CABO FRIO- Let's Build a Stake Here!

July 21, 2014

Dear Family and Friends,

I feel lately like this is a pivotal transfer of my mission. I've got more responsabilities and I've got a bigger work to complete. Our goal here is to turn this ward into a stake. I'm excited to work even harder here to make that happen. I don't have much time today to write anything big, so it'll be a short update this week.

My new companion, my second son is Elder de Medeiros he is awesome! He's a Brasilian and he is from Rio Grande do Norte. He is a great guy and ready to work hard with me here in Cabo Frio. Cabo Frio is a beautiful city! It's so nice and it's not so hot here like it was in Belford Roxo. The ward is super excited to have all of us here. My district is 4 areas, and all 8 Elders work in the same ward. Whoa. Watch out here comes the Power of the Priesthood.

This week we just did our best to get to know our part of the city, and the members here. We have nobody to teach. We are literally starting from the ground up. But that's exciting for us. We have to do all of the work with the members. There's no other way to do missionary work.

That's all I got this week. I'll have more time and news next week!

Love all of you!
Elder Evans
Here is C at her Baptism last week!

  1. What a wonderful event for C and for the special messengers of Jesus Christ to have guided and loved her to obtaining her own witness of the Truth you taught her. We are now sharing a message a month that you post within the YM Priesthood meetings. All three quorums are now meeting together due to the very small Deacons and Teachers numbers. It is so great to let them in to your missionary life to let them see and hear your thrills and challenges. There will be two more young men from our ward in the field - Julian Nieves-Cole had entered the MTC this week for the Reno Nevada Mission and Andre Fuller is headed to Tahiti in September. We pray for and think of you often. May you receive the inspiration to manage your new responsibilities and see the miracles your district will begin to experience due to your hard work and the Lord's spirit touching the members and those just waiting for the chance to hear your testimonies.
