October 7th-14th, 2013
first off, thanks so much for the pictures, it was awesome, lets see if you can keeep em comin. it was great to see that i`m not the only incredibly red person on earth haha. love you guys. second off, i`m not sure what to say about the arthritis in your hips dad, it`s good that they found what could be the problem but bad that you have arthritis. when would the surgery be? i`ll have to ask my companion aragon (he`s a male nurse) a little bit more about arthritis.
thanks for sending the package, i`ll be on the look out for it. if you happen to send a nother package before i go home i would need some new garments tops and bottoms, like three, and a english - spanish visual dictionary by darling kindersley. i saw one of the missionaries that had it and it looks really helpful. its just like a dictionary with pictures of everything like food and body parts and sports and thinkgs like that.
that`s cool to hear about ryan short going on the mission. there is lots of missionaries these days. i was reading the liahona of october and it talks a lot about the work of salvation. i don`t know if you guys have read it yet but i hope so. it is awesome, i`ve learned a lot. i`ve been doing allright on my conference goals, i`m trying to talk with absolutely everyone i come in contact with like i did at the beginning of my mission and i`m memorizing the articles of faith and trying to not get mad at all costs.
this week we found a great family that looked like they were going to progress until saturday we went for the appt and the dad told us that we shouldn`t come back and that they were happy in the catholic church aaaahhhh heart breaker. this week on friday we will be having zone conferences and be looking for new people again.
i`m also a little confused on what happened with scott cause nana told me that they were moving to utah.
also i will have a ton of great farting stories to tell you guys when i get back haha.
well i`m happy to be part of the true church of god and am trying my best in every moment. i have learned that for me, the biggest battles in life will be mental. anything i put my mind to, i can easily do. sometimes its just that a lot of doubt and fear of failure and other things come into my ind that i have to fight out. like dad used to always say is true, it`s all in the head. god is a person with a body like us, his power comes from his mind. al que cree, todo es posible. thats the mission theme.
love elder broadhead
the pics are of a zone activity we did today. i really don`t like doing them, it`s a big hassle but it turned out fun.
