Elder Bird Trains New Zone Leader!

(From Ron Bird)
I had the pleasure to speak on the phone with President Mark Young.  It is great to hear that Brock is doing so well and has been given a very important assignment to finish his mission.  Brock was sad to see his great companion Elder Cooper transferred, but he's excited to have his new companion Elder Ewell.  He's only been out six months but President Young has called on Brock to train him as a new zone leader as his "last hurrah!"  President Young said Brock has been an exceptional leader in the mission and that he will miss him once he goes home at the end of June.  President Young has had such a profound impact on Brock and the other missionaries. We are forever grateful to him.

President and Sister Young have a blog you can see at:
Brock showed up in some of their photos.  Here are a few!

This is at a zone leader conference on March 2, 2012.  Brock is on the back row, 10th elder from left to right.  President
Young says Brock is a frequent contributor at the training conferences.

No question, Brock loves to eat and usually one meal is one bite!  This photo
was taken at a zone conference in March.

President and Sister Young pose with the zone leaders outside the mission home in Eugene.  This is during a zone leaders'
conference on February 1, 2012.  Brock is in the middle of the back row.  What a beautiful setting.  It looks like Oregon!
