December 9th-16th, 2013

hey guys,
well first things first. i`m thinking it would be best for me to do the skype on christmas eve in the afternoon. like at three thirty or something like that but if you guys cant i can do it on the 25th or the 26th as well. let me know exactly what day and time you want to do it in your next e mail so i can make the arrangements here. 

something funny happened this week because american girl missionaries are starting to get here and one of them is in my district and when i met her she was like way surprised and said, your elder broadhead?? i was like, yeah, why? she said that she was a follower of my blog and had read all my letters home haha. i`m not gonna lie i felt a little embarased cause i feel like she knows all my secrets haha. weird.

well the time keeps flying by and another week is down. this week we confirmed elva and kept teaching jorge. he is solid to get baptized this week. we are working hard to find new people. edit went to church with her family so that was awesome she should be baptized on the twenty ninth if everything goes well. the only problem is her work cause it is crazy in december so it is hard for her to go to church and for us to find time to teach her. yesterday we had an awesome training from pres treviƱo and one of the area seventy from here on the obra de salvacion. wow it was awesome. half of the mission was there and all of the ward council of every ward in half the mission. it was packed but amazing because i got to see all the ward leaders of my old areas and it brought tears to my eyes to be able to see and feel the love we have for each other and i recieved the confirmation that this was definitely the place for me to serve my mission, the lord doesn`t make mistakes. i could really see that i did make a diference in these peoples lives and it made me feel really good. i got to see arturo and cindy from tres valles and they said they are definitely going to get sealed before i leave, the delay has been because they are going to move to veracruz at the end of the month. but they are still going strong. i`m so happy to be a missionary. i love you guys a lot!! till next week!
love elder broadhead
