Hey Mom and Dad,

Thanks for your emails. I'm sorry that I worry so much. I will be giving my bike a little more love. A twig came up and got caught in my derailer and ruined my chain causing a massive bend all throughout and my hanger (?) on my frame had to be replaced also.

My bike isn't fixed all the way but it works and things are getting better. I really appreciate all you two do for me and I hope things aren't stressful for y'all.

Me and my 2 Great Companions!

Things are going well and the work is nice. The other day we heard a gunshot across the street we were on, as we were teaching a lesson; but I'm fine and so are my companions.

I've been working through "Preach My Gospel" and doing all the activity boxes and lessons in order and all the study ideas at the end of every chapter and it's GREAT!

I hope things at the house are doing well and that the weather is getting better. I'm glad to hear that your health is good and hope you guys are putting your bikes to good use in the garage too!

Things are still sane in our apartment. We just reorganized all of our furniture in the apartment and it looks a ton better. I've also been fixing some of the bikes in my spare time.

Here's a video that I hope you all enjoy!

Tell Mike, our cousin, a BIG THANKS from me for his email. I don't have enough time to write back!

Love y'all!
