Our elders helped some people who were flooded during a rainstorm here in Orlando. They pushed 6 cars that were flooded.

Our backyard is so beautiful, the flowers and pond, the butterflies and birds just keep hanging around.

Our new Assistants (one is new), what great missionaries, they really take good care of us.

Departures: 11 Elders and 1 Sister

Arrivals: 12 Elders and 1 Sister

Well, we survived another transfer! They are pretty draining. We hate to see the missionaries leave, it's like a part of us is missing but the new ones coming in are fantastic! We can't believe it, our friend the alligator shows up for every transfer and without fail he showed up for us again this transfer. Amazing!!

Serve one another...........
"Time passes. Circumstances change. Conditions vary.
Unaltered is the divine command to succor the weak and strengthen the feeble knees. Each of us has the charge to be not a doubter, but a doer; not a leaner, but a lifter." ~President Monson

Thirty of our Spanish Elders doing service for the homeless.

We just finished our Sister's Gathering, "Scatter sunshine all along your way". We had all the sisters come to the Mission Home to socialize and eat and teach. Everyone seemed to enjoy being together. Lot's of pictures taken and time spent with one another.

Here are two new missionaries, they are waiting for their visas, so they get to wait in Orlando. We are lucky to have them. Elder Finch and Elder Anderson.

Here are some photo's of Burke (our new deaf member)! At his baptism. The hands in the air means "applause".

This week has shot by so fast. We had Zone Leaders Conference and the ASL Sister's had a baptism. It was very exciting to see someone so happy to become a member of the Church!
Burke, a deaf man. It was a very nice baptism.

This week we have two new elders coming in. They are visa waiters, we're not sure how long they will be with us until they will be able to head out for Brazil. Thursday we are having a sister's meeting, a luncheon and get together for all the Sister Missionaries in the Florida Orlando Mission (22 plus 4 Missionary Couple Sisters). Then Saturday, Elder Gonzalez is making a stop here in Orlando. We will have a small group meeting with Elder Gonzalez for a couple of hours and then he will meet with President Hall and myself for an hour at the Mission Home. Then we head to a Stake Missionary Fireside and another speaking engagement. The weather has been nice, high 90's and some thunderstorms. We just had a thunderstorm watch with 60 mile an hour winds and 1/4 inch hail until later this evening. Things are moving along and we have met so many nice people and lots of past Mission Presidents here in the Florida Orlando Mission.
