broken bike

got a surprise email on Thursday, March 21st

the past two days the back tire on the bike has been rubbing on the frame... last night I took off the back tire to see what the problem was... I found the thing that goes through the gears and holds the bike in place is broken... I have no idea how it broke because we don't do anything crazy! I couldn't sleep last night because I was nervous to tell y'all and I'm worried about how much it will cost to get a new piece and just have me put it back together or have to have someone do it... I'm really sorry this happened but I honestly don't know how it could have broken and bent the way it is... the part on the paper is the thing that goes inside of the other thing that broke and its bent, as you can see, but its why the tire rubs cause whenever I peddle the tire rubs on the side of the frame.. it has the quick release on it? I'm sorry I don't know the names of the parts..

Hi ya pal,
You shouldn't ride on it could do more damage, and you could get hurt, dad is checking with a bike shop called the HUB, its 4 miles away from your apartment, to see about getting the part....I keep in touch,
Are you still on?

heres the other pics I was talking about... we have two appointments tonight and I have to ride on it even tho I know it's not the best... but please email me back... I will get back on after our dinner tonight and check to see what you said,,, I'm sorry and this is really bad time of day too... I hope I don't upset you too much and y'all still have a good day.... love you guys talk to you soon....

Maybe members can give you rides to your appointments, the ward mission leader maybe able to help you....
Looks like the rear axle is broken....?

So Jace did call the next day, I happened to be at work with Ross, laying pipe, I was in the trench and I saw Ross answer his phone and say "well hello Elder Weaver how are you?" I started to cry...they talked for a few minutes and then Ross motioned to me to come up and talk to him, we talked for a few minutes and he sounded like he has a cold coming on, he said he has a sore throat, probably because the temperature has changed about 25 degrees in a week....anyways he says he loves the work and is super busy, they had three appointments between 2 oclock their time and dinner and they were eating dinner with a member family, he told me about going on splits with Elder Edmunds last week and going to a man who told them he was gay and that Jace bore his testimony that man should be with good to hear his voice and his accent, holy cow, y'alls and yes ma'ams, so fun to get a surprise call! Love you Jacer and so glad we were able to help...ended up only $25 fix :)
