September 22, 2009--Staying in Boca!

Hello! How is everyone doing???

I'm doing wonderful!! This week has been a little slow. A lot of appointments have been cancelled at the last minute, so nothing really exciting.

We do have one new investigator, Valerie. She is a friend of a recent convert. She's our strongest investigator, and is SOLID. She is amazing. We meet with her again Thursday morning, so I'll let you know how it goes next week.

We've officially dropped the Bergers. If they don't progress for a couple of visits in a row, we have to drop them, so we put them on the potential list. Sad. We really miss them!

I'm staying in Boca, but we are getting another sister. A Spanish speaking one. We are running into more and more Spanish with the ward and people we meet. I'm really nervous for the trio, but obviously the Lord knows what we need. It'll be interesting.

I've had a couple of adventures this week. I ate salmon for the first time--YUCK!! GROSS!! I can say I've tried it once and Dad would be proud and have no desire to try it again. I would never order it at a restaurant or willingly. Not a fan!

We found three lizards in the apartment. They are hard to catch! I saw the first one. I was standing in front of my desk looking at some papers on a clipboard. I turned to the second page and there he was!!!! I SCREAMED, threw the clipboard and ran across the apartment. HAHAHA. The sisters thought it was hilarious, but I think my heart stopped for a couple of seconds. I also picked up a frog last night. He sits at our door each morning and so we call him Prince Charming. I finally got the guts to pick him up, but right as I did, I squealed and dropped him. HAHA! Funny, again.

About the lipstick--they gave it to us in the MTC in the "Beauty Enhancement" class. I never wear it, but for some reason I did that day. I feel like I've changed a lot already. I look at pictures from now and from when I left. I don't look the same at all!!

Mal and Tom--HAPPY 2 YEAR ANNIVERSARY!! Sorry, I didn' tget a card written; I didn't put two and two together. Thank Busath so much for printing the picture for me and don't worry about them taking forever. I'll be here for a long time. :D

Mom--can you just add my brown belt in the package for me? I wore my jeans lasst week and REALLY needed a blet! HAHA Sometimes I feel like I've lost weight. Crazy! Also, there is this trail mix stuff that you can get from Sam's Club. It's cajun-flavored, and it's Sam's Club brand. It's DELICIOUS!! Can you send a package of that in my box if it'll fit?

Thank you so much for the sheepie t-shrts. The sisters thought they were hilarious. I really miss Char-Char. Yesterday we saw two Goldens, and it made me miss Demi, too; but no worries, one of them sent me his love with a huge glop of slobber on my black shirt! How sweet!! Then, yesterday, we also saw a Weimaraner getting trained and it made me miss Libby. Give them all BIG butt-rubs. Even Cobey and Shelby, Mal and Tom. Send my love.

Sorry, I don't have any pictures to add. Like I said--it was a pretty uneventful week.

I hope each one of you have a better week and more eventful. Ours was pretty boring, too. Must be something in the air.

Well, pray for me and being in the trio. I'm really nervous. I've always been the "third wheel," so I'll have to put forth a great effort.

I love you all and hope you have a wonderful week!!!!

Tell the entire ward I said HI, and specifically to the ones who told you to say Hi to me.

I love you all and miss you dearly.

Sister Sammi Denson
