July 22-29th, 2013

hey guys,

thanks for the emails. sounds like the butler days went well and was a lot of work. it was also good to hear from dust.

this week was pretty average. we worked hard and found some really good new people to teach. the bad part was that they didn´t go to church. only one. but it´s ok because we have been working with the DIF and registro civil ( they are government orginazations here) so that we can  marry a couple we have been teaching. they are the parents of andres, a kid we baptized like three weeks ago. the problem is that the dad is from nicaragua and his pasport is expired and he would have to go to mexico city to renew it. the good thing is that we are in mexico and we can get around things like that with enough connections in the registro civil haha. it looks like they will get married this week and then margarita, his wife, will get baptized on saturday. the bishop told us he doesn´t want us baptizing on sundays anymore cause it gets in the way of ward council haha. i was tempted to tell him that when they start having ward council more than once a month we´ll stop baptizing on sunday haha. but i held my tongue and accepted it haha. sometimes the members are frustrating because they don´t work much in the obra misional but they are really good to give us food so it´s hard to complain. we keep working alot with the converts but it is tough, sometimes they are just so lazy haha or don´t understand why it´s important to go to church. we have been knocking a lot of doors this week because the members don´t have any more referencias to give us. i have to think of some new ways to ask for references. you guys have any ideas??

tomorrow we are going to veracurz for the monthly zone lideres conference. i always enjoy it. it could be one of my last because i have a feeling that i am not going to be zone leader much longer, maybe one transfer more and then they will lower me down to trainer to finish the mish. it´s ok. i am ready for a change. 

sorry i didn´t take any pictures this week. sometimes i forget haha. well thanks for everything guys, i love you all and think and pray for you often.

love elder broadhead
