The Living Christ

Man.. the time is going so quick. 

So here’s a rundown of our week. 

We had exchanges with the Inverness elders. It was Elder Buck, Heer, and I together. We had a good exchange and worked hard. Elder Buck is super diligent and faithful. Such a great missionary. It was a lot of fun.

We had another good lesson with Hannah and Bobby. We read the first 12 verses of the Book of Mormon with them. It’s a great way to introduce the Book of Mormon and then invite them to finish the chapter.


Hey everyone so things are moving along. We’ve been working hard and trying to find and teach. 

Elder Buck and Elder Ramsey ran a 5K on Saturday in their proselyting clothes. It was funny, lots of weird looks from people. Everyone was way nice though. Elder Buck got in the top 10 overall and first for his age group.

As I’ve been reading the Book of Mormon I’ve been paying attention to the simple truths that are taught. The Book of Mormon has so many scriptures that are so simple and clear.

Zone Conference & Double Exchanges

Its been  a good week. My last zone conference was this week.. the time goes by so fast! It was so weird giving my departing testimony. We shared that video I put on here last week as part of our training lol it was great.

Afterwards we started our exchange with the Northport Elders, Elder Childs and Sobrio. It was good. Exchanges are always fun because you get to work with different missionaries.

Netflix and.. Bless?


Hey y’all, this last week has been a blur so I’ll do my best to share what has happened.
We’ve been doing all sorts of finding. Pretty much all of our time is spent finding. We’ve had such a hard time lately finding people that want to learn more about our message. It’s so frustrating because people don’t know what they’re missing out on. “I would that ye should come unto Christ, who is the Holy One of Israel, and partake of his salvation, and the power of his redemption.” Omni 1:26

Trio #3

Hey everyone. So transfers were this week. Elder Davis is now in Selma and Elder Ramsey is now with Elder Heer and I. We’ve had a pretty good week. 

So to start we’ve been doing a lot of finding. We are always trying to find people. It’s tough and hard to find people that are interested but we try. We talk to people in stores, in the park, on the streets, knock on doors, and just about anything you can think of to find people. 

The End Draweth Nigh

Man it’s crazy that another transfer has gone by. So the news is that Elder Davis is getting transferred and Elder Heer and I will be staying here. And we found out this morning that we’re going to be in another trio. Elder Ramsey is coming here from Ensley. Its funny cause we had exchanges with Ensley this last week and it was Elder Ramsey, Heer, and I together so we will be working together for the next 6 weeks.


samuel.furgeson@myldsmail.net Week 97 – Alabama Birmingham Mission Birmingham Alabama   Its HOT and its HUMID. I can’t believe its already July and I’m a week a way from starting my last transfer. Where has the time gone? We have been trying to get to know the members more and help them with their missionary work….

Back to back

This week has just been packed. Great things are happening. 

We had interviews this week and as always they were great. President Sainsbury is the man! 

So we started teaching Abby and Savannah. We met Abby a week or two ago and then Savannah is her roommate. Raksha has been coming to the lessons and they are doing great! They came to church on Sunday with Raksha. 🙂

We had back to back exchanges this week. The first was with the I

Little by little

Well another week down. The time is really going by fast. 

I think the humidity is gonna kill me. It’s been so hot! 

This week we had all but two of our appointments fall through which is super frustrating and discouraging, but we also had some good things happen.

The Find Grind

Alright so things are going well. We’ve been doing tons of finding. From tracting, store contacting, talking to people on the streets. We met a lot of new people this week. Not too many YSA but one team on dream. We met an older guy who said to call him Pops. His wife passed away in 2006 and he doesn’t have many friends. He reads the bible and goes to a church but we told him about the Book of Mormon and how it can help him as well as coming to our church and becoming a part of the church family.

Trio #2

Well I have another migraine right now so I can’t really see exactly what I’m typing so I’m gonna make this quick.

We had transfers this week and so I’m in a trio now. Elder Davis and I stayed and now Elder Heer is with us. We’ve been working hard and having a good time. Our apartment is one of the smallest in the mission so we’re pretty cramped but we’re moving to a bigger one on the 15th so we’ll make it.
