I'm glad you enjoyed the pictures i sent you. its always fun to send them. well mom thanks for the letter, I'm really sorry that my letter is short. I'm just not the greatest at writing long letters. oh i got the post card from vegas this week, it was awesome. thanks for everything ill talk to you next week, love you bye!

hey dad...this week has gone by fast and September is coming up. I've heard stuff about hurricane Irene but not much. just that its headed towards Florida. but who knows maybe it will jump into the gulf. it sounds like everything is back to normal i guess you would say back home. school is going on again and football season is going too. I'm glad that cowboys and aliens was good, i was really hoping that it was going to be awesome. well this week we went on split with the slidell zone leaders. i stayed here while Elder T went to slidell. this week I'm going to picayune tomorrow while Elder T goes to hattiesburg for DLC. the Nec's family is doing really good too. we went to there house for dinner i think twice this week i always like going over there. we didn't see gator this week. but hopefully were going to mow his lawn again soon. that's about whats going on. transfer info is next Saturday and i don't know whats going to happen, i haven't been in an area longer than 3 transfers. so well see what happens. anyway thanks for the letter and advice ill talk to you next week, love ya bye!

hey how you doing?! so you guys finally got the SD card? I'm glad you got it! i like it when you guys get to see a little bit of whats going on out here. sorry about all the gross pictures, haha! i just think that the gross pictures are fascinating if that's the right word for it i don't know. the abandoned building, yes that's a Katrina damaged building that just sits there now, about a quarter of a mile from our apartment.
so this week has rained alot again! its awesome, the rain is very good and I'm surprised at how often it rains. its cool though. we saw gator on Friday with one of the members in the ward, they got a long perfectly and it was cool seeing them get along. ill try to get a picture of him sometime. probably when i leave this area and i go around to get pictures of everyone. the people down here on the coast are really nice. the coast of Mississippi is really alot different than the rest of Mississippi, like Vicksburg for example. its funny though, there's a joke that all the normal people of Mississippi live on the coast, haha! bay st. Louis is a cool place and I'm going to be a little bummed when i leave, there are times though where I'm anxious to leave because I'm not used to it, but now that I'm really getting to like the place its pretty cool. the people are really nice down here. transfer info is on September 3rd and hopefully i get to stay again though. we'll see. anyway thanks for the letter I'll keep Mark in mind, that's very nerve racking. anyway thanks. ill talk to you next week, love ya bye.
love hank
