We drove to the Brandon Stake Center for a zone conference with three zones, Sarasota, Brandon, and Lakeland. These zone conferences are held quarterly. For the training, President Cusick spoke, I spoke about the recent Church policy changes regarding same-gender marriages, President Healey trained on safety, and several missionaries spoke on first impressions, ward councils, teaching the restoration lesson, diligence, obedience, and extending invitations. The missionaries did an excellent job of presenting.
The unfortunate part was that Sister Cusick, who normally participates, was not able to do so. Over the weekend, she fell at the mission home and broke her wrist. She will have surgery tomorrow.
Following the zone conference, we had a short appointment with the oral surgeon in Brandon to check on how Renee's implant is healing. All seems to be going well.
We then drove to Gulfport where I had a special considerations interview. We met up with another senior missionary couple, the Smith's, for dinner prior to the interview. They took us to the artsy part of Gulfport and we ate outdoors at the top of a restaurant overlooking the harbor. Following the interview, we returned to our apartment after a long, but productive, day.
