New Series!! Meet the Senior Couples of the Alabama Birmingham Mission

As of October 2013, approximately 80,300 full-time missionaries were serving round the world. This represents a significant increase from the 59,000 who were serving at the time of President Monson’s historic announcement in October 2012 and most of the attention has – appropriately – been focused on the new minimum ages for both Elders and Sisters. However, there has been no dramatic change in the number or even percentages of Senior Couples who are serving in widely diverse and important missionary roles around the world. That is not to say that they are not needed any longer. Their contributions are widely diverse, highly influential and necessary roles – and may even be needed more than ever as The Church continues to grow. In this series of our blog, we’d like to profile the Senior Couples who are also serving in various capacities within the Alabama Birmingham Mission. These profiles will not only spotlight those couples, but also describe the diversity of experiences they bring as they contribute to the work going forward. They are not unique, however; other stories of Senior Couples working around the world can be found at
