hey dad. well as long as youre glad you wont see me, i guess that makes me feel better.
haha. so how did you fall on your knees while walking the dogs? did they just pull
really hard? are you doing ok? i'm glad to hear you're staying busy. how's school
going? can you believe it's almost christmas? time just flies by. if people ask about
me, tell them the work is going well and the people here are really responsive to the
gospel message. i know this message is true and i'm grateful for the opportunity to
help others understand it more fully. i've seen it's blessings in the lives of others,
and i cant deny the truth of it. take care and have a good week, dad.

hey ma!
yes thanksgiving dinner was good. but i still missed yours. i'm glad i've been out for a few months, so it just felt normal to be away from home. we all got together as a zone and had fun. played games and just talked and got to know each other. thanks so much for the pics mom. they are awesome. i love the one of everyone at thanksgiving. abby is such a goof. can you believe it's december already? where is the time going. is dad going to have a cool french club party? hopefully youll be able to go. how is everything going at home>? are you and dad finding enough things to do to keep yourselves occupied? haha. i'm glad brit and matt are going to be able to make it down for christmas. that sounds like it should be a lot of fun. things here are going well. we havent had anymore baptisms since the ones in october. sometimes things just dont go the way you planned, but we have some in our future. we've got really good investigators. one guy, the second time we met him told us he already knew the message we taught was true, so needless to say we were pretty happy. so was he. nothing but smiles. it's so great to see how much this message can make people's lives better. everyday, i feel like i understand a little bit more, and every day i'm happier. i'm so pleased with my decision to come out. the teaching is going really well. i feel like i improve every day. i remember back to the first day i was out and i couldnt say anything. i feel much better about things now. we had a cool district meeting on really using the scriptures when we teach, so we're working hard on that. the language is going well, too. i feel like i can express myself so much better now, and i find new ways to explain the gospel every day, although i still sound like a white guy. haha. anyways, i'm really glad you sent me this letter. the pictures really are the best. thanks for everything mom. know that i love you.
love, elder hill
