Well to start of the week, about 2 hours after I sent out my last email, my companion was playing basketball and sprained his ankle super bad. It seriously swelled up big enough it looked like an orange was just attached to the side of his foot. The mission nurse told him no walking for the next 3 days. The next day we went to a foot doctor and he gave him a big clunky boot and said no walking for 2 -3 weeks! So basically we can leave the house for dinner and teaching appointments, but not much else.... so this week we have done a lot of nothing and sitting at home.

Although two 20 year olds stuck in an apartment get some crazy ideas. Lesson learned: don't try to share a hammock with an exercise ball. Yes, we set up a hammock in our apartment, it's pretty nice. We also built a fort out of our couch cushions and blankets and had a movie night watching the Restoration. Then we slept in the fort, because we are still children on the inside.

Elder Nielsen had a pretty cool coloring book for grown ups and since we had nothing to do this week I went and bought one, so I have been drawing a lot this week as well.

I found out on Tuesday that one of my recent converts in Leavenworth passed away this week. Its alright though at the spry age of 88 he was still going strong, but I suppose that he was needed on the other side of the veil. You will be missed Herbert but I know that we will see you again.

The church is true! I have had a great amount of time to read the scriptures and study the Savior. I know He lives and that He loves us so much He was willing to sacrifice all. Stay strong in the faith and "be ambitious for Christ!"

We went to Five Guys and apparently they got the potatoes from Rexburd :)
