hey mom whats up! well I'm getting transferred this week, I'm going to Pass Christian, Mississippi! It's pronounced pass krish-ti-an. I don't know why but that's how its pronounced. My new companion is going to be Elder D____. Elder B_____ trained him when he first came out. I'm a little bummed leaving Vicksburg, I was just getting used to it like this transfer and now I'm leaving. I wonder how long I'm going to be in my next area. Well it's pretty cool that I'm going to be on the coast just in time for hurricane season, haha! I'm nervous though going into a new area with a new companion and stuff but its probably where I'm supposed to be. There's alot going on in the world right now, the tornado that hit Mississippi and Alabama we've heard was crazy. We're fine here in Vicksburg but its crazy though. The death toll is up to like 300 or something like that. In our ward here they asked for anybody who could go to the cleanup next week instead of church out in the Tupelo area. We would totally help out in, but its really far from Vicksburg. If we were closer we would probably help out.
And also the Mississippi river is flooding. Its a really serious thing because a lot of homes and property may get damaged. The river is seriously going to get really high. Yesterday we were in the park area by the river and some of the park is underwater, and its still getting higher. I'm not going to be there though on the 18th when its supposed to flood all the way. I think its cool that you knew about it though. I didn't think you would, but yah that's whats going on. and osama bin laden is killed! that was crazy news, we found out yesterday morning, a member was telling us. It seriously is big news.
Well Vicksburg has been great, I met a lot of good people. The G_____, the C____, the R____ and R_____ and the C_____, and the C_____. Vicksburg was a good area and I'm bummed I was only there for 2 transfers.
Well that's it for now, I'm really excited for this Sunday so I can call home! I don't know if i can skype, I'll let you know! In Vicksburg it was for sure thing because I knew a few people who could do it. But in this new area I don't know anybody. I'll try my best to do it though. Either way I'm excited to talk to you this Sunday. Have fun back home and tell Carla I said good luck for the talent show thing. Bye!
