A behind-the-scenes look at Evan's two-year mission in Madagascar for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints

Wednesday, October 22, 2014


       Well, not much happened this week. We had interviews with President Adams. And we also attended this meeting with Jacques A. Van Reenen, an area seventy in the Africa Southeast Area. He was pretty cool. I got some letters from September, finally. Some from Auntie Bessie, one from Nic, and another from Brother and Sister Heilman. 
       Anyway, we are watching conference on Saturday and Sunday. That will be nice to finally listen to the talks that everyone is talking about. I wish I had more to say, but nothing has really happened here this week. We had more power outages this week...that is starting to get old, to say the least. We had a little rain, but not enough to stop the sand from piling up to the point where you can't even move. 
      We had lunch today as a zone, and then were planning on playing two-hand touch rugby at the beach, but that fell through, as usual. Transfer rumors are getting fired up. I could actually get moved to another area now (or Ratsimbarison), but we will see. All the elders will find out on November 9th. The weeks go by fast, but the days go by slow. 
       I am looking forward to Christmas. Not Thanksgiving or Halloween, because they don't really celebrate those days here. But I am looking forward to being able to Skype and talk to everyone. Anyway, this email will be kind of short because I lost contact with most of you today. Don't know if there was an internet problem or what in SC. But, I'll talk to everyone again next week (7 extensive days). Have a great week and stay safe, everyone. 

Love y'all.
