A Family's Guide to the Alabama Birmingham Mission Area (or, "Where's My Missionary?")

A Family Guide to the Mission

Just got a letter after a transfer meeting?  You now know which area your favorite Elder or Sister is serving in, but when you start to search through Zone Conference photography you don’t know which area or district – or even zone for that matter – to refine your search? 

If so, here’s the answer to every Mother’s Prayer: 

Overall, there are typically five zone conferences, which actually include more than just one zone each:  Bessemer, Birmingham, Huntsville, Montgomery and Tupelo.

Attending the Bessemer Zone Conferences, you’ll find the Bessemer East and the Bessemer West zones - including the areas of Alabaster, Columbiana, Lorna, Hoover, and Inverness in the east and Tuscaloosa, Northport, Demopolis, Ensley, Jasper and Bessemer

Attending the Birmingham Zone Conferences, you will find the Birmingham Central and Birmingham Northeast zones – including the areas of Vestavia Hills, Birmingham, Cahaba Heights, Altadena, and Gardendale in Central, and  Gadsden, Anniston, Locust Fork, Talladega, Leeds, Sylacauga and the new area of Attala in the Northeast.

Attending the Huntsville Zone Conference, you will find the Huntsville North and the Huntsville Southeast, along with the Madison zones – including areas of Weatherly, Byrd Springs, Fayetteville, Sparkman,  Capshaw and Huntsville in the North;  Monte Sano, Scottsboro, Guntersville, Fort Payne and Boaz in the Southeast; and Cullman, Madison, Athens, Decatur in the Madison zone

Attending the Montgomery Zone Conference, you will find the Montgomery North and Montgomery South zones – including Tuskegee, Wetumpka, Alexander City, Millbrook, Prattville, and Clanton in the North; with Montgomery, Highland Home, Greenville, Selma, Magnolia and Camden in the South

And, attending the Tupelo Zone, you will find the Tupelo North and Tupelo South zones – including Savannah, Corinth, Booneville, New Albany, Tupelo, Amory, Haleyville, Hamilton, Russellville, Columbia, West Point and Starkville.

Of course, if you’re related to and/or interested in President and Sister Hanks – or one of the Assistants – you’ll be able to see vestiges of each of them in all Zone Conferences.

Psst- This post will be very handy on Friday, June 13 when a HUGE amount of pictures from the last transfer will go live on our blog.  Now you'll know where all of the missionaries are going!
