Week 72 – Alabama Birmingham Mission

3100 Lorna Road, Suite 107
Birmingham, AL 35216


So this week we met a lady named Felicia. She had been homeless for a little while but now has a home and is trying to get closer to God. We had a great lesson with her where we taught her the restoration. At the end of the lesson she said, “Man I just feel so good right now. I feel like I’ve never felt before.”

During district meeting Elder Hanratty gave a training about time and how precious it is. Time just moves and moves. Gotta make those moments count.

Church this week was pretty interesting haha. So on Saturday we visited an active lady in Tuskegee and encouraged her to share her testimony. She bore her testimony for like 15 minutes on Sunday haha. There was another testimony where someone shared that their cabin in Idaho had been being used by a heroin addict and how they found hundreds on needles in it. During second hour the gospel principles teacher had a lesson on eternal families. The lesson went from turnup greens to drilling holes in a paddle so its more aerodynamic for hitting kids, to someone saying everyone’s gonna be white in heaven. During third hour the priest giving the opening prayer accidentally said the first couple lines of the sacrament prayer.

The mission is really cracking down on miles so we are trying new things to save miles.

I love and miss you all

President Monson will be missed. He was not ashamed of the Gospel of Jesus Christ and taught me many valuable lessons that I will always remember.

    Well it has been quite a week. I know that you wanted to be with your family. Cooper the best place for you was in Alabama that is where your Uncle Sam and your Mom and Heavenly Father wanted you to be. In this life we have to do hard things but as we do this it makes us 💪 strong and builds character. I have had to do hard things and I do not know if it was right or wrong. I have a lot of questions to ask on my hereafter list. Serving a mission is HARD and you are on your way down. Because I know it is hard I pray for you night and day and sometimes I 😢 and I think maybe at that very moment you need my prayers. Cooper I love ❤️ you so much. Love Grandma
