Hello from....Aspen?

Howdy family. This has been another sick week for me. I have no idea what I have, but I'm sick.

My head hurts, my body is aching, my throat is really sore, and I have no voice, it's gone! I can get a few words in.....then nothing. It stinks.

This week has been a crazy one, we helped the ZL's blitz their area in Preston, and I saw tons of things from "Napoleon Dynamite". But Star Valley is even cooler! Why? Because this is where they filmed the "Aspen" scenes for “Dumb and Dumber”! When it shows them drive into town for the first time, that's Afton, and the house where Mary is staying at in “Aspen”, is in Alpine. Sweet, ey?

Well, the Mexican family dropped us. They just wanted to learn about God, they didn't want to be part of the Church. We picked up an investigator named Sandy and we may be having a baptism on May 1st for Teri. Mike, the 9 yr old, is doing good, and Josie, the lady with all the animals, is doing good, too. And that's it for now. :D

Anyways, I love you guys,

Vote for Pedro

So this week has been a good one, and a bad one. I was really, really sick a few days ago, throwing up and all that stuff…not fun. And we did a lot of traveling from Soda Springs, to Mount P., back to Soda, then back to Star Valley....ahhh, crazy!

We did pick up a new investigator, her name is Teri. She is 19 and married, and is going to be baptized on the 1st of May. So that'll be nifty!

The weather has been nice, very nice, actually. Unfortunately, we didn't get to help brand any cows as we ended up helping the Zone Leaders teach Seminary, instead.

So, guess where else we got to go… we were in Preston, Idaho, home of Napoleon Dynamite!!!

Sweet!!! I saw all the “highlights” like Pedro's house, the school, all that fun stuff. :D

Anyways, I need to get goin’ and get my hair cut.

Well, on Sunday we baptized Greg (by the way he is doing good) [note-sadly, Greg’s wife was killed in a car accident a couple of weeks ago], and next week he will get the Holy Ghost. Greg is doing awesome.

Last night Elder Weiland and I had an interesting discussion with a lady, it was awesome! She was talking about the whole gay thing, and how “that's how God made them”. So I asked, "Carol, would God make a murderer?” - No, she said. “Would God create a robber?” -No. “Then why would God make someone who was created after his own image gay?” She stopped and thought about it. Then I pulled out the Bible, and busted out Leviticus 20:13 and she was like, “No, that's not right.” Then I said, “Carol, you just said the Bible was the Word of God”, and so on. So anyway, she is going to be coming to church on Sunday with her husband (he reminds me so, so, so much of Danny Partington)!

Anyways, that's all I’ve got to report right now. Oh, on Friday we will be branding a cow or two...

...It'll be sweet. :D

I thought it was Spring!

Hello Family. Yes, I got your package, thank you. The GPS works so well! Star Valley is so huge compared to B-town.

I'm doing good up here although I'm really sick and tired of snow! I am so tired of seeing WHITE! I want to see GREEN! :D . It snowed last night. 4.5 inches....and it’s stinkin’ APRIL!! And it's been dang COLD, too!

Other than that, things are going good. Being with Elder Weiland again is great, I am really enjoying it.

We picked up a family of four on Sunday. They are a Mexican family and they speak dang good English, I'm really surprised. They all have good hearts, too. The dad, Hector, just wants his kids to be more focused of Jesus, and the Mom wants them to be just like us.

I need you guys to do me a huge favor. I need the address for the missionaries in Sierra Vista. I have a few member invites for them. Just remember MI's (member invites) are so much better then knocking doors. You know you guys should invite the neighbors into your home for a meal, then a lesson with the Elders. It wouldn't hurt. But don't be sneaky about it! Be specific, direct, and clear.

Love you,
Elder Evans
