Hi I'm Les Hatch

I'm a Mormon. I grew up in Grangeville and Boise Idaho.

About Me

I am married and have 6 children and 28 grandchildren. I love riding our ATV's with my wife, playing Golf, and reading interesting Novels. I am retired, and enjoy traveling with my wife to all the great sites this great country offers, and to visit our family and relatives, who bring so much happiness into our lives.

Why I am a Mormon

My life has been so much more meaningful since I became active in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. The Church has offered myself and my family the structure that has allowed us to understand why we are here on this Earth, where did we come from, and what can we expect, if we follow the teachings of our Savior Jesus Christ.

How I live my faith

Living my faith as a "MORMON" is not hard. Our church gives each member the opportunity to use our God given talents to improve ourselves and those who we come in contact with. By caring out my responsibilities, as a member of the Church, I teach myself, and those who I work with the steps involved in attaining the opportunity to live again with our Father in Heaven. Specifically, I have been called to work in the Mesa Arizona Temple as an Ordinance Worker, where I help worthy members work out their personal progress, and to provide these members with the ordinances they need to fulfill their requirements offered so they can return to live with their Eternal Father in Heaven. My wife and I have also been called to serve at the Randolph Training Center in Randolph, Arizona. Here we meet each Sunday Morning, and provide the patients there, who are extremely physically handicapped, with a hour and a half of songs and games that help them to have a more active life. We are assisted by many youths from other areas, who come and help us to make sure that each person has at least 2 persons to assist them. I personally have found, and my family also, that with the structure provided by the Church it is easy to follow what we feel will help us attain our Spiritual Goals
