September 30th-October 7th, 2013

hey fam,

good to hear from you all. first off, mom no they haven`t told me about any release date and i`m not asking. second off i really haven`t heard anything about the world series. it`s pure soccer here. dad, i hope it goes well at work with your back this week and i hope you can get some relief. where did you take that beehive down from?

This week was pretty cool because of the general conference. wow i absolutely love the general conferences. i love the spirit that can be felt. i remember on saturday morning by the time i got to the church for the conference i was a little mad and frustrated because we had passed by for some investigadores but they couldn`t go, but i remember that when i got there and started listening to the choir it was just an awesome feeling of peace and the spirit that came over me. i don`t know how anyone can watch the general conference and not feel the spirit. there were soo many messages that were shared that seemed to be just for me or the mission or my investigatores. i got to watch almost all of it in english which was even better. every time i see the conference my testimony gets strengthened and i know that the church is true and i know that those men are inspired by god. they can do what they do so well because they have learned after a lifetime of experience, how to recognize and listen to the influence of the spirt, act according to the prompting, and recognize the tender mercies in their life that come from it. i have already analized my notes and set some goals to improve. i hope you guys can do the same. 

after the conference we baptized jesus. it was a great baptismal service and the young mens president, lehi, baptized him. he`s a good kid. it`s gonna be hard for him cause he is the only member in his immediate family and he`s young. but i have the feeling that he is going to stay strong. this week we will be working hard to find new people to teach. that is the key in this new programs of five times in the church. we have to find at least 2 new people cada dia.

our other investigator that has a fecha is filiberto. he went to the conference and loved it. he has a few problems with the word of wisdom but he is on track to get baptized the 27th. he`s a really humble guy, in the heart and in the world. he is really poor but accepts everything we teach him without questions.

the other picture is of us at a restaurant we went to eat one day because the hermana couldn`t give us food. it was a lot of chicken and after my comp felt really sick with gas cause he ate too much and it was hillarios cause he accidently let some slip in the lessons haha.  

i love you guys a lot and am proud to be part of your family. i am trying hard to be more like christ everyday and develop christ like attributes. i know god lives and loves us and i know the scriptures are true. my prayers will be with you this week as always. thanks for everything, peace out.

love elder broadhead
