Making Eternal Friends

What fun to attend a ward with a whole congregation! I know 80-90 doesn't seem like much, but to us it's huge! And it was such a good meeting. Sister Arntz just happened to be one of the speakers. We always love hearing from our missionaries. They have powerful and sincere testimonies. Sister Arntz is from Richmond, Kentucky and says it southern and very much like Louisiana, except there are hills and no Cajuns!

Unfortunately, the time came all too soon to return to Baton Rouge and leave our missionaries. Elder and Sister Hastings serve in Oakdale with Elder Rush and Elder Barker, who happens to be a friend of Elder Smith's from Idaho. He asked the Hastings to get a picture with Elder Smith so here it is:)

Sadly, the last pic of Elder Mecham and Elder Smith is blurry, but by the time I realized it, it was too late.
One more pic of the 8 of us. The Bible's had to get back to Leesville for church, so they didn't make the photo shoot.
Not too long after arriving home, after 3 1/2 hours in the car, our 2 Baton Rouge Spanish sisters asked if they could stop by one their way home. What a treat! They'd had kind of a long day with all of their appointments cancelling. I think they must've needed a door to open and a few hugs. Always glad to have sisters to hug! We haven't had much time with Sister Palmer since she's only been in Baton Rouge for 4 weeks. She's from Mesa AZ and 4th of 5 children. She's been out just a few weeks longer than we have, so we'll all (except Sister Bailey) be returning home in June.
