Week 77 – Alabama Birmingham Mission

We tracted for two hours and got door after door closed on us but the last door we knocked on was a good one! We met a lady named Dawn and taught her about the Book of Mormon and the restoration on her doorstep. She told us we could come back and share more with her and her husband. We went back a couple days later and had a great lesson with them. Its always the last door!
We went out to Tuskegee and met with Sister Bentley again. We had a great lesson with her as well. She wants to be baptized but she’s not officially married so we’re gonna have to wait on that for now.
We got to help set up for zone conference so we had to be at our church building at 7AM to disable the alarm and then couldn’t leave until everyone else left. We were there from 7-5:30. And had hours and hours of technology training for when we get our smartphones in a month.
We gave this less active guy and his wife a blessing on their porch cause they said inside their house was too messy to go inside. During the blessing a dog barked behind me and I thought I was about to get eaten. I didn’t though.
Brother Foote from Northport came and visited and took us to see Taylor. She’s going to school here to be a RNA. It was a fun little visit. It brought back a lot of good memories.
Yesterday we went downtown to do some contacting and saw a group of people dressed in jean attire. We watched from a distance and thought they were making a music video. We went over and started talking to them. Turns out they’re the Baja Angels “Baja like you know what Taco Bell is?” is how they described it. We got 2 new potential investigators from their group lol Elder Anderson told us to work with people 16-25 he would be so proud.
ALSO Keith and Toccara got baptized on Saturday!! Elder Robertson and I found them tracting about 6 months ago. The day we tracted into them Keith had prayed to learn more about God. I love them, they’re a miracle! 🙂
17 Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them which cause divisions and offences contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; and avoid them.
18 For they that are such serve not our Lord Jesus Christ, but their own belly; and by good words and fair speeches deceive the hearts of the simple.
19 For your obedience is come abroad unto all men. I am glad therefore on your behalf: but yet I would have you wise unto that which is good, and simple concerning evil.
20 And the God of peace shall bruise Satan under your feet shortly. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you. Amen.
