it doesn't get old.

every time i get a letter
it feels like christmas..but better.
i got two in a row last week.
but that is not why i'm telling you about this.
i'm telling you because i got a picture.
and thought you'd like to see.
elder hatch, elder kakishita, elder nishijima, elder checketts
the kid next to layt? that's his companion.
i have a feeling this picture sums up his personality.
so blessed to know such an amazing man!
sorry for the poor picture quality.

love to all.


my friend nelson called me last night.
he was visiting utah for the weekend, and got to go visit the mtc.
he said layt looks amazing.

and he does.
dang i miss him.
but i am so grateful he is where he is.

love to all.
