With a little help from social media, a southwest community came together to help out two young missionaries, after their bikes were stolen.  

"I didn't expect that to happen in this community," says Elder Caleb Potter.  

Two elders were going door to door, when their bikes were stolen from somebody's front yard, in only a matter of minutes. The young men searched for hours, finally telling somebody what had happened.  

A woman posted it to Facebook. Within 12 hours, somebody spotted the bikes and were able to return them to the missionaries.  

"I just felt relief," says Potter.  "Just taken care of."
