New Companion, Same Place!

FHE at Edgardo Lamis Sr. house
Dear Grizwalt Family,
HAHAHAH... I just really wanted to say that and i am dying in laughter..hahah.

So as you all  know by now... Elder Dio has transferred and my new companion is Elder Candilasa!!!! I know its a mouthful but I love him and I know that we will do very well together:)

This is Tito's daughter... HE is getting baptized on the 25th:)
She is so cute and adorable
As of today President has taken away Facebook but he said that it will be back in the near future:) It was crazy.... 70% of the whole Bacolod mission transferred and it was so funny that I got to see everyone from Provo today. :)  Sister Allegretti,Schultz,Lewis,and Marriott were all there and so was Elder Benedict. :) Me and Elder Benedict were the only ones that didn't transfer... the 4 sisters did..HAHAH. It was great to see them and to hear about their successes thus far.

I cant believe next week I will only have 1 year left:) Elder Candilasa just hit his year mark last week and he goes home December 5, 2106. :)

Its weird to not have Elder Dio by my side because I have been with him for 4 months but I cant wait to get started with Elder Candilasa!!!

Elder Wade also transferred and I got to meet up with him as well... He is now the new Supply elder so maybe if you send packages... they will arrive to me faster..HAHAHA LOL...:)

The Panes Family...smile emoticon MY favorite family here in Tuyom:)
So again I will not be on Facebook for a short time but I will be back on when president gives us the OK!!!

I love you all and hope everything is going great:)
Love Always,
Elder Evans

*** Mom Post ***
I would like to apologize for not having Spencer's blog updated for the last three weeks.  I can give the excuses as to why, but you probably don't really care, and I really don't want to tell you!  Just kidding! :)  The truth is, Spencer hasn't really shared much of his "exceptional efforts" because he says he doesn't really do anything "interesting".  Well to him it might not be interesting because he is more comfortable now in his "foreign" surroundings.  But to his family here at home, EVERYTHING he does is interesting and fun.

He simply just wants to know how everything is here in California and only shares a brief comment here and there about his service.  He did say last week, however, that his best Christmas gift is having two baptisms on Christmas day.  He is really looking forward to that.

So with that, I will post the pictures that he sent us and pass along his Christmas wishes:
"I hope everyone has a very Merry Christmas and remember the reason we have this great holiday is because of our Lord and Savior and his sacrifice for us.  I love and miss you all!"
