Biscuits and gravy is another weird breakfast food that I didn’t have before. Every house has a porch on it and everyone sits on their porch in the summer and drinks sweet tea.
Deer meat is popular during hunting season, and everyone likes to hunt. I had never seen that before, but everyone drinks sweet tea.
It was a big blessing later on because when sisters and elders work together for the same cause with their different gifts and natural talents they work together well. They love to be His hands and to really help people.

My transfer was the first giant transfer of sister missionaries. I can’t remember exactly, but we had a lot of sisters.
I asked the elders how they felt about it and at first they thought it was weird because they had already been out about 6 months before the first big group of age change missionaries. People love Jesus Christ and would do anything for the Lord.
Member wise there are six stakes, Huntsville, Madison, Tupelo, Birmingham, Bessemer, Montgomery.
In total, there’s about 30,000 members of the church in the mission, so it’s pretty strong.
Birmingham Mission Geography I served at a time where a big transition took place in the mission.
Geographically, the mission covers as far north as Fayetteville TN and then the very bottom of the mission is Greenville Alabama, which is about a 4 1/2 to 5 hour drive from top to bottom.
I really liked being in the South and experiencing that culture, because religion is such an important part of the Southern way of life.
