New Friends and Barbequed Green Beans

Yesterday, we were thrilled to have the chance to meet the Langley family.  Kevin and his family are from back East and are using their vacation time to bring a trailer load of doors and windows to several small churches here in the West.  They are such a wonderful family and we really enjoyed their fellowship.  Beth is such a sweet lady
 and I loved getting to spend some time talking with her about God and His goodness. 

One of the things I love about missionaries and people coming to visit is the chance I have to feed them.  There is no better place than sitting around the table eating and laughing and fellowshipping!  Truthfully I hate to cook but I love to Crockpot.  Throw a couple of items in the crockpot and come back hours later and everything is ready to eat!  A few of the crockpot dishes I love to make when we have people pass through is meatballs, potatoes and barbequed green beans.  It is such a yummy dinner and so filling!  Everyone cringes when I say barbequed green beans, but after they try them they want the recipe!
 Try them, I bet you too will love them.
