Monday morning I went with Elder Romero to Dr Phillips Hospital's cardiac unit to administer to a man there whose wife is a member that Elder Romero taught. Had a good visit with them. I advised the husband to try to get better soon so he could finish his work and prepare to enjoy retirement. He wasn't too excited about that ... he seems to see retirement as years of boring nothingness. I've found it to be the opposite.

Thursday was Elder Gallo's birthday, and he and Elder Willard came over to our place for dinner. They live in the building next to ours. Had another lesson scheduled for thursday but it got cancelled.

Elder Cook and Elder Dial served with us in the Windy Ridge Ward.
Saturday was our day of service. We went with our Windy Ridge ward to clean up and paint the Ocoee Elementary school, and had a great time. Sis Allred and Sis Jackson are spanish-speaking missionaries, and Sis Lopez is our stake Relief Society president and wife of our phenomenal ward mission leader.

We had a great turnout of missionaries and ward members, both at this school and throughout many other service locations throughout the stake. We had good comments about our bright yellow vests when we stopped for lunch.

Saturday afternoon we went down to the Palm Bay 2nd ward for a baptism service, and saw an airplane writing in the sky. The message started with 'Love God', and went on, but we drove out of range to get a picture of the rest.
