Dear Family,

How is everyone doing?  How is the summer going so far for everyone?  I hope you all are safe and having fun with whatever you are doing.  Sorry it took so long for me to write you guys back.  As for my mission, in 6 days I will have been out here for 6 months.  It is crazy how fast time is going by.  It seems like it wasn't that long ago that I said goodbye to all of you before going to the MTC.  I can't believe that I almost past up this experience by not going.  It has helped me grow more than anything else could have.  It also has helped me appreciate you guys more.  There is a member in my ward right now that is moving up to Cedar City in a couple days and last week when my companion and I had dinner with him he wanted me to tell you guys that he and his wife are grateful for the sacrifice that you guys are making while I am out here on a mission.  I am going to have another baptism tomorrow.  The lady that is getting baptized walked into church the Sunday before I came to this ward and told the missionaries who were here that her uncle told her if she ever needed a church that she should go to the Mormon church on Pacific.  We have been teaching her since I got here and have set 3 dates with her but because of things that keep coming up we had to keep pushing it back.  So it will be good to have her get baptized tomorrow cause Satan has been working really hard to prevent her from getting baptized.  I am really enjoying this area and my mission even though the heat is not fun.  I know that I am still the same Taylor, but at the same time I feel like a different person than I was before the MTC, it's really strange.  Thanks for all of the things that you have done for me in my life.  I know that I wouldn't be the person I am today if it wasn't for the example that you all set for me in my life.  That includes you too Del, Don, and Kaytie, even though you are younger than me.  I love you all.  I hope all is well.

Love ya,

Elder Taylor T. Gull
