today we are going to have a zone activity, and i´m sure you can already guess that when i´m in charge of it, there will be food involved haha so we decided to go to a buffet for the activity haha.
the house i´m in is by far the best i´ve ever had. we have a big fridge and a washer and dryer. it´s like living in heaven.
hey for the call home i think i will be doing it on the 24th about midday or so. its a monday and so it will be p day. might do it on the 25th. i´ll let you know for sure next week. what number should i call?? well just do it like last time, i call then you call me back, is it ok like that?
love you all and thanks for everything

love, elder broadhead
