35 Days and Counting!!

Dear Family,
So this week ended fantastic. I got my travel plans and I can not believe how fast 2 years has gone. :) I love you all so much.
Nicolas no matter the score of the ACT at least you took it. Good for you brah!!! Meaghen, Congrats on your advancement in gymnastics:) I hope you are just as good in golf so we can have a friendly competition between you, me, Nicolas and dad. :)
So Nicolas I heard from a close source of mine.. you are in my room. I hate to break it to ya but if the rumor is true... You won't be there in 35 days. :) hahaha  Yes ladies and gentlemen... THAT IS THE COUNT.  Just 35 DAYS left of my 2 year journey here in the Philippines. :)  I am happy to be coming home soon,  but at the same time I wish I could stay.  To everyone who has supported me and helped me on this journey I thank you from the bottom of my heart. :) 
The middle of the week was not good because I was sick from Thursday to Saturday.  To make things worse our sister that was baptized was not confirmed because she didn't come to church. :(  That's the worst feeling in the world.  She was ok with the baptism but being confirmed scares her. JAJAJA

Not much else happened.  If I didn't mention last week I had the pleasure and opportunity to meet Bishop Waddell and Elder Robins of the Presidency of the 70. :) I have been so blessed over my life to meet apostles either here on the mission, at Dodger games, or in random places in Utah. I have been so blessed and no words can explain how I feel when I talk to them. :)

This mission has taught me so much.  I can see so many changes in my life from what I was 2 years ago,  spiritually and mentally. :)  I am so glad I decided to serve. :)  The Philippines is amazing and I hope to  have the chance to return someday!!!  :)

Hello Family,

Had a great week and everything is great..... (especially because the Lakers won...hahaha).  We had a baptism of Sister Gemma Rose Montebon on Saturday.  She was a referal from one of our memebers and we have been working with her for 4 weeks.

Today we pretty much just have :)  We do have baptisms that are scheduled for the next Saturdays!!!!  I love this area so much. :)  I don't know if I ever told you my companion's name since the last transfer.  His name is Elder Bagion and he is from Zambales, which is in the Philippines.  He has been in the field for 7 months and we get along great.  I can't believe I used to be that new.  Time flies when you're having fun.

Sorry this is short but nothing much new here.

Love you all,
Elder Evans
