Week 23 – Alabama Birmingham Mission
Companion: Elder Prestwich
This week was good! We had a worldwide missionary broadcast in Tupelo, MS that the whole zone was at. After the broadcast some of us went to Elvis’ birthplace which was a lot of fun.
Elder Prestwich and I spent some time in the church waiting for the font to fill for the baptism of a kid in the branch.
The Conners invited us over for a western costume party dinner game thing. We were each given a character and so I was Slick O’Hare. It was really fun.
The Conner’s are some of my favorite people here. They’re always nice to us and very supportive. We were hoping they’d come to church but they weren’t able to make it, we will try for next week!
Today is my last day as a teenager..
17 For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory;
18 While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal.
-2 Cor. 4:17-18
This is a scripture that stood out to me in my studies this week and it helped me to think about myself and what matters most in my life.
