Gio"s Baptism, Dinner with the Zechiels, Conway Choir, The ultimatemember missionary

Giomar Onex Toro was baptised by Elder OHare and taught by Elder Rowley who is training OHare.
Don't these missionaries keep looking younger.

Elder Bonnemort was surprised when we sang Happy Birthday to him bearing a cake with lighted candles. We were lauhging so hard when he told us  Florida's law according to red light running. The lights in Florida are so long drivers run through when they are turning red. The law actually stats if you have passed the crosswalk before it turns red--no ticket. Words cannot describe how funny he was when he talks about waiting for a green light in Florida.

Sister Zechiel's friend made this cake for the dinner party at her house. When she and Sister Berry went to light the candles she couldn't find a match so they asked Elder Bean--Mr. Prepared--if he had a lighter. "No, but I have a mini torch." he said and he went out to the car to get it. Everyone was very impressed.
Elder and Sister Zechiel have lived in Orlando, Florida for a year and a half and are serving as full time missionaries working in the Mission Office. They hosted a dinner party for the office staff at their home. There were 10 of us: Berry's, Beans, Bonnemorts, Johnsons, and Zechiels After they retired they moved from Illinois to be near some of their Florida grandchildren. They have made some lovely improvements on their home to update the decor!

We went with Elders Rowley/OHare to give the sacrament to this faithful couple, Brother and Sister Johnson. He is in his 80's and very ill and she is the Ultimate Member Missionary. She has dedicated her home to missionary work. She invites the missionaries to teach lessons in her home, has Book of Mormons waiting to give to anyone she meets and she has an active card file of people she is fellow shipping and inviting to receive the Restored Gospel of Jesus Christ.

Sister Johnson is the Ultimate Member Missionary. Behind this curtain is a list of her contacts.
