Week 74 – Alabama Birmingham Mission
3100 Lorna Road, Suite 107
Birmingham, AL 35216
What a week!
So we got 3 inches of snow. Thats the second time we’ve gotten snow this transfer which is really abnormal for Alabama. Because of the ice and snow Montgomery like shut down and the highways were closed and we were told to stay inside most of the day.
We got our car back Thursday which was a huge blessing.
On Friday we had another lesson with Ariela and her friend skyped in from temple square. We read Alma 32 with her and talked about faith. She is awesome! She agreed to prepare to be baptized on March 3! She came to church and stayed all 3 hours. 🙂
The senior couple the Sullivans finished their mission and headed back to Arizona this morning we love them and are gonna miss them so much. Grandma and Grandpa Sullivan!
On Saturday we had a mission conference. Our whole mission came together in Birmingham to be taught by an Apostle Elder Anderson and two members of the quorum of the 70 Elder Alba and Elder Costa. It was amazing! Some things I personally wrote down were: Its never been easy building the kingdom, work with the younger generation, we don’t have to prove who we are, Do you believe in Christ?, Put things deep in your soul so it never leaves you, only 6 pages of the Book of Mormon don’t mention God, Christ, or the Holy Ghost.
I bear you my testimony that the Book of Mormon is true and that Elder Anderson is one of Christ’s apostles here on earth.
2 O all ye that are pure in heart, lift up your heads and receive the pleasing word of God, and feast upon his love; for ye may, if your minds are firm, forever.
