I asked Tyler to let us know what things he does as an AP-here is his response and it's the only letter that we got this week besides his comment about Lacey and Jake's new baby girl! 

Hi !
As AP, I have a lot of things to do. We take care of a lot of office stuff, but I'll name a few.
I record statistics and take care of mile reimbursements for vehicles. We are in contact with President Anderson on a daily basis to take care of anything he wants us to do. Every night we talk to the zone leaders to see how the missionary work is going and we proselyte when we have time.
Luckily we were able to go out and work the last three days. It has been great !!! We have three investigators preparing for baptism right now. It is amazing to see how the Lord prepares people. I got a letter from Nancy the other day ! It was awesome cause she shared about what a great experience she had at the temple.
There are still a lot of things I still need to learn in the office but Elder Schmidt is helping me out a lot.  Did I tell you that Elder Schmidt is from Mesa, AZ? He grew up right by where we used to lived!  He knew the Goffs. We were talking the other day about how much we miss "Bahama Bucks" shaved ice!
Oh, another thing we do as AP's that is cool is we go with President and Sister Anderson to pick up new missionaries at the airport. We do some training with them for a few days. It is a great experience to see these new missionaries eager to do the Lord's work. It was weird going to the airport and re-living my first day in the mission. We also take departing missionaries to the airport, but I have not done that yet.
I am loving my mission and am so happy. This is the greatest work I  have ever done!
I love you all !!!

Assistant to the President is the highest level of leadership a missionary can reach while on his mission. They are charged with helping the Mission President with any duties he may need done. SO proud of our Elder Hathcock!!!!
Aww, I am bummed you couldn't go to the temple with Stacy. And YaYa went to the wrong session ?!!! HAHA Anyways, I have been called as the new AP (Assistant to the President) so it has been a stressful past couple of days. But I could not ask for better companions, Elders Schmidt and Bischoff. There are a lot of things I need to learn (logistic things). We are in a "trio" because they are training me and then Elder Schmidt is going to train a new missionary his last two transfers. Nancy had a great experience at the temple, we weren't able to do her parents names but they will be done soon enough. She had the biggest smile on her face, it was beautiful !!!! It was hard to say goodbye but I told her it was just "see you later."
Love you Maa !!!!

I hope everyone had a gloooorious Easter Sunday !!! Mine was very glorious !!! Church was great ! We had dinner at the McConkie's, it was a delicious ham dinner. Elder Henslee was excited to see Hyrum Smith's walking cane and John Tanner's chair at their house.

To answer your question Maa, things are going great with Elder Henslee. He reminds me of how Pops probably was as a missionary. HA ! He keeps on messing with my head though. He talks as if he knows something. He has me thinking that I might be leaving after this transfer. This is the last transfer of the week. This next transfer is Elder Henslee's last one ! So don't send anything to my exact address until after transfers.

So my P-day will be next Tuesday because of transfers.

I saw Elder Clegg the other day for interviews. I get to see him every now and then. He's doing great !!! I pray that all is well with everyone.
I love you all,
Elder Hathcock

Tyler was in training and zone conferences all day Monday and Tuesday so he wrote us today.
Hello everyone !!!!!!!!!!! It looks like Pops birthday bash was a good time. I loved the pictures !!! General conference was GLOOOORIOUS !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I love Elder Holland !!!!!! He is my kind of guy. All the talks had very great things that helped me strengthen my testimony of my Savior and this church. I think the thing that stood out to me the most was the focus about families and how important the family is to our Heavenly Father. I look forward to the day that I get to start a family of my own. I have what Stacy calls, "baby fever" HAHAHA !!! I watched conference at our ward mission leaders home (David James). He was out of town, so we watched it with his wife and Nancy and some others that they invited. Nancy had a great experience, she told us how the Spirit confirmed to her that the Prophet and Apostles were in fact men called of God and that this is his church on the earth. She has been so happy since she has been baptized and received the gift of the Holy Ghost and been a member of the church. She is going to the temple on the 14th to do baptisms for the deceased. The amazing thing is, is that the 14th is her mothers birthday ! Her parents have been dead for a while now but we are helping her be able to do their temple work that day . She is so excited !!! I love being a servant of the Lord !!! I love you all and I testify that Thomas S. Monson is Gods living Prophet on the earth !!!!!!!
