Happy Birthday and a cast

On July 11th, Elder Anderson turned 20!  Here's what he said about his birthday - 
"Well hello family!! And Friends!!

  How are you all doing?  I know that most of you would all say that you are doing great and that you are enjoying the summer.. .    This last week i had a few miss haps.  As you all know from my last e-mail that i had a problem with my foot getting hurt and i was afraid that i might have broken it but i truly didn't know if i did or didn't.  Well the verdict is out i have broken my fourth metatarsil in my right foot.  Now you say what the freak is that?   Well that bone is the bone that goes from your heel to your toes its like the main bone.  So it hurts a little bit.  Last week i had hurt it during basketball and i went and got a doctor to check it out on Tuesday night.  Well the doc didn't know or not if i broke it so he said to stay home for a couple of days and then to get it x-rayed on Friday if it continued to hurt.  Well it still hurt.  I couldn't walk on it.  And the week sucked because i had to just sit at home all day and just do nothing.  (Which was nice cause i got a few letters written)  But on Friday we got the x-ray and we were told that we would get the results of the x-ray on Monday.  So we waited.  On Sunday i was asked to give a talk to the congregation and it was super hard because i didn't have my cast nor did i want to walk up to the stand with crutches and give a talk.  So i stood there on it for 15 minutes and it hurt a little bit.  But yesterday  it was my birthday and i found out that it was broken.   The district through me a good party where we had pizza and cake. It was a fun little event for me.  Then we went home and sat because i can't walk anywhere and then waited for dinner with the simpsons.    We then got my cast and went home and had a few people sign it and then proceed to bed.  I will be getting my cast off on August 22,  it will be my other 6 week companion. :D  I hope you enjoy the pictures now that i got my early birthday present from mom and dad and Britni i was able to send them via e-mail more and you can get direct updates!! :D

   Thank you for the birthday wishes from everyone.  I appreciate them.  And i will continue to update you on the rest of the things that will be going on.  I love you all and would love to update you on any of the other questions you have."

We found out the next day that Elder Anderson will get to stay in this area that he loves and is having success in and he will be getting a car at the end of the week.  I'm sure he is happy about that!
