It's fall, so temperatures are around 70 at night and just below 90 in the daytime. We see lots of acorns on the ground now, which the squirrels seem to like a lot.
There are a lot of homeless and other street people in certain areas. Some seem to be by choice and others are truly destitute or incapable of normal functions. I noticed this stash in the bushes behind a clinic while waiting for Sis Nielson to finish some medical business.

|Basic furniture setup|
Thursday we helped move furniture into a new apartment for the Hansens, a senior couple arriving to start their mission. Sisters Brown & Pike helped with the move-in. Sis Busath found some more furnishings for them besides the basics shown here.

|Elder Costa, Elder Soares, and us.|
The MLC meeting was great -- introductions of every missionary and some good informal discussions of how the work's going and things we can do to improve it. Elder Soares had great insight for these young missionary leaders to improve their work and lead the way to strengthen all of their missionaries. During the introductions, I spoke about us in portuguese, and Elder Soares responded in portuguese that his wife was from Sao Paulo, in Ala 2, near the time when I was there. Afterward got this picture of Elder Costa (from Sao Paulo) and us with Elder Soares. Elder Costa is a zone leader now up in the Leesburg Zone.

We had a great visit, and in walking out, also had a good visit with a young man walking his dog. He lives with his wife in the Lake Eola neighborhood, but they're looking to soon move further from the city center. We talked about our missions, and left him a pass-along card.
