Sept 16 2013

Dear Family and Friends
This week went well and fast, although the language is still a bit frustrating but I think it´s slowly getting better. Good job Matt in marching band, I still remember marching band like it was yesterday, and it was two years ago, that´s crazy. I´ll for sure look up DC 76. This week one chapter that really helped me was Ephesians 3. I don´t have zone conference till october 23 so hopefully the pictures will be here on Friday when we have interviews with President Rowley. 
I had a few strange/cool experiences this week. One was that it took me three weeks in the field to get sick. I was throwing up most of the day on Wednesdsay so I was in bed all day and that´s it. On thursday I returned to work but had reallly bad stomach and chest pain, and one investigator is some sort of shaman or something. He did some strange thing to help me with my sickness but it wasn´t as weird as most would think when they hear the word shaman. My companion Elder Roman just laughed the whole time. 
Also, we have been teaching a 14 year old boy named J_____, he said we walked by one day and felt something so he called us over from his house and taught him about the plan of salvation the first meeting. Oh and his Grandma is a member but no one else. Then we taught him a second time and he had a friend or two over so we taught all of them. Then our third time he had  more  friends over and we taught all of them the restoration and now we have three new investigators, J_____ and two of his friends are intrerested in hearing more. I´m really excited to see how this plays out!
Today my district went to the waterfalls nearby, we took a moto taxi for 1 minutes and then walked an hour and a half. Then the two other americans, one latino missionary, and I ran back in 20minutes while two other latinos just walked. It was really cool! I´m going to experiment with dropbox today to drop some pictures. 
Tomorrow I will be on splits in chulucanas with my district leader Elder Farnsworth from Georgia so I´m excited for that, it´s my first splits.
I had stake conference which was a broadcast, we listened to two people but the audio was bad so we couldn´t hear them, and then after we had Elder Bednar and Elder Scott speak. I couldn´t get much out of it though because it was all spanish ha.
That's what I have for this week, Love and miss you!!
Elder Evans, Paul
