Feeding the Elders, again!

Another round of Zone Leader Training prompted another round of feeding the missionaries. A well fed missionary is a happy missionary. Tuesday night we and the Pettingills´ met in our apartment to peel and cut potatoes and carrots for stew. When the other Senior Missionaries returned from serving dinner to the Elders we all brought our crock pots and after cutting the meat and cellery we filled 5 pots with the makings of stew and prepared to cook them all night. On Wednesday Dad and I along with Sister Naylor went to the presidents house to serve the stew in very large bread bowls (these were big full loaves of bread) to the Elders. They loved the meal. Sister Dresen made a wonderful fruit salad and the meal seemed to please everyone. This was one time when some could not finish off the whole meal. That is one for the record books.
