From Elder S. Goff - "Zone of the Change!!!!"

  What a week!! Things have been going great here in mante with my new comp with the amazingly hot weather and just being a missionary. This week all the zone leaders of the mission went to Tampico for a meeting with president call and his assistants. It was great in the meeting we talked about things going on this change and everything and things that happened last change as well. Here in mante we were named the zone of the change for the work we were able to get done. I was super excited and well we have planned to get named the zone of this change as well. We have started off really great. We had the most baptisms in week one and we are planning on keeping that going. I'm really excited. A lot of people in the mish have been scared to come to this zone because before no one had baptisms here but now we have turned that around and things are going great. The stake and wards are growing.
  When we went to the meeting in Tampico we went down there on Thursday night and the meeting was on Friday. We stayed the night at the office elder’s house and in the house they have a washer and a dryer so me and my comp took all our dirty clothes all the way to Tampico to wash them. It turned out great though. Clothes are so much softer when they come out of the dryer. It had been along time since I used one of those so it was cool.
  Yesterday in church things didn’t turn out to well. we were gone to Tampico for about 2 days so we didn’t get to much done here and well we only had 2 people in church this week when the past week we had 8. Well all the members figured that me and elder Dominguez don’t know what we are doing or something. All the members were giving us counsel of what we need to do. Scriptures that we should share with people and how to go about doing the work it kind of bothered me but oh well. We are working super hard though we found 9 new investigators this past week taught a bunch of lessons and well Sunday just didn’t turn out that great. We are working super hard and things are going well but we still need to improve. Me and my comp work a lot the same. Super hard but we have fun doing it so I feel like we will be able to do a lot.
  My comp is a convert of 5 years the only member in his family. His family didn’t and doesn’t want him to be here on the mish but he is here. He is from Sonora auga prieta just below Arizona. Like 3 hour away from glen so I think ill be visiting him someday. He has 15 months in the mish and is in his prime. I love the kid he is super good at playing the guitar and singing that’s what he did to get money to come on the mish he played in bars at night and made pretty good money doing it.
  well our week was really good but this one should be even better we have zone conference and well we are going to get these elders even more excited to get stuff done.
I love you all and hope things are going well. oh and I got my first letter of death this week which asked where I’m flying to and ill be getting home the 15th of September.

Love Elder Sawyer Garrett Goff

We found a drunk guy this week out riding his mo ped and we asked if we could use it and he lent it to us for a little bit. haha:)
