Here's how President Joseph Lindsay and his wife, Stacy, and 32 full-time missionaries weathered Hurricane Irma as it passed through Florida on Sunday.

As a busy stake president, it’s not unusual for Joseph Lindsay to spend most of his day on a typical Sunday inside a Mormon meetinghouse.

But yesterday was a Sabbath day like no other for the leader of the Fort Myers Florida Stake.

President Lindsay and his wife, Stacy, spent Sunday hunkered down inside the Bonita Springs Ward building as Hurricane Irma raged and howled outside. The Lindsays weren’t alone. Thirty-two full-time missionaries serving in the Fort Myers area joined them for the weekend.
