Hey guys,It was great to hear from you this week. Sounds like it was a good week and that you are going to have a fun trip en boston. I´ll be using the skype account of my companion. his account is, ElderParedes11 but you never told me what account to call! do i call ashley´s account or how do i do it? also i´m not too sure that the hermana will have the latest skype downloaded, remember that we are in mexico over here. Well i´m sure everything will work out fine. i´ll be doing it at six o clock mexico veracruz time on sunday the twelvth. It´s gonna be fun to talk to you guys again! By the way, how is everything going for the baptism of scott?
This week was pretty crazy. We went to veracruz on thursday for the zone leaders counsel but now it´s just called council of leaders because now there are girl missionary leaders haha. since there are a lot of misioneras getting here they made sister missionary leadership positions. they just do divisiones with the other sisters. But saturday night, when we were going to the house of pedro with elder sanches to do the baptismal interview, we got there and pedro and his wife were just leaving because the grandma of pedro had gotten sick and they had to take her to veracruz! yikes! he said he wasn´t going to get back until sunday in the night. There wasn´t anything we could do. We were already fasting for him and praying a lot so he could get baptized. we just told him that if he got back early enough on sunday we could do the baptism. he said ok. so yesterday night we were at the church in a meeting with our district leaders when he sent us a message that said he had gotten back to tierra blanca. we hustled to his house, did the interview, and he got baptized. it was a miracle.
This week i have been thinking a lot about a scripture in juan 17 3 that says that life eternal is knowing the father and christ. There is another scripture in doctrine and convenants 132 22-24 that says knowing christ is accepting him while being here on the earth, or, getting baptized. I have been thinking about what it would be like to really know christ, to know how he really looks, how his laugh sounds, what´s his voice like, if he´s serious or a jokester, or what we would talk about if we had some time together. In these last few days, thinking about this, i´ve really felt a desire to get to know him better. I am excited to be able to really get to know him one day in the celestial kingdom, to be able to sit down and spend time with him. But i´m going to start thinking about him more, especially during the day. the assitents came this last week to do divisiones with us, and elder fox suggested that i could think more about christ and his atonement, especially throughouth the day and that i would feel a diferent spirit come into my life. and it´s true. I invite you guys to do the same.
Well that´s about it for this week. i´m happy and working hard here in tierra blanca. we are going to baptize jesus, niño, this week and we are excited. it´s the last week of the cambio and so next tuesday i´ll be getting a new companions. elder paredes has been here for six months, so he´s gonna get transfered.
thanks for everything, i love you guys. talk to you on sunday!
love elder broadhead
on sunday remind me to tell you about carnaval and the mangos.
