Then we got to go over to have a picnic lunch with Fishers.

next Darrell and MaryAnn Roskelley did a great job of speaking in Sacrament Meeting. Sistter Roskelley spoke about
and Elder Roskelley spoke about how the Book of Mormon testifies of the divinity of Jesus Christ.
The Roskelley's had invited us to come to lunch at their home. We enjoyed delicious pulled pork sandwiches, lots of salad choices and chocolate desserts.
Some of our friends who were here from out of town were Kathy Anderson and her daughter Terra. Kip Anderson was getting himself and a grandson to go to Boy Scout Camp early tomorrow morning.
Ross and Karen Taylor along with other neighbors--Scott Bloxham, Dan Black, Ken, Bonnie, and Chris Fronk, Brian and Debra Barlow.
Roskelleys had helped do George and Jacque Gorton's lunch for family and friends last week, and today the Gorton's helped do the Roskelley's lunch.
Darrell and MaryAnn said this was the first time in many years that they have had their three daughters, their husbands, and all the grandchildren together at the same time.
It was very fun to talk with Jennifer, Lori, and Alyson. Jennifer lives in Rexburg, Lorin in Seattle area, and Alyson in Jerome.
With their immediate and extended family and friends they probably had a total of over 50. Some of their extended family had long drives back, so they had served them right after Sacrament Meeting.
Bonnie Fronk taught another great Gospel Doctrine lesson (#27) on the Resurrection of the Savior and personalized it as to what the resurrection means to us individually.
Julie and John came and picked up Max while we were at Roskelley's.
We pray you have had a peaceful and restful Sabbath Day.
