Hello Everyone

Wow, it's pretty cool that Pres. Eyring knows who I am!

It's not everyday that a General Authority says your name at a Temple Dedication! :D [note-Pres. Eyring doesn't really know Elder Evans. I had just written and told him that at the 12:00 pm session of the Gila Valley Temple Dedication on Sunday that Pres. Eyring had accidentally announced that the choir would sing a hymn written by 'Stephen Evans', instead of 'Evan Stephens'.]

So this week has been a good one. Bob was baptized and confirmed. We also picked up a new investigator named Michelle. She’s a high school kid and her friend invited her to learn about the Church. We committed her to be baptized on the 12th of June.

We’re also teaching an 8 year-old who turns 9 on June 9th. So that's when he'll be getting baptized…talk about your “Golden Birthday”. :D [note-a "golden birthday" is when your birthdate and the age you will be turning are the same number.]

I wish I had more to say, but I don't. Oh, yeah I do...Okay, so it rained for like 3 days straight, then it SNOWED for 2 days straight!! It's freakin’ MAY!! I hate SNOW!! But today is a nice sunny day so it's all good. :D

Elder Weiland is going to try to get the president to let me stay one more transfer up here with him. Pres. Olson wants to make him a District Leader, and Elder Weiland says he needs my creative mind to make the District Meetings more fun. :D So whatever, I don't mind.

So, to answer your questions…

*What was the hardest thing you had to do this week? Probably get out of bed, when it was 5 degrees outside.

*Out of all those you have helped bring into the Church, who’s life do you think has changed the most? Why? Lenny. He was the most hard-hearted person ever. He literally went through HELL and back to be where he is today.

*What is your favorite town to work in in Star Valley? Why? Afton, cause that's where all the work is.

*Describe a normal day as a missionary. Get up, shower, eat, pray, study, study, pray, leave home, work, lunch, work, dinner, work, home, plan, shower, pray, bed. :D Yep, that's the life of an Elder.

Anyways, that's all I got for now. :D Take care.

Elder Evans
