Monday's Motivational comes from the great baseball player, Jackie Robinson. Born in our little ole Cairo, Georgia. There is a plaque on the property of his birth place, along with the chimney from the house he was born in. Jack Roosevelt "Jackie" Robinson was an American Major League Baseball second baseman who became the first African American to play in the major leagues in the modern era. Robinson broke the baseball color line when the Brooklyn Dodgers started him at first base on April 15, 1947. The Dodgers, by playing Robinson, heralded the end of racial segregation that had relegated black players to the Negro leagues since the 1880s. Robinson was inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1962.
Church in beautiful Cairo, Georgia today. Love the surrounding area of this Branch building, the people, and our Missionaries who serve there. We also stopped on our way back to Tallahassee at the birthplace of Jackie Robinson. There is such great history in this area. Love it!

We attended our last Stake Conference this past weekend in Dothan, Alabama. It was so much fun to see the Members and Missionaries. Special treat - the Missionaries sang the Mission song during Conference. And we had to get a picture of Elder Kopischke, visiting Authority, with some of our Missionaries.
