Elder Young has now been in the mission field for over a month. It is amazing to see the time just fly by. He has already informed us as to when he will be returning from his mission, which is December 23, 2013. He has been able to find a few families to teach, however it is difficult and many people are just not interested in the message that he and his companion have to offer.
Service projects and a fishing trip are the latest things that Elder Young has told us about. On his last preparation day, he and his companion, along with another companionship, helped a member with a construction. After the service project, they all went fishing. They were confronted by the game warden, who wondered if the Elder’s had fishing licenses. Even though the questioned Elder told the truth, that he indeed did not have a license, the warden let him off and no fine was imposed. Telling the truth paid off for this young man.
Elder Young’s companion has been invited to do the Haka at a local junior high school this week. It will be interesting to see how that turns out.
Keep Elder Young and his companion in your prayers, along with all of the other missionaries in the world.
