Hahaha that cracks me up about the neighborhood Christmas gift! Elder Hudson is a great guy. And yeah that's not the exact apartment building but you're close! I heard Star Wars was the bomb and super bummed I couldn't go see it.

Anyway the ward here is awesome. Everyone is friendly and loves having the missionaries over for dinner and everyone who can't drink tea, drinks cool aide. EVERYONE. I'm so sick of cool aide. But I love the members here and they love us. Thanks for your advice last week. I'm trying it out and hoping it will work. I've been pretty good though last week. I haven't really had any struggles yet but I'm sure they'll come. So thanks for your help!

I don't have grandma and grandpa Gibbons email. Could you send that to me so I could thank them? Also grandma and grandpa so winkels email.

Love you much
- Elder Caleb Gibbons

> I hope this email finds you well.  The two pictures that I'm attaching give you an idea of the fun we've been having.  When you get your package, take a minute and read Sariah's note to you.  It's super funny and she was writing it as I took this picture.  The Stevens family had just delivered a christmas gift to us and Mom had spent all week doing the same neighborhood gift (the Sprite bottles).  Mom was frustrated and you will enjoy Sariah's letter as a result.  The second photo is of Sariah walking across the field toward the Stevens' house with our neighborhood gift..
> So... Elder Hudson.  I hope that he is a great missionary and that you are learning a lot from him.  I'm sure the mission president made the best decision he could in choosing your campanion.  I'm really interested to hear how you're doing.
> I'm curious about where you live, whether you live with another companionship, etc.  I didn't ever live in a foursome on my mission although there were several elders who did.  Anyway, I'm super excited to hear how things are.  I'm also wondering about your first week at church, if you're in a ward that has a good WML and it active in helping the missionaries.
> I am wondering what time you write usually.  Maybe mom and I can get on at the same time and we can communicate in "almost" real-time.  If you're ever feeling like you'd like a little more immediate response, that's a way we could do it.
> I hope you don't get tired of my many emails.  I find that email makes it easy for me to write something quick and get it out to you.  I think I'll get my old letters and start sending them to you for kicks.  You might enjoy seeing the things I was dealing with on my mission.  You'll have to let me know once I start.
> Take care and have a great week.
