President Augustin got released as the Lubbock, Texas mission president. They had their last Zone Conference with him, and saw him for the last time. Sawyer said it was pretty sad.

Elder Walker and Elder Velasco were Sawyer's companions while he was in Muleshoe. That's the area he lost all his pictures from. I was so glad that he saw both of them at Zone Conference and got pictures with them!
Here's part of an e-mail I got from Sawyer:
I officially had one of the most emotional realizations on my mission so far. I have gone through problems about me not seeing any success on my mission and such, but then something happened this week that was very powerful. Elder Walker went to another area after Muleshoe and had really great success. He was telling me about it at Zone Conference. He put his arm around me and said, "Varvy, thank you for changing my mission. I wouldn't have been able to do the things I did without your help and influence." I almost started crying in the middle of Zone Conference! It was then that I realized that I am making a difference while I'm out here. It was one of the best things that has happened to me on my mission!
