Sammi's friend from Kindergarten, Sister Kelsey Anderson, will be serving in the Taiwan mission. Kelsey entered the MTC on July 8 and will be there until approximately September 22. They were THRILLED they found each other and were able to snap this picture. Aren't they beautiful??
Flying into Ft. Lauderdale on August 11, 2009. Sammi says she can't believe how much water there is everywhere! Silly girl...she is a coastal place at sea level!!
Upon their arrival in Ft. Lauderdale, they were taken to their hotel. There were four beds in there! Incredibly crowded with all their luggage!!
Sammi and Sister Pirotta's bedroom. You can see Sammi's bed on the far left and the white board keeping track of all their investigators, newly baptized members, etc.
And then there's their kitchen!! She said it's about a quarter the size of our kitchen!! It's really interesting if more than one of them in there at a time.
The other side of the tiny kitchen.
Their living room. (Dad said he's impressed how nice their couches are!! Better than his in Georgia!)
