Week 35 – Alabama Birmingham Mission
Another week in the books. This week was full of learning and growing.
She’s in her early 50’s and has a lot of health problems that prevent her from being able to come to church. She’s been investigating the church for about two years now. Some days she feels good but other days she can’t even get out of bed. She was diagnosed with diabetes a little over a week ago but it seems like she’s been doing better since the diagnosis. She has great faith in Christ.
We are teaching a girl named Taylor, shes in her early 20’s and is awesome! She’s my first investigator that keeps commitments! Only took 8 months lol. She was introduced to missionaries through her boss, Brother Foote, who’s a member of the ward here in Northport. We’ve taught her the Restoration and part of the Plan of Salvation, we’re gonna teach her the rest of the Plan of Salvation this week!
We were tracting this trailer park and we met this nice Mexican family the Philipe’s but they only speak Spanish except for the 8 year old he speaks both so we were using him as a translator cause my Spanish is pequeño. We’re gonna go back with someone who speaks Spanish but one of the boys was saying something to his mom and I listened and heard the word leche which means milk and then chocolate and then I listened a little closer and realized he was calling us chocolate milk cause I’m white and Elder Tausinga is brown, his mom thought it was funny. Dang I wish I was Spanish speaking.
We had exchanges with the Zone Leaders this week so we went up to Birmingham for the day. I was with Elder Curtis. We helped some random people move and found a really cool new investigator for them. It was a good exchange.
