Oct 28 2013

How it all going? Im glad to hear you recieved my package. And yes i have been getting your letters. So guess what our house flooded sunday morning. Pipe broke underneath the toilet and well we were able to stop it but it took a little time, besides i also spent time to save all of our stuff that was on the floor and then talk a little video.
So my next transfer will be in 2 weeks.
Well i need to fill out a form to send to the offices so they can schedule my plane ride home.
I will be writing more later.
Love you Bye

Oct 21 2013

Hey everyboday!

Well this week has been pretty busy. Mostly for all the meetings that we have been having, and then the baptism that we had this thursday.
Lunes - PDay
Martes - District meeting in the morning
MiƩrcoles - Baptismal interview for Y____
Jueves - Zone conference then Baptism
Viernes - Interviews with the Pres. 
Sabado - normal day

So it was kind of an uneventful week other then the baptism. I would send pics but im pretty sure the computer that i am using has a virus and i dont want to risk damaging my memory. Anyways, the day of the baptism me and my companion were hardly even in our sector. We had to leave really early to go to the zone conference which was about an hr away in bus and started at 9am and lasted until 2:30. The conference was all about missionary safety. It was pretty interesting, the first time we have really taken so much time to talk about safety. Then after then conference we returned to our sector, eat lunch, and went to the church (which is outside of our sector) to start filling the baptismal font and make preparations. The ward planned the baptism to start at like 730 but i know it was going to end up starting a bit later then that because the dad works late some of the daughters in the family of the girl who was going to get baptised get out of school at 750pm and they dont have a car to get the to church and have to take a bus which takes a little while. Well a fin de cuenta, we went with a member to pick them up at 8. At the church the dad and the daughter got changed and really for the baptism, then we took fotos, and by the time we actually start the service it was 900pm. We got permision to stay out late from the assistents to the pres. It was a great service and a big day for the girl and her dad.
We found this family about a month and a half ago, they had reciently moved from Sanora and didnt know where the church was and little by little returned to church. Its a family is passing through a lot of difficulties but they are keeping at it.

Well i love you all, 
Elder Evans

Hey Everyone,

This week was pertty great. I really enjoyed General Conference! Saturday and sunday us missionaries basically spent the whole day in the stake center watching all the conference sessiones. The rest of the week was pretty normal. My new companion Elder Haro and i are getting allong really well. We had actually meet eachother a little while back. 
This week we got to meet a few new people to teach. One of which was a referal for one of the members in the ward. His name is Jaziel, and he seemed really interested in what we shared with him. He has accepted to read the Book of Mormon and pray about it. He also accepted to get baptized if he feels that what we are teaching is true. He didnt go the church or see any of the conference sessiones and i dont know why because we havent been able to get a hold of him. We will keep trying thougth because he really seemed interested.
We also met a friend of a lady that we are teaching. His name is Nahum. He is passing through a lot of hardships in his life right now. Hes a really great guy and has two kids but after lossing his job his wife has kind of left them. She comes to visit every once and a while and apperently is very bi-polar, happy one day and super mad the next. I really dont know the whole situation between them but we started to teach him and he is very accepting to what we have taugh. We are basically trying to help him find comfort and streingth in the gospel. He was able to come with us to the first session of saterday conference. He said he enjoyed it and is interested in going to church the next week too.
I really enjoyed the conferences but i think i would have enjoyed them more in english haha. I think one of my favorite talkes was from Edward Dube, about how we cant look back yet because there is more work to do ahead of us.
I definitley have to rewatch the talks.

Well i really dont have too much to write about this week.
hope you all enjoyed conference
love elder Evans

ps in the pic, matt and hayley are the ones who seemed to have changed the most sense i have left.
and i have recieved a package and a letter. i hope by the end of the week i will be able to send a package home.

Sept 30 2013

hey Everyone!
First off! Thanks for the package! i got it thursday! The bishop told me that he called you mom, and he passed the hug you sent for me haha.
So as you may or may not know, today was transfer day and well i am still in the same spot (buenas aires norte) and i got a new companion today. His name is Elder Haro, and hes from el D.F., Mexico. Hes a cool guy, very quiet though. I actually met him before. Well today coming home from transfers, something happened that really made us laugh. A sister from one of my past wards gave us a ride and just so happen she had a short in the horn, and we were in some pretty bad traffic. It made me think of the Byran Regan joke. The horn keeped honking for long periods of time and all of us in the car, except the sister driving, just died laughing all the way home. 
So these last 5 weeks have finally paid off! Alberto y Maria finally got baptised! It was a very relaxing day that day, we practically did nothing because we were stuck in the church the whole day. We got their at 3pm to clean and started filling the baptismal font. At 530 Maria y Alberto got to the church because we were going to start at 600 but at 535 the ward mision leader called us saying that no one was going to be able to get there in time and so he moved it back until 730. So basically we just hung out in the church for 2 hrs talking and watching church movies. There was really no point in returning to the sector because Alberto and Maria were already there and the church is a little ways away from our area. It was a great relaxing day. The actually baptismal service, once it start, went just great. Elder Cruz and I were able the baptize. I baptized Maria and ECruz baptized Alberto.
This week we will be working with a member that has a few people he wants us to meet. Some people apparently really interested in listening. So pray for us that we will be able to start teaching these people and they will accept the gospel in their lives. We have a few people we are teaching, but we do need more.
