I've already written about "How to Have a Crawfish Boil" on June 5, 2014, so this is a follow up. After hundreds of little guys gave their lives for us to enjoy, the below picture is half of them laid out on the table with ears of corn, red potatoes and onions. Then "all y'all" (that's plural for y'all) grab a platter like the white one at the top and fill 'er up. Besides a table full of CF, Mervin (since he isn't a missionary now) had also barbecued ribs and the Sisters brought salads, rolls and desserts. Quite an impressive, and filling, spread!

|Louisiana Baton Rouge Mission--Senior Couples--13 June 2015|
I'd never met the Paulsen's before, even though they've been here since January. It was good to have a few minutes with Sister P to hear about a few of their adventures. They've already served two 18 month missions--one in Sri Lanka and the other on an Indian (I know that's politically incorrect) reservation in New York. Sister P shared a few experiences that they'd had in Sri Lanka, and I'm still trying to imagine what it would be like to serve in a third world country where there's such unrest. Among other things, Sister P taught piano lessons for many hours each week, and Elder P taught English. Some of their pupils/investigators/students traveled for 3-5 hours each way to get to the Church building. Just another example of how blessed we are to be able to ride comfortably to church within a reasonable period of time.
