So this week was as normal as any onther on my mission. I hope you are all taking the time to read my blogs. I feel like when I come to e-mail that I'm all typed out, but I better e-mail or I might get in trouble. :)
We had a conference call this week. Well I guess 3 of them. One with the New Trainers, one with the new District Leaders and One with all of the Zone Leaders. It was interesting. President Gardner started out by asking Elder House and I to talk about the incredible week we had when we taught 38 lessons and set 5 baptismal dates. So we just talked about the meeting with Elder Packer. How we wrote down as a companionship things we could work on. We didn't only write them down, but we truely tried to do better in about 8 things. We had quite the list. So that entire week we tried to fix those "little things" and as we did it made the biggest difference. We listened to the spirit and did what it told us to do. It was an incredible week. I just thought it was funny President put us on the spot. Hopefully it will help some others to change the "little things" as well.
It finally snowed!!! about a forth of an inch last night. haha Apparently Worland doesn't get a lot of snow. Which is a bummer. I think that if it's going to be cold it may as well snow and cover up all of the BROWN!! So it hasn't snowed pretty much as all in the valley. There is snow on the mountains all around, but that's about it.
Elder House and I and the 2 district leaders in our zone are going to Billings Tomorrow night for a meeting on Wednesday. It should be good. I'm excited. Elder Child is a Zone leader too, so I'll finally get to see him again. I haven't seen him in over a year. I haven't seen him since he left Helena. He seems to be doing really well from what everyone has told me. I like these meetings, not only are they helpful for us and our Zone, but they are also really neat because we get to see everyone. Well I guess we will only see half of the mission's Leadership.
I'm sending Joli a package today. I don't know if it will get there by Wednesday, but I'm going to try to get it there by then. I think she will like what I got her. If she doesn't she can send it back and I'll use it. ;) I might look kind of funny though. :D
So today Elder House and I are going to go talk to Chuck Russell, and find out more about this firefighting gig. I think it will be a good thing. He hires 52 seasonal workers. So it would only be for the summer. We would go wherever the fires are, Alaska, Cali, Nevada, Arizona, Washington, Oregon, pretty much anywhere. We'll see what happens. I'm more than likely going to apply and give it a try. I want to try something new. Something that will keep me busy. Something that will work my bottom off. I think this might be just the job. Tiff is going to help me apply to; Dixie, BYUI and Snow. Those are the only 3 I really feel good about. Then I'll decide from there. :) I love you all and hope all is well, Thanks for your prayers and love.
Love, Elder Austin Gene Goff
