England Coventry Mission
I served my mission in Coventry England (1982-1984) it was combined with the Birmingham mission while I was in the field. I loved my first mission president Quinn McKay he was a man that to this day I hold much respect for as a person, he was replaced by President Smith, I can not say the same for him I never really gained much respect for him as an individual.
Since my mission while still LDS I attended a few reunions. I have kept in touch with a few companions none of which are still active or involved in anyway with the Church. Another I ran into while at the SLC airport and he was no longer LDS. I know those missionaries that are still active in the church have mission reunions to reunite with those they served with. I hope to find even more of my fellow missionaries that have left the LDS church. I was visiting one of my companions this last year and we were looking at a picture and I know first hand that 3 out of the 4 in the picture were no longer active in the Church. If you served in the Coventry/Birmingham mission and would like a place to come and share your story I would love to hear it. In fact I would love to hear stories of any missionaries that have since left the church and would like some support and to know that that they are not alone in their choice. I believe our numbers are larger than you may think.
