Hey Hamblin Family,
So this week was AWESOME!!!! I had tons of
fun! You guys sent a HUGE LETTER!!!!! I hope I can answer it to the best
of my ability and time has to offer!
Okay so here's the low
down! MOM! Check out this scripture. Isaiah 5:20 Its about all them
rotten Intermediate school punks! AND I GOT THE PACKAGE!!!!! Those Oreos
are gone man. I loved it! I'm wearing a pair of them fancy socks as I
am typing to you. I love it! Oh and I might wear the tie to Zone
meeting if President Carlos doesn't show up! HEY we did a Banana Tree
CSP! WE cleaned up these banana trees cause they had dead leaves on them.
WE chopped down a big one! It was awesome and we got a TON of Bananas. I
think my shorts I got from my trainer got a little messed up! I'll try
and send some pictures. I got a great video but its too big! I've got a
friend who says that there is a free website called Flicker that may help
us out. Go check it out when you have some free time.
Bro. Uci the one that was having some troubles with his
family. HE is going to be baptized on the 28th of July! If all goes
well. HE is a stud and I wish him the best of luck. I hope I don't get
transferred because I want to see this happen. I love this guy! Anyway.
When I asked him if we would follow the example of Jesus Christ and be
baptized he said OF COURSE! I want to know HOW! NOW we just have to help
him stop smoking and drinking Iced tea! NO PROB! I love the gospel.
It's good stuff. It helps change peoples lives. SO I also got a story
about a weird area I had to go to to do a Baptismal Interview. It was in
a Housing division called WONDERLAND! That's right I went to Wonderland
on my mission. It was hilarious. Nothing weird there except the name
SO now for some questions
HAPPY FATHERS DAY!!!!!! I love ya! I hope you loved your
father's day gift. I hope that all is well with you. I hope that you are
having a wonderful time being the tatay and holding the fort down. I
miss all the jokes and good times with you pop. I miss all the good
stuff! The Hiking trip to half dome sounds AWESOME and INTENSE! I hope
nobody DIES! I think that you'll be alright. I hope you're still not
training for Thanksgiving dinner! JK I love ya pops. Hey I heard ALL
about Monty Paquio. And MAN the Philippines was in an uproar! I think
they want a rematch. I got to see the whole thing while my comp watched
it on youtube. It was pretty cool. I liked it! I don't know boxing
doesn't really capture my interest. So I hope you remember that you're not
some young spring chicken anymore pops. You got to have your fathers
day nap ya know? ha ha :D I hope you are having a good time. I hope you
aren't trying to burn the candle at both ends again. I love you pops. I
hope you know that. I find myself expressing more love through my emails
than I really did at home. It's amazing what you can take for granted.
Your talk sounded awesome and I wish I could have been there. I love
hearing your talks. I love hearing talks PERIOD! I think that it's
becoming one of my hobbies.Well one last time HAPPY FATHERS DAY!!! I
love you pops and enjoy being one!
I loved your surprise for Dad.
CHRISTMAS IN JUNE!!! (With the help of a kind neighbor and brother in the ward, we put up 4 outlets under the roof line to plug in Christmas lights and a switch inside to just flip the lights on and off) Why didn't I think of that! You really know us
better than we know ourselves sometimes mom. Don't worry I am doing
fine. I think we really are turning this companionship around and
becoming a divine companionship. I loved the part about your tough
companion. She sounds like an interesting case. I will endure to the end
and things will be better because of it! I loved your 2 bits about
Shannon's wedding. That's pretty funny! I think that she will have a good
guy that will help her stay on track! She still loves animals right? At
least like 15 dogs and cats. some mice and couple birds. It's like a
ZOO over there most days! I love it. I'll never forget the Mcdo at 3 in
the morning. Looking for egg shell colored paper for her 3rd wedding. while
my parents are on a beach somewhere. Bummer. JK I forgive you for that
one Mom. Love you both! I hope that all is well in Dayton. I don't mean
to give you such a hard time with the trunky stuff MOm. I just love
teasing you with it! I love ya mom! P.S. Do you really want me to buy Shay a butterfly knife? I can get one for cheap but I just would like to
get your opinion on this! Thanks Love ya!
I loved your bit about EFY! Your
councilor sounded like the bomb! Did you all stay for ALL of EFY? JK I
loved all the stuff! I won't forget the knife! I got one in sights.
Anyways, I hope you are doing good with school now that you are all
grown up now! Good luck at half dome dude. It really isn't that bad
until the very end but when you climb up and reach the peak. I think
that you will finally know why its all worth it. You will find all sorts
of people up there. Old people and young people. People with guitars and
other instruments. You'll have tons of fun! Don't go and give your
parents a heart attack! They love ya and are doing fine with being
parents but there is a reason why you have all those girls numbers. Your
charisma levels are through the roof! You have a way with women and
therefore Mom and Pop are going to keep an extra close eye on you. It
may seem annoying but they are just trying to protect you. Thus your
cell phone problem. Earn their trust by making good decisions. Then
you shall obtain your cell phone after you prove that you are worthy and
responsible enough for it! That's how old people work dude. You got to
EARN the cell phone. Don't worry I believe in you! Love Elder Hamblin
Your movie was Ever After!!!!
I love it. It's such a chick flick but I love it and I always will!
Okay here's my movie.
"We're going to make PIZZA PLANTS!" or
EVAAAAAA! Try that out! I hope you get it! Hey your job sounds pretty
cool! I hope that it pays well and you get other stuff in there too! You
will be making money in no time! I believe that! You are gonna get that
license you are going to be a crazy independent woman when I get back
with some dashing young man that is gonna treat you right! I believe in
you Devrs. Even though I don't want you to grow up to fast I know that
it's what you are gonna have to do while I'm gone so. I will pray for you
and for Shay and for Dane to be all that you need to be. AN EXAMPLE OF
RIGHTEOUSNESS! YA! Got to love it!
Hey you know that Kyle XY is awesome but there are some
episodes that are just STUPID! I bet you have run into a few of them by
now. Those episodes are just that TV show turning into a teen soap
opera. SO don't worry about it. Just skip to the cool stuff like Kyle
kickin butt! That was always my favorite part! WELL stay safe and happy
TOO! Love Elder Hamblin
Hey bud how you holding up?
I still don't have a six pack. I need to get out and RUN! I hope that
the running will take off the fat so you can see the six pack! Calvin
and Hobbs was one of my favorite comics when I was a lad! I wish that I
could have gotten more of their comics. I hope that I will someday after
my mission. How are the new video movies treating you? Whats your favorite movie
right now? I hope that you don't waste too much time in front of the TV! I
love you little bro and I only want the best for you! Keep on feeling
better for me alright? I love you Dane and I just want the best for you.
It sounded like you had tons of fun with your friends and such slip n
and sliding all over the place. You sure do know how to have fun! We got
to go down to the river when I get back alright? I love you!
Big brother Elder Hamblin

me to be right now. I want you all to know that you are in my thoughts
and in my prayers everyday and every night! Love you!!!
