March 18th-25th, 2013


Hi guys i hope you are all having a great time on your vacation! So Dustin went too? I´ll be anxious to hear all the funny stories after haha. Dad i hope you get feeling better! and in my opinion i think you dedicated a ton of time to your family, i have tons of good memories spending time with you. There are tons of men who hardly know their kids and i see it here everyday. the men here have to work so much because they hardly don´t pay them anything that they don´t spend anytime with their family. That wasn´t the case with you. Don´t worry so much, we´re not perfect but you sure are a great dad. Ask any one else in the family and you´ll get the same response. You´ve already understood well the purpose of life so just keep going strong!

This week i got pretty sick. I had to go the hospital but now i´m better so don´t worry. It was something with the stomach and i only went to the hospital cause i got dihydradted. so i couldn´t work too much this week. But we are now three companions! our new companion is called E. gonzalez and he is from the domincan republic. yes he´s black haha and he talks spanish like they talk english en the southern united states haha. He´s always way happy and keeps us laughing. He is just going to be with us for a week more and then he´ll get assigned to a different area for the next transfer. It´s still been pretty hard for us to find people to teach. But my companion and I have thought a lot about it and we´ve come up with some ways to get more references and to stay more focused. when we used to contact everyone in the street siempre we were focused. but now a lot of the time we start talking about anything in the street and we get distracted and can´t listen to the promptings of the spirit as well. so i think we are letting a lot of the escogidos pass by us and we don´t even realize it. we are going to try to work mas focused this week to be able to contact the people in the street that are ready for us. we are continuing to work with marsalino but he has kind of gone cold on us. he didn´t go to church this week. we are trying to teach leo but it is also really hard because his house is alwasy wild and it´s hard to have a spiritual lesson. we can baptize him, but he´ll just go inactive after, so we are going to hold out a little longer. If we don´t baptize this week this will be the first month of my mission in mexico that i don´t baptize. this area has been the hardest of my mission. But i´m not desanimado or anything, i´m happy to be working and i know that i´m having succes becasue a lot of times i feel the spirit testifying to people through me. I try hard to serve everyone. I have a lot of high hopes for this week, it could be my last in this area. It was nice to see alot of the hermanas of the ward brought me food when i got sick. I have a lot of time here so they all know me and i felt good knowing that they care. I said to my companion, if only they brought us references like they bring us food haha.

well i gotta get going, one of the members here is going to take us to a chiropractor that is going to give us a good stretching haha. the member wanted to take us because he thinks we have back problems haha we just said ok sounds good to us, lets go.

everything is normal here and i continue happy and working. i love you all.

mom the water in the tanks doesn´t get drinken. its just to shower and wash dishes.

love elder broadhead
