October 28th-November 4th, 2013

Hey guys,

congrats mom that the red sox won!! glad your back is feeling a little better dad. Happy birthday ash!!! i hope you had a good celebration with the fam and i hope you have a good day on the seventh. i can`t believe you are going to be 19!! i hope you do something fun on your b day!! love you!!

well i am really happy here in revolucion 2. my hijo is called Elder Rojas he is from obregon sonora. in the north. he is a little rough around the edges but all around a good guy because he is sincere. he is struggling to leave his family behind and learn how to teach the gospel but all the new guys have to go through that. we have been going around this first week getting to know the members and have found some good investigatores. we share the ward with two sister misionaries. sister de orbe and sister jaquez. the obispo is really good cause he is really focused on the missionary work and a really organized guy. i like him a lot and can tell that we are going to have exito in this area because of him. i have learned that a good bishop is one of the keys to success. one of the parts of our area is the nicest part of the mission. like big houses, nice cars and stuff like that. president treviƱo lives in our ward but doens`t attend it because he didn`t like the young womens program for his daughter so they go to a different ward. the best part was that the first week we brought 2 investigators to church and two inactive families. the best part was that one of the inactive sisters that we went to church got up and shared her testimonio in the sacrament meeting and thanked us and called us angels. those are the moments that motivate me to keep working. i am working really hard just like before and i can tell we are going to have a lot of sucess here. it`s a good ward. i`m happy to be training and teaching everything i know to elder rojas.

the pictures are of us at a dairy queen haha i am glad to be back in veracruz because there are a few american restaurants as well. we also went to wal mart today. wow it feels good to be in a walmart haha. 

love you guys, thanks for everything,

 love elder broadhead
