We drove to Arcadia to meet with the Sarasota Zone South District meeting. This district includes the missionaries in Port Charlotte, Sebring, and Lake Placid. The zone used to have three districts because of the distances between the missionaries. When President Cusick decided to remove the missionaries from the Venice Ward, I suggested restructuring the district and consolidating into two. He agreed that having two districts would be preferable. The challenge is the distance between the missionaries in the eastern and southern part of the zone. So I suggested that the district meetings be held in Arcadia even though no missionaries are assigned to the Arcadia Branch. The advantage is Arcadia is roughly midway between Port Charlotte and Sebring/Lake Placid. So everyone has to drive about an hour to get to the meeting.
The District Leader, Elder Menlove, did a good job of leading the discussion about teaching the restoration lesson. He has only been out for 3 months and is already a district leader and is also a trainer.
We drove back to our apartment to wait for the arrival of my brother and his wife, Kim and Annette. They are going to visit for a couple of days. They arrived in time for us to go to dinner at Bonefish Grill, probably our favorite fish restaurant.
