I don't have very much to write ether sadly... Nothing excited happened this last week other than talking to you guys and having Christmas dinner with some other missionaries at this Mexican ladies house! I was some pretty good food!
Joel came to church on Sunday! That wasn't to much of a shock considering he is a rad cat! We are planning on baptizing him on the 17 of January, but I probably already told you that! jaja

Oh we did go Christmas caroling on Christmas Eve! that was pretty gnarly! I even made a maraca for when we sang Feliz Navidad to the Hispanics!! jaja it was super fun and then a bunch of Elders came over to our house and we had turkey that we got from the salvation army, they gave us some because we helped them out! Thank you salvation army!! jaja it was alot of fun we played stuff like Janga, Pig using the nerf basketball hope, and one of my personal favorites Scum!!!
It was awesome to talk all of you too, I enjoyed it a lot, it did make me home sick for a little, but i'm all good now
Eliza kinda reminds me of Mike Wazowski in that last photo!!jaja
Sorry Eliza!
Anyways love you guys and hope you are all doing well!!!

Feliz Navidad!!!

This week has gone by a lot slower than others, but not because it was boring, it just seemed like it took forever! I am super excited for Christmas! We've already found a place to skype! The dad works for Verizon so he said he had like 20 tablets laying around the house that we could use!! jaja I'm glad you guys liked those videos, they were super fun to make! Just make sure they get to dad as well! 


For service this week we helped out the salvation army! We were invited to come help by our old friend Jack Adams, the old dude who dropped a while ago, and it was a blast!! We were all put into an assembly line and we packed food into bags for people to come and get for Christmas, we also helped people pick out toys for their kids and then carried all of their stuff they got out to their car, and after we would help them we would give them, "he is the gift" cards and told them that Jesus loves them, it was a pretty rad experience!

I think I might have told you about Joel already, but if I haven't he is our awesome new Investigator who came from Utah, and was being taught by the sisters up there, but he moved so now we teach him and he is doing awesome! He had a smoking problem, but that didn't last too long after we gave his a blessing! jaja he hasn't smoked in a whole week, its amazing! We are planning to baptize him on the 17th of January, he just needs to come to church more!

PS thanks for the "He is the Gift" cards you gave me but I've already got like thousands!

Holiday Cheermyster?

I thought Tressa might like this little guy!!

Funny you should talk about being the Holiday Cheermyster, we were visiting a less active family yesterday who is going through some struggles right now and guess what they were watching when we came in? The Grinch!! jaja it was at the part where he was being dubbed Holiday Cheermyster, Just a little tender mercy of the lord i guess jaja

Anyways this week has been pretty good, not our best, but that is because we had two meetings this week that took up most of our day. The first one was the Zone training meeting, which was pretty fun! Me and Elder Webb made a skit which I thought was pretty great, but it probably wasn't funny at all... jaja! The next day we had a Zone Conference in States Burro it was pretty fun! I got to see some familiar faces! 
Nothing else really happened, but our ward mission leader is a taxidermist so he got us some dear leather so we could make some home made moccasins! I'm pretty excited about that!!! 

Love you all a whole lot!!

Everyone in the Pooler house is staying!

Like always I'm doing pretty grand! So transfer call was on Saturday, and guess what, all of the guys in the Pooler house are staying!!!! It was a pretty big shocker to hear that, I was almost sure that at least one of us was leaving, but nope! I have no idea when I can call you guys on Skype, or how long, but they let us call you on Christmas Eve to tell you! 

This week has been a pretty good one! I went on exchanges with Elder Murphy for a second time! this time we were in his area, we had a really fun time! there was a shooting right across the street from us... but that just helped us get more contacts, because a bunch of police cars came over and stuff so people started asking us what was going on, we told them that we didn't know, and then taught them about our church and the "He is the Gift" video! I also got a new suit from a member from his area!! she was super nice and the suit didn't fit anyone in there family so she just gave it me!! I will have to get the sleeves and pants hemmed up, but other than that it is a wicked suit!!

We met new guy this week named Joel Nava, who is very interested in the church! he is actually from Utah and was being taught be Sister Missionaries before he came down here! He is super nice and he went to church! A lot of people came to on Sunday, probably one our best days! One of our investigators named Jasmine came with her husband and her two year old baby! We met here randomly on the street one day while we were biking to Denise's house, she is only 18 and is still in High School, I don't know how she does it!

I hit my four month mark on Saturday, wow times going by fast!

Thanks! and again thank you for all of the pictures you send I love to see what is going on! I'm super excited for Christmas as well!! getting to be able to talk to you guys and my dad is going to be awesome!!!

Wish Matthew good luck for me, it sounds like he is going to have alot of fun!

Christmas is the most wonderful time of the year as long as you let it be! it can turn into the most stressful if you don't take time to remember why we are celebrating this awesome holiday!!

I love you all!

Thanksgiving was tough!!!

Thanksgiving was tough!!! We had four dinner appointments, and by the end I almost fell asleep on a members couch! I did learn something though! "Hispanics are really good at making Thanksgiving food!" our best appointment was our last one, that we had with a Hispanic family! and yes I did get the package, thanks!

Transfers are next week, but I'm probably not going anywhere, pero quien sabe? I hope that me and Elder Webb stay together another transfer. 


As for how this week has gone, it has gone pretty well! The days have been flying by its crazy how fast time is going by here! We did have a flat tire on Wednesday, that kinda stunk, because we had to hang out at car shop for a couple of hours, but other than that nothing too amazing happened this week, it just peachy down here in Georgia! Sorry not my longest letter. I love you all and miss you!!!
