Oct 7 2013

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
