It's been a crazy few weeks as you can tell as I haven't had time to write a blog post. Last week was interviews and so we got to spend some time with President Jensen and his wife and get to know them a little better so that was great. We had transfers but both my companion and I stayed. The work here is creeping along and struggles as we don't have much for member missionary work. They are amazing at fellow shipping people as we bring them in but they refuse to help us find any new people to teach. There are a few people in the branch that do really well and are trying their hardest to help us so that is great. This zone is really picking up and the district leaders are really changing and striving to help in any way possible. Elder Firth, our district leader has changed SO much. It's been great to watch as he opens up and gets excited about the work and about helping the district. We have one family who has recently started coming back to church and is SO awesome! They are working with their neighbors across the street and invited us and them to the circus as a fun activity to break the ice so that should be fun. Their neighbors are a really nice family and would fit right in the branch. We have been looking for opportunities to serve them and help in any way they need so we mowed their lawn and gave them our number for anything else they need. Things are going here just wish it was a little faster! =)
As we strive for excellence the battle is hard but once we are there and look back we can live with no regrets and full of gratitude for what that journey taught us!
Love Elder Jach-Goates
