Meeting Elder and Sister Platt in Hammond, Louisiana
On Friday afternoon we left Alexandria, LA and drove for four hours to Hammond, LA to meet Elder and Sister Platt for dinner. The Platt's are serving in the Mississippi Jackson Mission as an office couple. Not long ago their mission president was talking to Doctor Bean about a missionary and he said, "I think there is someone here in our office that knows you." Sure enough it was Elder and Sister Platt whom we have known for many years. Their son Nathan grew up in the same neighborhood with our children. It was a great place for families. We got to talk to the Platt's at that time and since we were going to Louisiana we planned to meet. We had some good Mexican food at La Carreta, then went to Cold Stone for ice cream. We had a four hour visit--so fun to catch up.
