Dear Grandson Jonathan,
Think of you and love you every day. So happy to have the picture of you and your companion in France. We will always be with you in Spirit. Hope you received the letter and picture we sent to the mission office for you. We loved every word of General Conference. We met in a beautiful building in the middle of a the run down area in downtown Detroit.
Love GG Hoopes

Hey Grandma and Grandpa!

It's good to know that you two are still alive in downtown detriot! I hope all is going well. We are really busy here and we are just working as hard as we can! I hope that you keep up the good work. Don't slow down for one minute! I love you both and pray for you!

To The Family

Things here are going really well. This next week we hope to line up three more baptismal dates! So thats pretty exciting! They are all African also! I'm telling you the africans here are the best because they haven't been raised in this kinda society and environment. They a
re humble and loving! We're going to set a date with...Amie means investigator or friend. Her name is Justine. She has gone through a lot of hard times in her life like most recently her home burnt down... Tough stuff but she is strong catholic and is completely relying on the Savior. So we are setting a date with her this week! Because she was fellowshipped in the ward and came to church she wants to be baptized! Let that be a good lesson about taking friends and other people to church with you! There is a special unity within the church. It's the love of God. Love the ward and do all you can to make it stronger! Be an example of a strong example of missionary in the ward. Romans 1:18 I am not ashamed of the Gospel of Jesus Christ! Dont be embarrassed to be a missionary!
BTW so far the best boulangerie i've been to is just outside of centre ville. They have this Strawberry Shortcake Tart that is my favorite so far! And our Usual lunch is Baguette and Cheese!!! I love it here! I love you all so much and i hope that you like the pictures! Love Elder Hoopes
