Dinner Guests 60 through 66

We have started feeding our Barlow interns for Sunday dinner.  We have decided to take them 6 at a time instead of 4 at a time so we can have some Sundays off.  It is fun to invited them into our home to sit around a table and to eat together.  They are so excited for a home cooked meal and there is something about breaking bread together with people that starts melting walls and barriers.  It if fun to hear a little about them and to see them in a casual environment.  I am really glad we decided to do this.  We really don't alter the menu.  We have pork roast (which is the cheapest meat around right now), potatoes, gravy, corn, carrots, grapes and pineapple or some other fruit, sometimes we have muffins, and then some kind of desert.   Today our desert was brownies with vanilla ice cream and chocolate sauce.

Church was great.  We are on the welcoming committee and the missionary committee. I was assigned to greet people at the door and hand out bulletins today.   I was so excited to see all of our Barlow interns get callings today in the ward.  We have four that our on our missionary committee.  It was so fun to see these young people excited about their new callings and ready to go to work.  One young man said I love this internship even the ward we are in.  These young people are so sharp and have so much to offer.  We have another great group to work with.

  1. That is awesome that they are assigning the interns to help the missionaries. What a great experience for them! I would have done anything for a good, home cooked American meal on my mission!
