A Quick Visit

Hi it's Leah, Elder Young's Auntie!  I am posting about our fun lunch date we had with Elder Young on Saturday!  It all started when Elder Young got transferred to Culver, IN which is in the northern part of Indiana only 2 hours away from us in Chicago!   M'Lynn came to Chicago to visit us and some of her friends for her birthday, in the meantime Elder Young's parents called his mission president and arranged and got his permission for us to meet up with him!  It happened to be General Conference weekend so we met in between sessions on Saturday.  We started the drive, and about an hour and 15 minutes into it we were off the freeway and on a road like this:
 A lot of farms, and no people!
 However we pulled into Culver and it was the cutest little town, with a fun downtown with happy friendly people bustling about.
 We arrived at the restaurant about 30 minutes early and waited in the car, the kids kept asking me, "where is he?" Pretty soon we saw two handsome elders walking from behind our car
 We jumped out of the car and ran to him, but before I tackled him I asked if it was ok if I gave him a hug, and he said YES! 

 Elder Young is doing well!  He is loving his area, and he seemed to have a great relationship with his companion. We talked about the session of conference they just listened to, what the people are like in Culver, how small his branch is and how they meet in an office building and use partitions to make classrooms. Culver is a resort town next to a big lake, and in the summer the population almost doubles, so he was excited for that. He asked M'Lynn some questions about home and some of his friends, and he had fun asking the kids questions even though they were abnormally shy!
We had to take some pictures:

What a fun day!  We love you Elder Young!
