So first off happy anniversary Tiff and Jason. 3 years down and an eternity to go.
This week has been kind of crazy. So last Monday in the morning a guy who was running for governor of Tamaulipas México was killed. He was the one who was most likely going to win out of everyone else. He was traveling on the high way from victory city to Tampico when they were cut off by some people and then stopped and shot at by a gang. People have been really scared because of that and think that nothing is safe anymore. Yesterday was voting for all that and in place of the guy who was shot is his brother now. I believe that today will be announced who is the winner but it’s been nuts. Apparently yesterday was supposed to be really bad cause of voting but we didn’t see anything going on.
The 4th of July was super boring. My bishop was the only one to tell me happy 4th of July but it was good I'm super stocked for the independence day of México in September cause that will be huge!!!!
Hurricane Alex passed by this passed week as well. It rained quite a bit on Wednesday. It rained all day and didn’t stop for anything. In the northern part of the state I guess there was a lot more rain and it was a lot uglier up there but everything is good here.
We had interviews this week with pres and they went well. We tried to put a baptism date with 2 investigators this past week and they said they wanted to talk to each other about it and would have an answer for us this week. Well when we told pres that he told us to go strait to their house and invite them to be baptized the fallowing day. We went and did it but they still wanted to wait and think about when they could within themselves and get back to us. I’m really excited for them and I’m pretty sure we will put the dates tomorrow.
So 25 days and my comp will be in his house he is pretty happy to be going home and to tell the truth me too. He is a great guy and a good friend of mine but I just want someone who wants to be here and wants to works so I hope that what I get this next change.
There is a guy who served in the Las Vegas mission named Christopher Calabria, I thought if anyone knows who he is it would be Steven but this guy served in the mesquite stake for a bit too but he can’t remember what wards.
I wrestled a guy who is my ward mission leader who is a big dude like 280 lbs at least and like 6 foot 3 I would say. He has studied martial arts for like 7 years he said, like karate, tea Kwan doe, gugitsu and all kinds of stuff that I can’t spell. We had a meeting with him and after he wanted to see what I could do so we went out on the concrete and wrestled. He was surprised that I beat him with all the things that he knows but it was fun. I have a video but it is too big to send threw this but you guys will see it someday.
Well that’s about it for the Goff and Alderete chronicles this week. I love you all and thanks for everything.
lotta love GOFF
