Merry Christmas!

Hello everyone everything is going great here in SLO. First, congratulations to BYU womens volleyball team for the best season ever, and for being the 2nd best team in THE NATION! Also thank you Trina, Gary, JJ and Ashlyn for the package. 
Transfers were a little crazy in the rain, but overall it all worked out and most of the luggage stayed dry. We ended up driving a lot on Tuesday, and it was a long day. We woke up at 4:30and went to bed at 10:30 with non-stop craziness inbetween. I am glad its over. This area has been a little different her for the last week or so. All of the college students have left for home including 90% of our ward, so we went to church in SLO 2nd ward and have been figuring out who is still here. There is still a lot of work to do and we have been able to find a couple new investigators, and teach a bunch of people. YSA age people seem so be a little more willing to talk, but as far as keeping commitments go you never really know until you follow up with them. It has been a great opportunity to get to know our area a whole lot better. 
Elder Kanenwisher is great, I feel bad that he won't meet the ward for a while, but I a grateful to have him as a companion. He is a hard worker and just fearless. I really admire him, and we have only gotten along better and better every day. I am really excited for what this transfer holds with Elder Kanenwisher. 
We had a really cool opportunity to help a lady move out this week and that was a lot of fun. We brought a member with us and the lady was asking him all of the questions about the church, and normally he is pretty quiet but he got to answer them all and told her about what we do, and it turned into a great restoration lesson. She now has a Book of Mormon and we cleared up some misconceptions, so she said she would read it, and pray to find out for herself. She moved to Pismo and is in contact with the missionaries down there. This all started a couple years ago when missionaries were there to help her move in and she kept the number they left for two years and called us up last week. Overall it was a great experience.
You are all great I love you and have a merry Christmas!
Elder Hamson
