HAPPY FATHER'S DAY POP's !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Thanks for all you do and for the great father you have been to me in my life. As always, I pray I can be half the man you are ! Hope you have a glorious Father's Day.

It was a busy week of meetings, but they have been very revelatory and the things we discussed were exactly what our mission needs. I am so grateful for my knowledge of the Spirit. It truly is as the scriptures say. The Spirit testifies of truth and of our Savior Jesus Christ. I know of the truths I am apart of because the Spirit of God has confirmed them to me. Elder Bischoff is having a tough time accepting that his mission is coming to an end. He is a great missionary and you know by what he says and does that he loves his Savior Jesus Christ. We have been pretty worn out and are grateful that we will have a "p-day" tomorrow to be able to recoup.

In our meetings this past week we had the privilege to watch a talk by Elder Jeffrey R. Holland (a member of the quorum o the 12 Apostles) that he gave in the "MTC" just TWO DAYS after I left, on Jan-11-2011. I barely missed it !!! Anyways, he talks about the experience that Peter has in (St John ch 21). There are so many things that I got from this talk that have been beneficial but there is one thing in particular that stood out on Friday. It is where he talks about "leaving our nets." I thought about the "nets" I have left behind in my life in order to serve God and how I NEVER want to return to them. It is something that I invite us all to do, is to think of the "nets" in our lives that we can do without. As we let go of these "nets" I know we will be happier and will see countless blessings in our lives. A question we can ask ourselves everyday is "do I love Him?" If you love him then feed his sheep. I love my Father in Heaven and Savior Jesus Christ, I am NOTHING without them. I love you all and am grateful for your love, support and prayers.

Good Morning !!! It has been a great week !!!!! We had a group of missionaries who hit their halfway mark on their missions. In our mission we have them all come together and have, what we call a "Temple Jubilee." We take them to the temple for the day. It was a great group of missionaries. I was very grateful for the opportunity that I had to attend the temple. We were able to do baptisms and confirmations, as well as an endowment session. There is no better place to experience the Spirit of God than in the temple. I feel so blessed to be able to go in such a holy place. After the temple, we headed to the mission home for supper. It was a delicious ham dinner that Sister Anderson prepared. Then we watched a really cool video on the temple, specifically about the symbolism of the temple. It was a glorious experience ! We were able to teach Jerry about the "Plan of Salvation" and afterwards he knew it was Gods plan. The spirit was so strong !! We are still trying to help him figure out what day he should be baptized. Its tough because his schedule is always changing. He is in the ARMY and has a lot going on right now. He is coming to church again today so we are pumped to see him there. I have been so busy but I need to write Nancy soon. I sure do miss her and Luli. I heard she is doing great, so that's good. I hope YaYa had a glorious birthday yesterday ! Hopefully she was able to get work off and do something fun with Bunjamin. :] We have some "Specialized Training" that we are doing all this week in the various zones of the mission. So we are leaving for Kansas right after church today and starting tomorrow. Busy and tiring week ahead, but I feel bad even saying that cause poor President Anderson never gets any sleep. He is a machine !!! I love you all and am so grateful for each of you everyday of my life !!!!!!!!!!!!!!
PS: I'm sure you heard about Stacy's plans. Isn't it awesome ?!!! The blessings of serving the Lord, its amazing !!!
p.s.s. I did read the thing about the video for the AP camp but I honestly don't know when I would be able to. I would really like to do it but I dont know. :[ Also, if you could ask Stacy if she is still sending me that other camera sd card I would really appreciate it. I need one so I can take pictures.
Love, Elder Hathcock
