Hey family! We had a good week this week. We picked an old investigator that had read to Alma and loves the Book of Mormon. We tried to set a date but he still has some things holding him back. Hopefully he can continue to progress. We had a zone meeting this week and I talked about setting goals and planning. We went on exchanges and I went with elder garcia. He is a stud and we had fun. We got some good work done and even made some pupusas with a family.we had a movie night with the ward and it was super hectic but we got it to work and it turned out well. We watched 17 miracles but it wasn’t in English so we had to play the sound from a different speaker in Spanish from YouTube and synchronize them haha. I gave a talk in church about the sabbath day. It turned out pretty good. I found out I’m getting transferred. I’m so thankful for this area and all that i have learned here. I feel like I’ve grown from this area more than any other place. I’m sad to leave but excited to grow and change lives somewhere else. I’ll let y’all know where I end up next week. Love you guys - Elder Cammack -

Hey everybody! I had a super good Christmas. We ate with a family and roasted marshmallows it was super nice. We found a family a couple weeks ago that are recognizing a difference in their lives through listening to us. They want to be baptized so we are excited to set dates with them this week. They are one of the most solid families I’ve ever met on my mission. We also went to a quincenera of a girl in our ward aha it was sick. We have MLC this week which will be fun. I’m excited to start this new year off right with some goals and plans to become better each day. Life is never easy but what is happening around us doesn’t need to affect our happiness. Thanks so much for all the packages and emails during the holidays. I love y’all!

Hey family here is a quick update of what’s been going on. Our investigators that came to church a couple weeks ago have been hard to get back in with and contact so we are most likely gonna move on form them but we will see! Pray for them! We found a couple awesome new people this week that met with missionaries before. We had our ward Christmas party which was pretty fun. We had some less actives come that we’ve been working with and then they came to church as well so making some progress there. We are starting to do noches de hogares with families in the ward to help strengthen the unity in the ward so we will se show that goes. I gave a baptismal interview in Waller to a super prepared guy that got baptized on Sunday. This week we have our Christmas conference on Wednesday so I’m excited for that. There’s some good things happening here and in the ward with the members so we are expecting some big changes. We went bowling today for pday so I’ll send some pics from that. Love y’all and I’m excited to FaceTime on Christmas!

Hey everyone here’s a quick update of the week. I’m in the same area and I got my new como Elder Wells. I was companions with him back in June in the woodlands so it’s been fun to be together again. This is his last transfer so I’ll be killing him. We had a crazy week cause Elder Wells is struggling with some health issues so we were inside for most the week and in and out of the hospital. He is doing better so we hope to get back to work soon. It snowed here which was pretty crazy to see I never thought I’d see that here in Houston haha. Sorry this is short! Happy birthday yesterday Treyton!! Love y’all.
I was so cold ha

We had exchanges and I went with Elder Hadley again. We were able to give a girl a blessing that has been struggling with depression. She has gone through some hard stuff and so we gave her a blessing and invited her to read the Book of Mormon and pray. We haven’t been able to see her since so we are hoping to get in again this next week.
We found a new family from Cuba that we have been teaching for a couple weeks. Let me just say that Cuban accents are soooo hard to understand haha. Especially when they are older... I understand about half of what the parents say and so a member there is essential lol. They were able to come to church yesterday and they brought their grandson as well! It really pumped up the ward to see them there and it’s getting everybody excited about missionary work. We are excited to get in with them again this week and set some bap dates!
Our investigator angel that came to church a couple weeks ago wasn’t able to come to church but we did set a baptismal date with him for the . It was the coolest lesson ever. We went in to talk about the tree of life and holding on to the rod of iron but as we started reading I stopped and asked him what he understood of the story and he already had read it and understood it perfectly. He is a super awesome guy and we are gonna do all we can to help him get baptized in a couple of weeks!
Being a missionary during this Christmas season is so amazing. I love being able to testify of our savior and help people out during this time of year. Our whole zone is super pumped about it too. We found 44 new investigators this past week as a Zone and are seeing so many miracles. I’m so thankful for my Heavenly Father and for his grace and mercy to help me and everybody I work with even through all of my imperfections.
We got transfer calls and I’m going to be stayin here in Louetta and my comp will be leaving. I’m so happy to be staying here with all the stuff going on. I love this area and ward. I have seen more ups and downs here and grown more than any other area. Love y’all and and I hope you have a great week! #LightTheWorld
