Last week the Busaths brought us a hibiscus plant for our new apartment, and it has bloomed nicely and has a lot of new buds. It lives outside on our deck patio. It was cold here a few days this past week, but was back into the 80's today and 60's at night again. We had a pleasant walk Saturday morning in the cooler weather on a new route that Jan found.

We helped with distribution, setup, and initial training for missionary tablet computers (or 'mobile devices', as they are affectionately called by some) this past week, with two zone training meetings on each of three days. We did the Deland zone Tuesday morning, the Leesburg zone Tuesday afternoon, the Orlando Zone Wednesday morning, the Orlando South Zone Wednesday afternoon, the Cocoa Zone Thursday morning, and the Hunter's Creek Zone Thursday afternoon.

After the setup and configuration work done by each missionary, Elders Burton and Palmer taught use of the on-line planner application, followed by Sisters Conant and Collins teaching use of the Gospel Library and other device apps, and then Elders Costa and Jeppson talking everyone thru the setup of the two e-mail systems for communication with families and for local missionary communicatons.

Sister Berry prepared and distributed water-proof bags to protect the devices from rain and high humidity. Sisters Low and Ward, and Elders Quarnberg and Patten helped answer questions during all of the instructions, along with the others when they were not conducting their own presentations.
