Week 85 – Alabama Birmingham Mission
We’ve had a great week here in Montgomery. First off we were able to meet with Ariela again for the first time in like 3 months! We were able to talk with her about the Book of Mormon and catch up with her.
On thursday we had a multi zone conference with Elder Klebingot of the 70! It was awesome! He did not beat around the bush and gave our mission some great council. He talked a lot about the Plan of Salvation and the atonement of Jesus Christ. I have tons of notes from it. He talked about not going through the mission without the mission going through you.
We were downtown one day and talked to this guy who was roller skating downtown. the dude was 180ing down stairs and everything. Even had a WWJD tattoo. We got his phone number and will be meeting up with him this week. #skateordie
We met a lot of little kids this week while walking the streets. Lots of opportunities for street ball. Haha the kids in Alabama crack me up. We walked up to some kids and one of them asked if i played for the Boston Celtics and then we played with them and they kept calling me Boston and my comp King for the Sacramento Kings. Then they asked for autographs and pictures. I signed a kids forehead.
Also we saw 3 trucks driving the down the onramp (the wrong way) and then 5 minutes later an Asian chopping down bamboo on the side of the road. Alabama is just the best.
