Addie James started her young life with no religion. Upon moving to a new neighborhood she made friends with Mormon girls who introduced her to Young Women’s Girls Camp. That was her extent of Mormonism… until the Mormon missionaries walked by their front yards.
Addie began her journey into her new religion with faith and patience. While definitely not a smooth road, as it usually isn’t for converts (or members!) Addie made the eventual decision to serve an LDS mission.
Addie was shocked and thrilled to read Samara, Russia on her mission call! As many missionaries called to Russia, visa’s are not quick to get and Addie experienced this also, spending the first part of her mission in Los Angeles…
As mentioned in the episode, the real life story from the film, The Saratov Approach took place in Addie’s mission. This is definitely a must see. Check the film out HERE.
Listen in as Addie shares with us her experiences and feelings from her life and mission. Enjoy!
