OK, I confess, I filched this picture off Sister Frodsham's weekly email, but I thought it was cool that she called it "...the first official pic of me and Burton..." They were both surprised to be put back together again, but Dad's humble opinion (ok, I don't have HUMBLE opinions, what can I say) is that they work really well together, their personalities are similar, and they can relate to and work with anyone. The Lord knows what He's doing when He inspires the Mission President with companionships, and these two (AKA The Dynamic Duo) will set Jamaica on its ear. Wait and see if they don't!
And this is the revised district. Well, maybe "revised" is a little harsh. It's the current makeup of the district. That sound better?

Well, it sure looks like the more things change the more they are the same. At transfers last week, the mission needed three sister missionaries to replace those going home (Sister Thomas, of course, was one of them) and they only got one new sister missionary. So they closed down one sister area temporarily and Heather's new comp is.... (drum roll, please...) THE FROD! Yep. Burton and Frodsham are back together again in Jamaica.

The highlight (lowlight?) of Heather's letter this week was the battle with the giant cockroach! Heather said that they went out into the kitchen and there was this huge cockroach, about as long as her middle finger and as thick as her two thumbs. Four sister missionaries were running around screaming (I wonder what the neighbors thought? ("Crazy Mormons...???") Heather said it "attacked her." Yep. I can see the movie... "Attack of the Giant Cockroach.... in theaters now!" Finally Sister Thomas offed it with a broom. I sure wish I had been there to see that. Heather's final comment? "We deep cleaned and Raid-ed like crazy." Yeah. Well, good luck, Sis. Now there's only 9,999,999,999,999,999,999,999....999 of 'em left.
