On Friday Elder Nielson went with the Portuguese missionaries to help give a lesson to a Brazilian who was taught in English at first by the sisters who had the bike accident, and then were handed off to the Portuguese Elders. We taught the lesson in a member's home, who was very helpful in every respect. The man is hoping to be baptized next saturday.
|Wild Florida Wildlife Park|
Our Senior District went to the Wild Florida Wildlife Park and Airboat Ride Place in Kenansville, FL on Saturday. The park is owned by an LDS member who gave us a "missionary" rate. We had a great time and took 160 pictures, which won't all fit here, but here are some highlights.

We even managed to have a medical incident on the air boat ride. A tourist from England passed out for 10-15 min and had a seisure. Fortunately, there was plenty of good medical help there. Sis Nielson, Elder Busath (a policeman/ paramedic), and another couple from England (unknown to the first), who was a nurse and he was a fireman/paramedic (lower-left picture). It cut the tour a little short, but we had a much faster ride back.

|Our Airboat Group|
The best part of our Saturday was when we went up to Leesburg (at the other end of the mission) for a baptism in the Sumterville Branch. There was a great spirit there among the all the members and missionaries who attended, and it was our privilege to be there.
