Merry Christmas (Dec 9)

Hello again from Tuskegee,
Well.... another week here in the wonderful town of tuskegee has passed by. I can't believe that i have already been here for 8 weeks. time is flying by. Things are going really good though. Elder Robison and i found this family like 2 weeks before he left and we were able to teach them once then we lost contact and couldn't get a hold of them then he left and took their number so we had no way of finding them. I finally called around and found Elder Robisons new number and got their number. (they are the smiths) SO Elder Myrvang and i have been teaching them and they are way excited.
We started teaching because the mom had been taught by missionaries before about 4 years ago but the smiths moved the same time the missionaries got flushed( 2 new missionaries at the same time) into the area. So they lost contact with them. Mrs.Smith also wanted to see how her oldest daughter J'hia would react cuz she was claiming to be an athiest. (she is only 15) so we taught about the restoration and about joseph smith and how there is a prophet on the Earth today. J'hia got way excited and wants to meet him so bad. she gets on the internet and looks stuff up about him and just loves it. She also wants to get baptised but her mom wants her to learn alittle bit more first which is fine with me. The whole Family though is way cool and they actually keep their appointment which is almost non existent here. nobody keeps their appointments. I'm way happy for them.
Lark is also coming along great. Hes been on probation for 3 years and was supposed to get off monday but hasn't yet but he said he was going to move out of his girl friends house so that as soon as he gets off BAM!!! he can get baptized. He is so great. He is really funny too. OH mom and dad he said he wants to come live with me when i get back so keep that in mind. MaryAnn or Lindsey he is only 26 and is going to be single. He doesn't like his girl friend very much so..... you can finish the rest! haha I'm doing great though i love all the letters i get from everyone. I can't wait to call home for christmas. Is everyone going to be at the house or am i going to need to call everyone seperate? just let me know so i can make arrangements to call and what not.
I love you all though and i'm having a blast. ! :) there is a ton of literally crazy things and people here so there is never a dull moment. Thnks for all your prayers and buddy thanks for the package from your family tell Sara thanks for me aswell. I don't have her e-mail address.
Love you all Elder Haws
