Dear baby Sophe,
I love you! thanks for writing me! my favorite color is sea green. Your school sounds awesome. You probably look so cute with your haircut and a uniform. I hope you have tons of fun playing with Jier and working out! I love you.

Dear Brockly,
Dude don't worry about those refs! They probably need glasses anyway. I hope you're hitting hard, but don't get hurt. Your teacher sounds awesome, does she give you candy? Love you Brock! Keep working hard and being good!

Dear Family,
I'm so glad to hear from you and to hear that you had such a good family home evening. Right now I look back on the big spiritual experiences like that that I've had in my life and I am so grateful for them. Those are times when God is letting you know that He is there and that He lives. I can't express how important it is to seek after experiences like that.
Things have been going great this week. I went on an exchange with one of the zone leaders. The whole time I was with him he had hunter like instincts in searching for service opportunities. We helped some people rearrange their shop, we helped a lady clean a cooler and carry out to the a car, and we helped this lady carry a bunch of empty beer cases to a garbage can. It was awesome. I've never felt like that before on my mission so far. His name is Elder Snow and he is a good missionary. He is really funny and can make everyone laugh. I think a lot of your prayers were answered last week. I am doing so much better at talking to everyone and laughing with them. It was a really good week this week.
Greg's letter is hillarious because it's almost exactly like out here. There is only the nasty box milk and no tortillas. It is really really hot right now and I have a tiny little bit of athletes foot on one of my feet but it's going away. Last week a cyclone I guess passed by the island but it didn't hit us. There were the biggest waves I've ever seen in my life, it was so cool.
We have an investigator that is going to be baptized.
We weren't able to set a date with him yet and he didn't come to church yesterday because he had to go tell the priest at his previous church about it... he said. But he is a good person. We met him when he randomly showed up at church one week. He said he talked to missionaries one time. We couldn't find anything in the area book about him but last night I found a pass along card on the ground that was from the missionaries that were here about a year ago and they had written his address and last name on it. So it just goes to show you that maybe one of these days someone that we shared a little message with then never saw again will come to church in a year and want to be baptized.
Thanks for writing me and sending me a package! love you!
-Elder Hill
