hey mom, wow it sounds like that a lot has happened back home, dad getting released and you being the new RS president. sounds like a crazy day, well I think JR is going to to a great job as the bishop. Its really hard to believe that dad has been bishop for 5 years now. it really did go by pretty fast. and also that dust storm! that's sounds crazy! i would love to see a picture of it or something. well this week was going pretty cool. i enjoyed it. we're teaching this family the Nec's and there pretty cool, they're a catholic family and they enjoy having us over a lot. yesterday they lent us their golf clubs and today we went golfing. it was a lot of fun, it was something i definitely needed. i think I'm getting better at golf, but i still suck at it, haha!
the fifes are really cool, we went over there again on Friday for breakfast and it was great. i played their son at chess and he beat me, but he's a cool guy. we talk quite a bit, on Sunday sister fife came up to me and asked if dad was the bishop. i said yah, he's actually being released today. she thought it was cool and that she would write to you about it, and i guess she did. well mom thanks for your letter, I'm sure you'll do just fine as the RS president. thanks again for everything. ill talk to you next week, love ya bye!

hey well thanks for the letter. wow that's crazy that you've been released already as the bishop. I'm sure JR is going to do a great job at it. and mom is the new relief society president? wow that's pretty cool, she'll do good at that too I'm sure. the high adventure trip sounds like it was a good one this year. My favorite high adventure trip is still and will always be Lake Powell. that was a fun trip, i think about that trip a lot and I would like to do that again someday. so this week was pretty cool, me and Elder T are still going to Pass Christian and working there. We're still trying to find more people. There's this one lady though who were working with, her name is K Nec. shes like 40's ish years old and she went to U of A. shes really cool and her husband lent us there golf clubs today. we went golfing today at the Pass Christian Isles. it was fun. on 18 holes i shot 113 and Elder T got 109 and Elder N got 89. Elder K didn't want to golf but he still tagged along. it was fun, i would really like to do that again sometime. . well not much is going on right now. were still trying to find people but things are going good. I'm glad that I'm with Tyler he's a cool guy. its hot riding around but its not too bad. people will give us water and stuff. thanks again for everything, ill talk to you again next week,love ya bye!
