Specialized Training with Louisianna Baton Rouge Mission

We had four days of specialized training in the Louisiana Baton Rouge Mission.  Elder Doctor Bean did a 40 minute presentation to the missionaries on  dehydration, ingrown toe nails, basketball, bike and car safety and managing stress. After his presentation he talked to any missionary with a concern such as knee pain, head aches, ingrown toe nails, cough, chest pain, etc.  Tuesday we were at a Stake Center near New Orleans, Wednesday--Baton Rouge, Thursday--Lafayette, and Friday Alexandria. At those Specialized Trainings Elder Bean visited with and advised 12, 20, 10, 12 missionaries respectively.
President and Sister Hansen of the Louisiana Baton Rouge Mission

There are 5 zones just like this one in the Louisiana Baton Rouge Mission
On Tuesday when we were done Elder Bean asked me to drive the 80 miles from New Orleans to Baton Rouge Mission Home, because he was so exhausted. Sister Hansen fixed a wonderful chicken  salad for dinner. Their internet was down so President and Doctor went to the mission office to use it there. Sister Hansen told me about their six children looking at a lovely family picture behind the grand piano.

There are about 200 missionaries in this mission and one of them we know! Elder Cole the son of Brent and Marilee Cole and Grandson of Mike and Joyce Cole.
What were we thinking--no single picture of Elder Cole but he is 5th from the right in this zone.

For lunch Sister Hansen fixed a green salad and ordered pizza that was delivered hot and ready. She was so kind and loved the Elders and Sisters.

The Baton Rouge Temple is a small temple adjacent to the BR stake center-- We were able to attend on Wednesday evening
