Thoughtful ward members are inviting us to dinner more frequently as our time here grows shorter. Steve and Linda K. had us over for a "home-grown" dinner. They have quite a garden and orchard, we enjoyed beets, green beans, tomatoes, cucumbers, and cabbage, plus a delicious cherry pie.
Friday we had a meeting in the morning with our ward mission leader Oscar who is from Puerto Rico. After the meeting he invited us and the two Elders over to his apartment for lunch that his father had prepared for us. Puerto Rican rice and pork that was so good, a good cucumber and onion salad, and for dessert he had made a cherry cheesecake! Good to visit with Oscar's parents, they are not members but very supportive of his choices.
Saturday after the service project we took the Elders out to Jack and Deb's country home for a barbecue with some of their family. Deb had made our favorite pineapple-upside-down cake, too. Such good people, wish we could get them to church. Tonight another dinner invitation, the Elders are grateful we are going and driving them, it's about 15 miles from Petersburg. So fun to be in member's homes, we feel loved and appreciated, we will miss our good West Virginian friends.
