Dear Family,

Hey!!! Well that was a wonderful opportunity to be able to talk with all of you. I really enjoyed that. It's a lot easier to explain how things are over the phone than it is by email. I hope that all of you had a wonderful Christmas, and had a fun time remembering what the real reasons are why we celebrate. I know that as a missionary Christmas just opened the hearts of the people. It's a great time to try and share the gospel with someone who doesn't know Christ. Yesterday me and Elder Reeves had a miracle happen when we on the street talking to people. There was a man who was in his young 30's who has had some hard times in his life and a whole lot of unanswered questions. But we were able to sit him down in our teaching center and answer his questions. It was amazing to watch him go from apprehensive and doubting to asking us questions and listening very intently. Missionary work is such a blessing, and I don't only mean for the people we find but for us as missionaries. Me and Elder Reeves are having a lot of fun reflecting on the past couple of transfers and seeing how we've grown. Transfers are coming up soon and it's going to be really weird being with someone besides Elder Reeves because I've been with him so long. That makes me really sad about that family. I do know Ashlyn and I do know the dad also because he drove my group at the first Ragnar relay I did. We really are so lucky to have the knowledge that we have, because we know that everything will be ok. It's been really eye opening over here because the people do not know what we know and a lot of them have had a loss. I know that this gospel can bless so many people's life.
So I just want to say thank you again for the gift that you gave me, I'm really diggen the adventure time t-shirt. I've been wearing it around for the couple nights, and I can just tell that Elder Reeves is jealous. I'm sorry I don't really have a ton to say because I barely just talked to you and not a lot of things have happened the last couple days. I hope that you all have a great week and a happy New Years, thank you for all the support. It really helps me appreciate the decision I made to come out here on a mission. I'm having the time of my life, and I hope that you have a great week.

P.S. I need Grandma and Grandpa's address so I can get writing them a letter ha-ha (both Pack and Robinson)
