hey dad! well this week was a lot better, and interesting. Well as you know I went down to Hattiesburg for a few days for leadership training, it was cool but it was really long. While i was down there elder w and elder b were there too! we hung out the whole time it was really great to see them again. apparently they said that they really miss me back in west Monroe, it was great talking with them again.
...i knew that the pictures they were going to be taking were going to be on the blog for you guys to see so whenever i saw the camera i would think of you guys. well that was the whole hattiesburg thing. back at Vicksburg everything is still same, but its good. Mc goes home in 9 days. I'm doing good though. He's really excited to go home. i get a new companion next week, hopefully i get i good one.
...well this week we had the big storm with all the tornado warnings and stuff, it was crazy! i loved it, and you were right i would love to see a tornado or something i was really hoping to see on this week, but maybe next time. and i also did hear about the japan quake, we were at this office waiting for something for Mc and on the TV all they were talking abut was the quake, i was like whoa, 8.9 is a big earthquake. I'm sure that its going to be on the news for a while.
...that's awesome that A.J.did his eagle project, i can't believe that he's already almost done, it feels really good when you finish it though. it looked pretty good, i looked at the pictures of it that mom sent to me, it looked really good.
well that's about it, that's cool that Bethany is saying the prayer! that's a crazy story! wow i don't know if I'm going to see it but if i do that will be cool to see her. well ill talk to you next week, thanks for the letters, bye!

hey! well this week has been better, the whole leadership training thing made everything better. elder W and B were there! it was so great talking to them! we hung out like the whole time! it was so great talking with them! they told me that they miss me back in west Monroe! we talked alot about how everything was going, and stuff. the actual leadership training was good, but it was also really long, haha!...
.... I'm really glad how everything turned out this week. then after the whole leadership training thing we went back to our areas. i got 3 letters this week, 1 from David and 2 from you. thanks for the letters they really helped alot i got them just at the right time. i feel like I'm doing better, I'm getting a new companion next week and i hope that i get a good one. haha I've had 3 good ones in a row i don't want this routine to break!
well other interesting things this week i guess you can say hat we had some car trouble this week too like AJ. well guess what?! we were driving in the ghetto a few days ago at around 20 miles per hour and all of the sudden a little kid around 8-9 years old jumps in front of our car! Mc slammed on the brakes and we hit him. you know, so we stop the car and get out the parents were freaking out at the kid for jumping in front of us. the kid gets up and and it seemed like he was in shock or something he didn't cry talk or move or anything. the only damage i could see was that he was bleeding a little on his head and that's all. they took him to the hospital just to make sure that everything was alright and everything was. all he had was just that scratch on his head. well the police guy came over to fill out a report and everything was good, then he asked for our ID's. well Mc gave him his and everything was good, then i gave him mine and he wasn't too happy to see it, he said,"your names Jefferson?" he said it in a slightly upset tone of voice. i was like,"yah" then he filled it out and left. Mc said that its because the president of the Confederate states was *Jefferson Davis and it seemed racist or something to him. ...well that was the crazy thing that happened this week, and now I'm up to today! ...thanks for everything! bye!
PS did you tell the clantons to tell Jake that I'm still writing the letter back to him?
*Just for the record...we didn't name Hank after Jefferson Davis! We just liked how it sounded . I guess we should have done our research!
