Week 84 – Alabama Birmingham Mission
Alright so here’s some things from my week!
I finished the Book of Mormon again this week! The message of remember always sticks out to me. Constantly the prophets tell the people to remember. If we don’t remember our spiritual experiences we are so quick to forget them.
On Saturday between sessions of General Conference we went back to try a guy named Mike who told us to come by on Saturday. We talked to some people outside his house and their first reaction was “Mike.. who’s Mike? I dont know any Mike’s.” after about 2 minutes of talking with them one of them walked away and then came back and was on the phone with Mike. Lol we get mistaken for cops all the time.
General Conference was great! I felt the spirit so strongly during many parts. God is a God of order, this is his church. President Russell M Nelson is his prophet. Here’s some things from my notes:
• Repentance isn’t a backup plan, it is THE plan.
• President Nelson has touched a lot of hearts lolz
• Have a forgiving heart.
• You are a child of God.
• Satan temps and tries to tear down our knowledge of our relationship with God. “Moses son of man”
• Be wise in your use of technology.
• We have his authority to bless people but we don’t use it enough!
• An elder holds as much priesthood as an apostle
• Clear communication with the holy ghost comes through repentance and obedience.
• Love is sign of a true discipline
• Give more than you receive
• Recall the feelings that accompany the spirit. It’s light and has a quiet assurance
• We have to be continually moving forward not just sometimes.
• Come and see
• Christ is Alpha and omega. With us in the beginning and with us to the end.
• Love one another as I have loved you. By this shall all men know that you are my disciples
• We invite all to come unto Christ and be perfected in him.
• We aren’t just a Sunday church.
• The church is a vehicle for the people to get back to God. (Ephesians 4 “for the perfecting of the saints..”)
• When you feel lost or forgotten, Behold the man
• Go to the temple! Go! Go! Go!
• 7 new temples!!
• This may not impact you but it’ll impact those around the world.
Hope y’all had a good Easter 🙂
