Alabama Relief efforts

This past week, Andy and his fellow missionaries have been helping with relief efforts. On the weekend 2000 members from neighboring states came to help. They had Sacrament service on Mothers Day at 7am. Here they are getting ready to serve.

Hi everyone!

I just wanted to let you all know, in case you didn't already, that I am in Nicaragua for the next two weeks, studying Spanish.  I'm not sure if I'm going to have internet after tomorrow, but if I do, I will be posting on my blog and on facebook to keep everyone up to date.

A windy day in the South: 27 April 2011

Andy once served in Bessemer (as shown on this map) but is currently stationed in Hoover, about 10 miles east of Bessemer.

The lower map shows the tracks of the various tornados of 27 April 2011.

And this website has some impressive before and after pictures illustrating the destruction that occurred.

Andy was allowed to call home on Friday morning and let us know he was safe. He sounded good. They saw debris in the wind but were not threatened by the severe storms that went through last week. The power was still out in large areas. His mission president has also been very good about updating parents via the blog. Andy is in a photo from the day after.
