Aug 26 2013

Buenas Tardes a todos,

So my first week here in this area has been pretty good. Its weird being back in TJ but thats all right. My ear infection has gone down a lot and i feel a lot better. Me and my companion are getting along really well, hes from Puerto Escondido, Oaxaca. Maybe Riley knows him haha. 

Its been a pretty great week. We have meet a lot of new people to teach. We are still working really hard to get referals, and we have recieved a few, but the majority of the people that we are teaching are people that we meet outside and start talking to them. We actaully had a couple come talk to use and tell us they want to listen to what we teach because the want to change their ways. Its kind of a sad situation becuase we first meet them, the day before they had been assulted and were beat up pretty badly. Its a couple both around the age of 25 and they have a little daughter that spends most of the time with the grandma because their living conditions arnt that great. The boyfriend (because theyre not yet married, but have been together for 6yrs) has a problem with drinking and becuase of some minor things he did under the influence of the alcohol he just about ruined his relationship and trust with his girlfriends side of the family. They both really want to change. We share with them how they can be forgiven and how they can change because of the atonement of Christ. They really felt the spirit and are really working hard on changing. They have put the goal of being baptised Sept 26, that means inbetween now and then they have to stop drinking and get married and the new rule here in mexico is that they all investigadores have to go to church 5 times before getting baptized. I really hope everything works out for this 26th. 

More news, we just had stake conference and i got to see and whole bunch of the people from Industrial ward and they all recongnized me. It was great being able to see them again.
Well i really dont have much to write but i will send pics of where i live the next week. What i am sending now is just a few from Ensenada.
Love you all
Elder Evans
