We've Arrived at the Florida Orlando Mission




Wednesday 25 June 2014 about 2pm we arrived at the mission office! We were weary travelers after driving the past week over 40 hours.
We were greeted by Elder and Sister Gordon, Elder and Sister Busath, and Elder and Sister Nielson who work in the office. They took us to our apartment and helped us move in.





The apartment complex in Hunters Creek has 23 buildings with about 20 apartments in each building--built around a picturesque lake aerated by the fountain shown in the picture. Next to the lake is a swimming pool and volleyball area.
There are ducks swimming in the lake and sleeping in the grass--watch your step the ducks leave droppings.
We are about 15 minutes from the mission office. The first place we went after we unloaded the car was--
 you guessed it--COSTCO.


See you later alligator
When we got back from Costco we stocked our kitchen with food etc. We have a nice three bedroom apartment furnished with donated bed, nightstands, dresser, couches, table and chairs, desk, and cabinet. We went to the Mission Presidents house for dinner. We had a delicious chicken and potato dinner and a nice visit Wow, President and Sister Berry have a nice big house to match their responsibilities. The mission home can sleep (sister Berry uses a linen service for the bedding) 12 missionaries at a time and they stay over when they are arriving or departing so they can catch rides to and from the airport.
