I got a quick note from Elder Maddox today. He had strep throat, a double ear infection, with a fever of 102 and lost 15 pounds last week. But he said that the missionaries are well cared for there and he is doing much better this week. So that was why we didn't hear from him last week. His new companion is Elder Parker from Lehi, Utah! He said he reminds him a lot of Travis. Elder Maddox is also very excited for his cousin Caleb to enter the MTC next week.
