May 13th-20th, 2013

hey guys,
well first off thanks for the e mails this week. they were really good. Ash thanks for the spiritual thoughts, and dad as well, thanks for the advice. don´t worry though, i work hard every minute of the day, i know that the time i have left is not much and i try to take advantage. mom what kind of job did you apply for? sounds like you guys had a great trip to boston. i jeaous. glad to hear that the family is doing good and that scott could get baptized.
this week mi and my new companion elder offer hall worked a lot. and we tried hard to complete with the standard of excellence of the mission and we almost did it. that just means fill all the goals for the key  that the mission has. this week in the zone we didnt have any baptisms. thats called a blanqeza. i feel a little bad cause it the first one this zone has had in like a year. but oh well, i am excited to try to help the zone improve. i feel like i have developed good leadership skills lately. it hard cause there is no part in preach my gospel that tells you how to be a good leader, you just have to learn from experience, the scriptures, and through the spirit. i feel like now i am really helping the elders be better missionaries and improve every day. that makes me feel good. me and my companion get a long really well and work good together. sometimes we are not on the same page when we teach, but that comes with more time together. this week has been incredibly hot . right now we are at 113 degrees farenheit plus the humidity hjah i have never felt this kind of heat before haha. but we try to avoid it at all costs, but sometimes we cant.
this week we had a few investigators go to church, so we were happy and this week, julian, has his baptismal date. he is the brother of david, one that we baptized a few weeks ago. we are surely but slowly finding more and more people that god has prepared for us to baptize. i have really developed a love for teaching the gospel and helping people. i also love studying the scriptures and the liahona. i used to never read the church magazines before, but they´re awesome i really missed out. i am also working to develop more christ like attributes. something that has helped me is just asking myself, every time i have a dicision to make, what will god think of me? what will god think of me if i do this, or say this or act in this way? it has helped me a lot become more like christ in everyday dicisions. a lot of times we worry about what other people are going to think or going to say instead of thinking what will god think of us if we make a certain decision.
well all in all im happy and working hard and trying my best to fulfill the missionary purpose. i love you all and am happy to be part of your family. keep up the good work.

love elder broadhead
