Week 24  – Alabama Birmingham Mission – #ABM

Starkville, Mississippi

Zone Conference

Zone conference in Tupelo

20th Birthday!

I had an awesome birthday! We were at zone conference for most of the day, but after zone conference we went to institute and Shellie and Crystal brought me cupcakes and donuts! After we headed to Denny’s. If you would’ve told me last year that I’d celebrate my birthday at Denny’s I would’ve laughed. The Sisters brought me a cake and everything! Our  waitress was super awesome and sat down and ate cake with us! She told us she’d come to church too.. she didn’t though but we have her number now..

And then on Wednesday the Picards had us over for a bday dinner. She made Ritzy chicken that was soooo good and she makes the best banana pudding!


We helped an old couple in the branch clean up their yard and burn some trash.

It was a good week here in Starkville. This transfer is flying by. Only 2 weeks left and a week and a half until my 6 month mark. Being a missionary definitely has its ups and downs but at the end of the day I’m glad that I chose to come on a mission.

20 Wherefore, ye must press forward with a steadfastnessin Christ, having a perfect brightness of hope, and a love of God and of all men. Wherefore, if ye shall press forward, feasting upon the word of Christ, and endure to the end, behold, thus saith the Father: Ye shall have eternal life.

21 And now, behold, my beloved brethren, this is the way; and there is none other way nor name given under heaven whereby man can be saved in the kingdom of God. And now, behold, this is the doctrine of Christ, and the only and true doctrine of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost, which is one God, without end. Amen.

2 Nephi 31: 20-21

Love y’all
