Week 90 – Alabama Birmingham Mission
Man it’s been such a great week! So first off, Landon got baptized! It was amazing. He was baptized on Saturday by Elder Davis and then Sunday I was able to confirm him. His baptism went so well. We had lots of support from the branch and members. Landons less active grandfather gave the talk on baptism and did such a good job. When Elder Davis baptized him his dreads floated to the surface so Elder Davis had to keep pushing him deeper until they all went under hahaha he got it first try though so it was good. He gave his testimony at church yesterday after he was confirmed, it was awesome. The gospel really can change people.
In other news. I got a migraine last Monday.
We got in a bash in the mall and his answer to stuff was “Its like the trinity, we just aren’t meant to understand it”. We tried avoiding the bash, after he brought up some stuff at the beginning I asked if he’s read the book of Mormon and of course his answer was “I’ve read a little” and so I just laughed and said well then who are you to tell me that what I believe is wrong. The Book of Mormon is true I just wish people would read it.
We had exchanges with the Ensley Elders, Elder Ramsey and Butterfield. We had a lot of things that needed to be taken care of so we didn’t have a whole lot of time to do actual missionary work which was a bummer but it was a good exchange.
Its been getting really hot and we decided to use our bikes right in the middle of the day. Nothing says I love Jesus more than riding a bike in the hot humid Alabama sun!
And to top this week off it was mother’s day so I got to Skype home yesterday. I love my family! Happy mothers day mom you’re the best!
“And now it came to pass that all this was done in Mormon, yea, by the waters of Mormon, in the forest that was near the waters of Mormon; yea, the place of Mormon, the waters of Mormon, the forest of Mormon, how beautiful are they to the eyes of them who there came to the knowledge of their Redeemer; yea, and how blessed are they, for they shall sing to his praise forever.”
