Mansfield OH #12

Hello Family,

Sorry for the long wait of my lovely emails I grace you with. I got a lovely comment from Judy about my writing skills so that means Emma or mom are doing a good job of fixing my grammar before they post them. So thank you. I had a great birthday full of service and hard work, and I had a blast. I also got a great tan, and my neck got fried. Over all a great great day. Oh and I got to spread concrete as it came out of the cement truck. I had a blast but my pants and one of my shirts are now covered in paint I washed the cement out when it was fresh.

Anyway in this apartment it is just Elder Jones and me. This apartment does not have have a washer and dryer in it, but it is down the hall. It coasts $1.50 for each machine, so three dollars total when you are done with one color or load. It kind of sucks but it's what we have to work with.

So what was cool this week was that Elder Cook came to town and we as a mission got to be taught by him. There was also Elder Hallstrom and Elder Titera of the Seventy and they also taught us. It was very fun and I learned a lot about how to work with the ward and to work in unison. The spirt was very strong when he bore his apostolic witness and gave us a blessing. It was a great experience and I was lucky to be there.

Also something that was really cool this week so far was that we went and saw a potential that we met last month. He was kind of shocked that we remembered him and that he said to come back in a month. I felt very strongly that we needed to see him and I'm glad that I did because he he is awesome. He was very open to talking with us and asked tons of questions. One funny thing about him is he is a big fan of American Pickers and is picker himself. So he had some of those little kids cars that you peddle. He calls them his rusty treasures. I can't wait to meet with him again and hopefully he read the Book of Mormon.

I'm sorry to here that Emma is having trouble at work with some of her co-workers and that people are that way sometimes. But it sounds like you figured it out and everything is cooling down a little. Happy to hear that you will be finally moving into a house that will be yours. No more rentals! That's exciting!

Sorry again that this is happening latter in the week than usual. This week is transfers and so they have started having us email on Wednesday instead of Monday. Yep today is my prep day instead of Monday so my whole schedule has been changed. Anyway I love you and wish you a great rest of the week.

Love Elder Young

I almost forgot. Happy Anniversary Mom and Dad! 
I hope I am remembering this correctly.

Well hello family,
Sounds like you have a very good plan ready to implement for your up coming move. Don't sell my stuff I already don't have much stuff for you to sell. But then if you feel it really needs to go then sell it just not my night stand, because I made that. Sorry to hear that you have not spiced up your lives yet maybe in a few weeks when things cool down. So there is storage under the house, that's really cool. You should send a video of the house or something.

This week was ok and then the last few days were really awesome and we had some really good lessons and stuff. So what was really cool this week was a family in the ward invited some people they met to church. What was really cool was they came and said that they want to join the church. So we got so new investigators and they came to church. Then we had dinner with them at a members house. So they are also being fellowshipped by the ward. 

That's what has been happening in my life right now. Other then the fact that I am about to turn 20. Also Elder Cook is coming to talk to our mission which will be fun and exciting. Sorry that I am so expensive with me being here. Maybe you should sell all my stuff. I love you all a lot and I am thankful for all you do for me. Sorry that this email is so short but not much happened this week. The days are getting shorter and a lot cooler already in August, like a lot cooler. 

I hope everything goes well with you all this week as you prepare to move yet again. I love you and think about you all the time and hope you are safe. You are one of the rocks of my life and I am blessed to have you in my life. Jesus is the number one rock but your a close second. Be safe and remember to pray every morning and night and to read your scriptures. They will bring you happiness and joy.

Love Elder Young

Well sounds like a normal week from you guys yet again. You need to change up your lives a little and go on a hike or something fun like that. Even I have brakes from the norm and do something different. Granted I'm shopping for food and emailing and doing laundry but it's different from the rest of the week. Anyway so you have also begun the down sizing of all the accumulated things of our family. Don't get rid of any of my stuff pleasešŸ˜­ that wouldn't be cool.

Glad to hear that Emma is getting ready for school and is hopefully getting over that sickness. Being sick is no fun and I'm glad I have only been sick once on my mission. It also must be nice only having to work 20 hours this week. Hope you all are doing well with your work and stuff. You all are crazy worker bees.

So when is the big move date then if Sandy Jo is already getting the house ready to be sold? Also will all of our shed stuff fit in the new house? I'm sure you have a game plan and know what your doing I'm just inquisitive.

So all the people we meet with are doing well, we just have been having trouble meeting with them. We did meet with Joe and had a question about why the Book of Mormon was not on the earth for a long time if it was good. We however were able to answer his concern and then gave him an interesting reding assignment. We both felt prompted to read Jacob chapter 5. Which normally you don't do and just wait for them to find it them selves, but so far he says he has gotten a lot from it and likes it.

Goals we have set for our selves are to always invite others to be baptized. Thing is most of our investigators are hesitant to set dates right now. So that he made baptismal goals hard to set for this area but we have some we feel will soon. So hopefully we will see more results from that area. 

Thank you so much for the birthday gifts I did get them. I forgot to tell you though my apartment number is 301 so next time the mail people won't have to work as hard. I love the puzzle but I solved it really fast. I'm just to good. But some of the other Elders have found it hard. Loved it all though and I liked the card. So with the pictures for my frame it works by SD cards, and I am no longer allowed to use computers now that I have the iPad. So it may be easier if you send me and SD card with pictures on it. IDk but know you know a bit of the predicament we have here.

Also I got the Ipad case, isn't it great it's my birthday gift to me, I'm so happy. Anyway this week has been good and I am thankful for all you do for me. I think about you all the time pray for your safety and welfare all the time. Be careful with this move and don't hurt yourselves. Y'all best be in the same condition that I left you in. Love you so very much.

Love Elder Young
