This letter was sent April 10th. The post before it was written April 3rd, but I just posted them both today, so you may want to read that one first:)

Dear Family!!

How is everything going?! Well everything on my mission is just wonderful. I absolutely LOVED General Conference so much!! Wow it is just incredible!! It's amazing...before my mission I thought it was kind of boring and didn't really pay that much attention....but oh boy....now I seriously love it. I pay attention the whole time, all 10 hours and I take notes!! I have learned so much and am always trying to improve and become a better person and missionary!! I hope all of you guys listened and are trying to change some things to improve on becoming better overall people.

This letter is not going to be all that long...I'm sorry. I emailed Ryan and sent him a long email. Please make sure he gets to read. Thanks :) Well sounds like your all just doing great. I cant believe its snowing where we live!! What the heck is wrong with Utah weather hahaha. I'm glad you guys are in St George and enjoying some warmer weather down there. Mom you asked about the weather and stuff here in Whangarei. It is kinda like St George but I think it is colder still or something. There are a lot of palm trees and its definitely warmer part of New Zealand. I love it here. Our area is a lot smaller than my last one and we bike around all day long. There are so many hills and its kinda hard sometimes to bike up them haha. But my legs are getting really big! This past week I have just been really trying to be way more full of the spirit and have more and more faith. We are definitely working so hard and just doing a lot of great things...but we are not seeing as much success as I have in my last areas. This area is a lot harder for missionary work wise than my last. But I know that has nothing to do with having success. No matter where you are the Lord has prepared people to receive the gospel. I just have to increase my faith and follow the spirit always. We are still seeing a lot of miracles and teach a lot of people. Its just really hard to help them make it to the last step of getting baptized.

It was great to hear from cousins and family and everything. That is awesome that Jessie and Krissy went on a cruise. Sounds like they are having a blast. I'm sure you guys are having a great time in St George too. Tell all the family hi for me :) It was cool to hear that Ryan and Talon went to prom down there. The pictures were very nice. They all look like they had a great time. I'm sure dad that you are going golfing and loving it. That's cool you guys are going to go on a trip to Arizona have a great time. Well I'm sorry...I got to go now. I know you guys are sad when the letters are short. I will try and make it up next week. I love you all so very much. Have a great week. Love Elder Kitchen
