Merry Christmas!! (Dec 2)

Hello everyone!
I'm still doing good. Thank you all for your letters this week. Tyson That was the funnyest picture i think i have ever seen. You have been hangin up lights for way to long. :) My Thanksgiving was really good. I was able to eat with a part member family and share a good lesson on thanks and families with them. Its really humbling being away and seeing how much people will still do for you.
Then we went to the Oryangs and ate with them and saw another member after that. Its really different down here. They have Dressing which is just like stuffing except its not in crumbs. Its really good. They don't have any kind of fruit pie. Its either pumpkin or sweet potato pie. They are both really good. Sweet potato pie taste almost exactly like pumpkin but just a little different. Alot of people eat Chittlans instead of turkey which seems alittle well... alot weird to me but oh well. Then they have collard greens and cornbread and macaroni and you can't forget the potato salad (which i have grown accustomed to). We have been working with the Smith family and we should be teaching them at the church tonight and setting a baptismal date with them. Mrs Smith would be the perfect young womens leader here. She is really busy already though. I'm hoping that the gospel will help her handle all that she has going. She works 7 days a week 2 different jobs totall and has 3 kid ages 15, 12, and 9 that are all very active in school and sports. she is very very busy. They are doing great though.
Then Joseph Jones should be getting baptised this sunday! He is an 18 year old kid that is going to play football at Arkansas state. A division 1 school. He is way good at football. He is a great kid and has been tough to get a hold of but we finally did and he should be getting baptised sunday. We are way excited for him.
Big C is still coming along. He said he still didn't know if the Book of Mormon was true but he was still praying. So we taught him how God was going to answer his prayer. How the Holy Ghost is going to tell him and its going to be through how he feels not by something speaking to him. So he said he'd pay attention to his feelings next time he reads. As soon as he knows the Book Of Mormon is true I think He'll get Baptised.
I really like Elder Myrvang. He knows alot and is a Very good Missionary. We are having alot of good times and things are cooking down here. Thanks for all your letters and the updates that I get from you all. I love yall. I can't wait to here from ya'll again Love Elder Haws
