Christmas Time is Here!

Dear Family,

Transfers happened. Elder Anderson went home and I got Elder Cannon, really nice guy from Brigham City, he's been out here for one transfer longer then I have, so we're both getting pretty old. Also, all of my sisters from the MTC just went home, we had a great group.
I don't want to sound repetitive, but the main thing that happened this week was V. again. He is now over two weeks clean of alchohol, off of coffee, and slowly taking down smoking. We are hoping that by the time he gets to church on Sunday he will be completely clean. Unfortunetly he still wasn't able to make it to church yesterday because he is still weak, but we went out with him this morning for a practice walk, and he is looking a lot better. The ward has also been a huge help, coming to lessons and giving him a lot of support.
We had a couple of people show up at church yesterday, for I think the first time I have been here. A nice older man that the sisters in Buda just passed over to us, and a less active couple we've been meeting with for a while, only the Dad came, but their active daughter just came back to visit for the Christmas season and so we are hoping she will get them both going and we can keep them coming when she leaves.
I can't think of a lot else that happened, people are starting to say Merry Christmas to us on the streets and when we tract. It's that time of the year again.
