November 4th-11th, 2013

Hey guys,

Well first off, happy birthday on the fifteenth mom!! i hope you have a great birthday and i will be thinking about and praying for you a lot. thanks so much for being the best mom an elder could ask for, i am very proud to be your son. happy birthday!! 

We had a good experience this week because we started working the the inactive husband of one of the sisters in the ward. we had two lessons with him this week that we tried hard to listen to him and try and help him come back to the gospel. the great surprise was that he went to church on sunday! the best part was the smile on his wifes face. she was so happy to be there in the church with him. we have had really good success working with the inactives. in ward council after the services the bishop with tears in his eyes, thanked us for the work we have done up until now. he then asked us to explain to the council how we had done it. we just said, "with love". for the work we have done with the inactives we definitly have the confidence of the bishop and members. we are also working with the brother of one of the sisters of the ward that is really liking what we teach him. he accepted to get baptized on the first of decembre. we are also working with vicente still. he didn`t go to church cause his grandma got sick so we are going to have to push his date back to the eighth. 

my companion is teaching me a lot about patience and how to be patient. he is not progressing as fast as i would like but the good part is that he is talking more in the lessons and not as homesick. he really likes basevall and is also a red soxs fan and was happy when i told him that they had won the world series haha. today we went to mcdonalds haha it was way cool the macdonalds here are like upper class restaurants and only the rich people go haha so we felt out of place but it was fun. 

elder benjamin de hoyos is coming to a stake conference that we are going to have here. and i am really excited. he is in the area presidencia. also one of the american missionaries from the temple invited us to an american thanksgiving on the twenty eighth cause it doesn`t get celebrated here. it should be fun.

thanks for everything guys i love you a lot. 

the pictures are of my chapel and me in one of the rich houses that we have in our ward. 

love elder broadhead
