Columbia YSA

Hey hey hey! Columbia is sweet! First of all I lied last week the YSA here is not a ward its a branch of probably like 30 or 40 people that actually come but we are gonna turn it in to a ward if we work hard enough! So me and Elder Meyer cover the whole Columbia, MD stake which goes from all the way up to the Pennsylvania border down to the Savage Mill area below us and over to the edge of Baltimore. We spend most of our time around here in Columbia, Ellicott City, and Savage Mill though. Elder Meyer is such a character we are having a such a sick time out here lurkin for all the YSAs! We are working with the members of the branch and spend time on a few college campuses and are trying to get to set up booths there, so its good stuff!

We have an awesome investigator named A that is going to be baptized on November 5th! He is so sick and just embraces everything. We went to the DC temple visitors center with him on Saturday which was super sick. Hes such a great kid and is psyched to get baptized!

Another crazy awesome thing that happened was yesterday morning we get a call and i pick up the phone and can barely understand him because of some wicked accent but he was asking to come to church and so we got a ride for him and he came! His name is Alberto and he is from Haiti, and neither of us had ever met him before. He met missionaries like a year and a half ago and called us out of the blue to come to church! It was a tru miracle yaimshayin so were gonna start teaching him this weeeeek!

Also this week me and Elder Meyer carved a pumpkin with the book of mormon on it, so tiiiight.

Columbia is sick theres not enough vdubs tho but I love it here! We are still trying to figure out this whole thing of only teaching young single adults but we're loving it!
