South Bend report

"Howdy Howdy Howdy!" -Mr. Shark (with Woody's cowboy hat), Toy Story 1

Miracles continue to abound in different ways. All our investigators who were progressing seem to have hit a spiritual roadblock simultaneously. We are sadly going to have to stop teaching our dear friend Lizzie. Her abusive husband has put the kibosh on us teaching her and so we cannot tread any further. Please keep her in your prayers. 

Also Kadesha's friend, Autumn, must have received some anti-Mormon literature because during our church tour she kept making weird faces and had to leave early. We were really bummed out that it ended the way it did for the lesson, but we have not lost hope!

We focused our efforts on finding this week and continue to find wonderful new people who have so much potential to progress. We are eager to meet with them all this week. We also have had some wonderful opportunities to strengthen relationships with lots of the members. We do service for a couple who have recently returned to activity. We help him fix several van's that he uses for his taxi service. He has been teaching us some mechanics, including how to change breaks, change spark plugs, change radiators, and this week it will be changing the engine heads. 

This couple has really dived head first back into the church and are working towards going to the temple to get their endowments out. Our gospel principles class has been temporarily cancelled due to a large attendance of recent converts and returning less actives in the temple prep class. It is a joy to sit in there with them and make comments about the greatness of the temple.

Elder Porter and I continue to work out every morning at the YMCA. We have been working out really hard and I soon shall have the pecks of David Hasselhoff :D

Well I love you all and thank you for your love and support.
Elder Young
