Hilliard Ohio #10

Hey Family,

So this week was a good one and the weather was really nice and wasn't to hot. Good to hear that you are all safe where ever you are. This week was nice also because we had our car and it allowed us to do a lot more as well as a way to get out of the heat. We have been trying to meet with people through the week but have had little luck with the new people that we talk to. We however are able to meet with Jeffrey and a member referral Ben. Kind of a slow week but was nice was the lessons we did have were with members. Also that Ben came to church that was a really big thing for us.

So this week has been full of a lot of service to the ward members and Just Serve opportunities. It was a lot of fun to get dirty pulling tons of weeds and lifting heavy things as well as assembling shelves. It's nice to be able to help in some kind of way when ever we can and those opportunities have become more frequent. So Elder Kimball and I are very happy.

Now to the lesson we had this week. Starting with Ben Hoop who was referred to us by President Smith of our mission Presidency. He is also the stake president that worked with the committees to get a temple here in Ohio. Very nice man but is intimidating because of all his achievements. He is also a professor at Ohio State over the department of Agriculture. Anyway we had a lesson at his house and taught Ben who is a very nice and open to learning and said that he would be baptized. Sad thing is we learned at church that he live in the other Ward boundaries and we will have to refer him over to the sisters in our district.

Also had two lessons with Jeffrey one with Brother Robinson and one with Brother Hsu (sue). Both were really good lesson and Jeffrey is making very slow progress but for him I guess it's very fast. He is over coming some big things in his life that have held him down for several years so all though it's slow he is moving in the right direction. Jeffrey connected with Brother Hsu the most which is good because Jeffrey needs a friend. Brother Robinson was very helpful though in helping Jeffrey open up a little more with us. As well as after the lesson we got to know Jeffrey's son a little better. We played a street version of Pickle Ball and it was a lot of fun and Brother Robinson was really good.  

That was our week really and it was fun to do some different things. It is also always fun and rewarding to serve others in anyway we can. Hope you all have a great week and that you stay safe. Keep me in the loop so that I'm not completely lost on events. Keep up all the good work that I know your doing.


Elder Young
