April 15th-22nd, 2013

Hey guys,

thanks for the updates. dad it´s good to hear that your back is feeling better. I hope it keeps going like that. Sounds like the jackie robinson was pretty good seeing that you both made comments about it. put it on reserve for me. it sounds like we will do skype on the 12th then. it will be in the late afternoon. i´ll tell you the exact time next week just remind me what account i should call. I can´t remember which one it was, i think dads.

this week was interesting. I went to temazcal to do divisiones and saw some beautiful scenery. i´ll send the pictures but the members are horrible there. We visited like five or six inactives and they all started to tell us how bad the bishop was and that they were never going to go back to church because of the bishop. So last night i was commenting all of this to the stake president and he starts to tell me that its really not like that, that all the members there are liars and the members made the last two bishops go inactive. haha the culture is completely different in temazcal. it´s only an hour from tierra blanca but completely different. It was a weird experience. This week we couldn´t get the mom of roberto to sign the cedula so we are going to baptize him this upcoming week. the mom said that today she would sign the cedula so we are going to go see her later tonight. we are also going to baptize jasmin. she has been in the teaching pool for awhile but has finally agreed to get married (there are a ton of problems with the law of chastity here in tierra blanca, it´s out of control haha) but she is really poor so me and my companion are going to pay for the wedding. This week on tuesday we are going to have a zone class because we only baptized 3 this last week in the zone. we are going to try to motivate them so they work harder. and then on friday we are going to have a multi zone conference in tuxtepec. I´m excited. tomorrow i´m going to teach the elders a little about spiritual gifts and that they need to recognize their spirtitual gifts and try to develop them so they can be better missionaries. I was inspired by a presidente eyering talk from the last conference when he talked about his boys and their spiritual gifts and the importance of recognizing them in those we serve.

well i really don´t have much else to say other than i´m excited to talk with you guys on mothers day and i´m still working hard and loving the mission. you guys didn´t ask me any questions this week! usually the questions help me think of things to say haha.
i´m happy to be serving jesus christ full time as a missionary and i know through the power of the holy ghost that he lives and loves everyone of us and that heavenly father has a plan for us. He cares about the small things in our life and wants us to be happy. Nevertheless we are free to choose and we can choose to make good decisiones and be happy or not. I hope you have a great week!

mom, tell the ward that i miss them but am doing great here in the mission and that my testimony has grown a lot. Other than that just tell them whatever you want haha.

well i´ll talk to you next week!

love elder broadhead
