area: Lake Houston YSA Branch (Humble, Texas)
companion: Elder Ericson
Somehow we had an awesome week! Colleges are closed, so we don't really have a way to go personal contacting (and find YSA's) but we still were able to teach a lot. We now have 4 people who are preparing to be baptized and each one has a date for each of the 4 weekends in June.
June 5 is David. He was a referral from the Humble Sister Missionaries. They had been teaching him for about 5 months but he wasn't really progressing, so they handed him over to us and the YSA branch. And now he stopped smoking, came to church, and is on date to be baptized! We love miracles!
June 11 is another David. He is the friend of Jacob, a member in the YSA. David is awesome! He's been prepared throughout life experiences and having Jacob as a friend. Jacob has a mission call to go to Barcelona Spain and he'll get to baptize David about a month before he leaves.
June 19 is Chris. He's a referral from missionaries a little south of us. They found him as he was walking down the street and just stopped and talked to him. He reminds us of Michael Oher from Blindside. He's very humble and so ready and willing to come unto Christ.
June 26 is Giovanni. He's the referral of a member who recently got home from BYU. Giovanni is very open and willing to listen too. We had a lesson last night and at the end we asked if he had any more questions or comments or concerns and he said, "no, but I just want to sit and talk with you. I love being around the missionaries." Also very humble and it's awesome because he chooses to be humble, it's not forced upon him because of life circumstances.
I love being a missionary and I love this area!
I love y'all. But I love Jesus Christ more. And this is where He wants me. So this is where I want to be.
Your favorite missionary, Elder Combrink
