This is the only pic I have with my comp as of right now. This was our baptism on Saturday. We baptized his mom the week before. They are awesome. Then the other picture is just me wearing Rays suit with my tie. Just trying it out. haha. sorry about not sending more. This week was a great one. I had so much fun and we worked hard. It was a little dissapointing on sunday. We were able to get 6 people in church but a few of those who are really close to baptism didnt go. We need to go see what is going on. I love you all and hope you are well. I PROMISE MOM, I will write more next week. have a great week!! GOod luck Spence!! PS The trip in utah looked like a blast. I loved the pictures. I remember when dad was always showing us around BYU when we were little. Those were the good old days. haha. Drinking that ice cold mountain water from the drinking fountains. haha. Elder Hadley

SPENCER!!!!! RAIDERS!!!!! haha.

Wow I am so happy for you man. You deserve it. I lilked the finger. remember my thumb that I messed up at BYU spence. It still hurts quite a bit. haha. And is still swollen....but I think you got it a little bit worse.

So this week was great. These past few months have been great. We have had the chance to help people enter into the waters of baptism weekly. Its such a miracle to be apart of this work; When we give it our all the Lord blesses us with what we ask. Nothing too crazy happened this week. I left the area for the first time in like 8 weeks. haha. I did not like being away for the 2 days and was super happy to get back. I love my area and the people we are teaching.

I am tired but super happy. I love you all. Sorry this letter isnt very long. To be honest...I dont know what to say anymore. haha. Its the same ol same ol. I hope you all are well!!!

Hey family,
HOw is everyone? Wow mom that is crazy! So many new babies. I had no idea that everyone was prego...I didnt know that Nicole also was expecting. And Caitlyn had a baby?!?! What the crud!! haha. MY mind is blown right now! 

Tell them all I miss them and love them. I miss all of the cousins a ton. I was thinking about it. I am super grateful that we did such a great job to stay so close throughout all of the years. It is such a blessing to have a family like the one I have.

The area is doing really well. The Lord is blessing us a ton. I cant even explain it...Miracles after miracles...I am regreting that these past three months I have been super lazy with writing in my journal....But I still do it. Just not every single day. I was writing every day up until the last week of May. Literally had not missed one day. Then I got transfered and I ran out of time to do it....well not really but time is a lot harder to find. But Dont worry mom. I am writing down and wont forget the experiences that I will tell you all about when I get home. 

We are able to take lots and lots of people to church on Sunday. That is really helping us see lots progress to baptism. Its really an amazing thing to be apart of. The Lord has really helped me and my companions in all of my areas here on the mission. 

We had a meeting last week with President Andrezzo. Wow. That man is inspired by God and when he speaks the presence of The Spirit is so strong. I cant even explain it. He gave us a great training and I learned a lot. This week I have been studying really hard in the Doctrine and Covenants. I spent the entire week studying about DC 84. Its a great section and I learned A LOT!! It was a section I have already read but I decided to sit down and really study it. Lots of Gospel truths are in there. Jesus The Christ is also blowing my mind. haha. Its the second time I am reading it here on the mission and I learn more and more every time a open it. PMG and The Book Of Mormon are amazing. Tell Pat that if he studies The Book of Mormon and PMG before the mission. I mean really studies. It will make all the difference for him when he gets in the field. He will be a missionary with MUCH POWER.  

The scriptures are great and help our faith increase. I am so grateful for them. Study them and say your prayers!! 

Alright family, I love you all and hope you are well. Mom, I will send you next week things you can put in my package. Sound good? Love you all.
