Franco-Fridays: A Southern Lunch

One of the things we most enjoyed on our first visit with Emmanuel International Church was eating lunch together outside on a Sunday afternoon.  We looked forward to doing that again, but I got slightly nervous when Parker had the idea that our team should cook a southern meal for the young adults who stayed to eat after the service.  Thankfully, our advanced planning paid off, and it went swimmingly.  It was a perfect day, and these pictures make me look forward to summer in a big way.

KJ took a nice aerial photograph from the third floor, I'm guessing.

We served Poppyseed Chicken, green beans, salad, and bread, followed up with Banana Pudding.

It seems impossible to find Cool Whip outside of the United States, so we stuck with the whipped cream from a can.  I think everyone enjoyed their southern-style meal, complete with Parker's sweet tea.
It's such a unique and lovely experience to sit at the table with people from so many different nations and backgrounds, but because it's an English-speaking church, being able to communicate with them all.  It's a bit of a taste of the wedding supper of the Lamb, not that we'll all be speaking English, but the rest of it, of course.

We greatly look forward to your return, Summer.
