HAPPY BIRTHDAY MAA !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The big 53 huh ??? How do you feel ? ;] I hope you have a great birthday Mama !!! Well the reunion sounded like a great time, Im glad everyone returned home safely. Well... things are going good, we have two investigators that we are meeting with and miracles are in the making. Yesterday at church I taught the "Gospel Principles" class and it was on "Eternal marriage." There is a couple where the husband just started coming back to church and his wife was baptized right before I got here and they are amazing !!!! He is such a cool guy and makes the best bbq I have ever had in my life ! haha But it was really cool to see there testimonies being strengthened as they are preparing to be sealed in the temple some day. It also made me so thankful for the gospel and the opportunity I will have someday to be sealed to Stacy for not just this life but for eternity. The blessings that are available through a temple marriage is beyond our comprehension. It is without a doubt ordained of God. Then we were asked to talk about missionary work with the deacon and teacher quorums. It was a great experience and strengthened my testimony to see all these young men choosing the right and following Jesus Christ. The youth here are preparing to leave for the "trek." They leave on Wednesday and it is in Wyoming. The church is true and God is our loving Heavenly Father who has provided a way for us to be happy in this life and return to him someday.

Love you all and appreciate your prayers !
Elder Hathcock

I forgot to tell you ! We had interviews and President Anderson is incredible !!!! I love him and am looking forward to serving under his direction !!! He gave me some great counsel in my interview and he said he is so excited to serve with me and it made me feel great !!! His wife is a little shy but that will change Im sure.

  1. Hi there Elder Hathcock! So wonderful to hear about your experiences in the mission field! You are a great example to your friends and family. However, I won't read your last posting to my husband, Brett, can I put it?...his feelings may be hurt. To quote..."He is such a cool guy and makes the best bbq I have ever had in my life !" You know that Brett Walker makes the best bbq and you helped him achieve it at the last bbq at the Ashcraft's. Just kidding!! Thanks again for your testimony, hard work, and great example. Love, the Walkers (Brett and Nancy)
