Just Taking Care of Business

Vision without work is daydreaming.  
Work without vision is drudgery. 
Vision, coupled with work will ensure your success.

Tumble outta bed and we stumble to the kitchen
Pour ourselves a cup or bowl of ambition
And yawnin', stretchin', trying to come to life
Jump in the shower and the blood starts pumpin'
Out on the streets, the traffic starts jumpin'
With folks like us on the job from 8 to ?

First stop, pick up "homework" from the Mission Home every morning.

Next stop, the Mission Office to take care of administrative needs.

Newly arrived Elder Terry and his trainer, Elder Robert, assigned to the Bumby Haitian Ward in the office for orientation.

Before hitting the road to assist in the "temporal" needs of the mission it's Polar Pop time.
Whether it's dropping off a vehicle for needed repair,

 loading up a bed or replacing a broken chair, 

shipping home a bike or even picking up one there.
It's what we do.


 It's raining and pouring, (it's Florida) but we have a friend in the Poinciana Branch who is in the hospital so neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night stays these couriers from the swift completion of their appointed rounds.

Seen on the side of the road as we cruise on by...
Sister Dane's and Sister Vaden scheduled to depart
for Kuna, Idaho and St. George, UT (home) this coming weekend
after serving their 12 month mission with honor!

 Our Senior Missionary District at a farewell dinner for the Sister's
at Long John Silver's in Sanford.

 Elder Vaughan and Elder Fuller one evening at Walgreen's.
We discovered that it was actually Elder Vaughan's birthday that day
so we offered to take them out for ice cream to celebrate. 
But it was late and they needed to get home so they opted for chips and Gatorade instead-obedient with exactness!

 Just out and about signing renewal leases in Clermont and look who we ran into? 
Elder Weston Gale from Sacramento, as well as his companion, Elder Jacobsen and the Minneola Elders, Steed and Hilton.

Winter Garden Sister's Taylor, Johnston and Salvesen. 
We set up this trio a few weeks ago and now
Sister Salvesen was to be re-assigned to the Hunter's Creek area. 
So we came to move her bed, her personal belongs and of course Sister Salvesen.



 Long story short, the Poinciana Sister missionaries need to move :(
Florida realtors are of no help, and rental properties are few and far between. 
So after doing some research online it's pull out the GPS and start looking. 
This house is actually under consideration if you can believe it.

Saturday the Poinciana Branch had a Branch Activity/Farewell Party 
for a few of our members who will be departing soon. 
Brian Rodriguez will be attending the single adult ward, the Baum and the Blan families sold their house and will be moving to Utah
and the Howse family will be moving back to Utah.
Adria and Jody Howse, from Orem, Utah, have been here in Florida for two years to establish a business and now are headed back home. Adria is our Primary President and Jody is our Young Men's President. They have 4 wonderful kids and Elder Busath is especially fond of their youngest, Emmett.
He is a busy boy and reminds us very much of one of our own grandchildren back home. We seriously do not know what the Branch is going to do without them!
Where did the week go?  I guess it's true, time flies, when you're  having fun :)
And we been takin' care of business every day
Takin' care of business every way
We've been takin' care of business, it's all fine
Takin' care of business and working overtime...
Have a great week!!!

See you later, alligator...
