We are certainly going to miss Elder and Sister Dalley, and Elder and Sister Burnham. What wonderful, dedicated, faithful couples they are! They have served this Mission in wonderful ways, and will be loved by all of us forever. Thank you!

After the Storm

First glimpse of some of the destruction from the Tornado last night in Pensacola. We also have some pretty severe damage in the Dothan, Alabama area. We are working with Stake Presidents in these areas to determine how our Missionaries can be most helpful. Our Missionaries are all just fine, and of course eager to get out and help clean up!

Severe Storm Update

We have had another Tornado touch down in Pensacola, and another one traveling through the Mission right now. Our entire Mission area is under Tornado warning. All of our Missionaries are inside their apartments, and safe. We will continue to check in on them throughout the night, and will post with any new updates. We Pray for those who have already suffered as a result of the Tornado that touched down an hour ago. We know that we will have many opportunities to serve our friends and neighbors in the coming days.

Harper Lee, Author of ‘To Kill a Mockingbird,’ Dies at 89

Her death was confirmed by Mary Jackson, the city clerk in Monroeville, Ala., where Ms. Lee lived. Ms. Jackson could not say where or when Ms. Lee died. The instant success of “To Kill a Mockingbird,” which was published in 1960 and won the Pulitzer Prize for fiction the next year, turned Ms. Lee into a literary celebrity, a role she found oppressive and never learned to accept. The enormous success of the film version of the novel, released in 1962 with Gregory Peck in the starring role of Atticus Finch, a small-town Southern lawyer who defends a black man falsely accused.
