June 17th-24th, 2013

Hey guys, it sounds like you had a great time on your vacations and ash sounds like she is doing good. as well i was happy to get e mails from tara and dustin this week. sounds like everyone is well and that makes me happy. i hope your first day on the job is going well mom!

tara that training yesterday was awesome!! i cannot even beging to describe how much i loved it. it was way cool the way they used the videos and i especially loved that last one about pres. monson. I always get teary eyed when i listen to him talk because i dedicate everyday to telling people about how amazing it is that we have a prophet of god on earth today. and that´s why i love to hear him speak, because he lives up to everything that i say about him. I get so excited to listen to the apostoles and prophets it is such a great opportunity and i am dobly excited becasue the liahona got to us down here this week, so i have been studying the conference messages as well. wow these men are soo inspired. all that new stuff about the computers and facebook and open chapels is not going to make it down here for a while haha. i hope it gets here before i finish my mission but well see. but what they said is true, the world is changing and we have to change the way we do missionary work. me and my zone are already starting. on wednesday we are going to have a zone class to start this new transfer and we are going to put the goal to activate every one of the converts of 2013 in the zone. here in the zone there have been a ton of baptisims, but too few converts. we are going to go look for these baptisms and teach them the gospel until they get converted. the other piece of news is that because of the massive influx of missionaries, here in my ward they are going to send another pair of missionaries. we will be four now in the ward and we are going to divide the area. we already found them a good house to live in and i am excited because the missonary that is going to come was my second district leader, when i started my mission in 3 valles. he´s a good guy and missionary.

we also went to veracruz on wednesday because we had a mision lider training conference. it was awesome. i sure do love president treviƱo he is amazing. i´m throughouly convinced that he´s gotta be the best president of mission there is and i´m sure he will be the next area seventy to come out of mexico.

we had a baptism on sunday that was good. the kids we baptized are awesome but there parents are so-so. we´ll continue working with them to try and help them change. well i am happy and working hard here in tierra blanca. thank you for your prayers and support i will never forget it.

the pictures are of us in the baptism, me washing my clothes. (sometimes we have to do it by hand) and my companion and the ward mission leader, jorge, with somethings that is called elote. it is corn on the cob on a stick with mayonesa and hot sause and lemon haha. they love it down here. it´s the only thing from nacho libre that is true about mexico haha.

love elder broadhead
