October 21st-28th, 2013

Hey guys,

sounds like everything is good back home. i hope you have a happy halloween! thanks so much for the package!! loved it. wow how i missed candy corn haha. thanks alot. 

we had an activity that we did this week that turned out not too bad but not too good. it was a rally with lots of little games but it was poorly organized by the district. oh well they tried hard. lots of people didn`t come through for them and al final the missionaries had to do almost everything. it was a good learning oportunity.

well i`m getting transfered to ciudad aleman of the zone tuxtepec. and i`ll be training!!! president told me that before he read my request to train he had already done the transfers so i know it is the will of the lord. last night they told me that i was going to open an area in veracruz because an area that already has missionaries was gonna divide in half. the other missionaries that are already there are sisters, so i wasn`t to happy about it, but then they called this morning and told me that there had been some minor changes and that i would now be going to ciudad aleman. me and my hijo will be getting there in whitewash. i`m excited because i used to do divisiones there when i was in tres valles. because it used to be part of the same district. so i know a few of the members. it`s a branch. they don`t have a chapel so they meet in a prayer house, i think its called. casa de oracion. i`m really excited for the change. i was tired of being zone leader. 

the members have been really nice here giving me gifts and inviting us to eat today cause yesterday i talked in church and announced that i was going to leave. a little later we are going to eat with preisdent masa (branch president) and then in the night we are going to eat with presidente vasquez (district presidency) 

filiberto, the investigator we were going to baptize yesterday didn`t get baptized because we didn`t think he is ready. he had started telling us that people had been coming to him in visions and attacking him and things like that so we were like, well we are going to wait a few weeks for your baptism. he still went to church though. he`s a good guy and understands everything, he just might not be allright in the head.

well thanks for everything guys, i love you all. i`m trying really hard to have the spirit with me to have great lessons.

love elder broadhead
