Soooo many things have happened this week so I am going
to send all the pictures I have received and tell stories.

The Second Harvest Food Bank was cleaning out their storage of cakes
so we each got to choose a cake.  Hahaha I know you know I can clear a
cake no problem.......

We took our picture outside Second Harvest.  This is the place I
sorted a million apples, oranges, and carrots, plus had good conversations
with members and missionaries!!! I love it!!

We are in a drought people!!!!!! We were seriously dying of heat.  It
got over 100 a couple times this week.  We are grateful for AC and
purified water!!!!! Can't afford all this wasted water  :)

Our last possible P-Day together we hit up Applebee's (thanks to Aunt
Ashlee and her generous donation!!) we ate Asian Chicken salad which
we have discovered this transfer and it was so good!!!! Mmmmmm.
Hhhaaaa good times.

After Zone meeting we hit up the hopping hamburger place of Tracy!  I
love these Sisters a lot.  Sister Sili promised me I can come visit
her in Tonga :)

My comp driving hahahagahahaha

Mission conference in  December flashback.

We organized a moving crew (us 8 missionaries in Manteca) to help our
neighbor move.  We finished so fast they were super happy (super
happy because it was two stories with a ton weighing bed that took all
the Eders and 2 more men to move haaaa).  They gave us a lot of money
and were interested in coming to Church because of it.  We tried not
to take the money but he said Jesus told him to do it!

Sister Sili and Tu'atonga hooked us up with the Tongan members in the
Ward and we had a Tongan dinner!!! I was a little sicked out, but I
have become a liiitttllleee more sensitive to those kinds of things.
I did eat though, aaannnnndddd I can say I ate some pig brain!!!

Gross! Couldn't pass that one up but never again will I do it!
It was for Elder Stone’s birthday and so he tried it. Hermana V and I then had to do it as we were like Spanish work REPRESENT! We have probably eaten lots crazier things than that in posole!  (Dont know if that is how you spell it ha)

We had a Ward party at the park.  I got to play some soccer and
baseball!! This is Elder Griffin and he got to Manteca when I did but
he was being trained.  He is such a hard worker and doesn't get the
recognition that he should. He is an awesome Elder!!

For our “Man-Up Monday" we went and helped Exxxxo prune all of his fruit
trees that he planted in his back yard!! He ended up feeding us and talking to us a little more than we pruned buuuuut it was great!


Benito's house.  He seriously has 50 elephants in his house It is
our joke that I will ask him how many elephants he has and he will
answer "sin cuenta" which is without count, or "cincuenta" which is
like 50. Hahaha.

We were having a moment in the car before our last lesson that we were
going to teach together , before we received our transfer calls so we
decided to take a picture.  I am so grateful for this girl, and I know
I have been far far far from perfect but I have had some of the best
times of my mission with this girl, and I love her a lot!! Bebe V!!!!

We went out to Safeway to eat some prime sushi while we waited for our
transfer calls! Haha we were freaking out soooo bad.  This transfer
was to decide our eternal fate of the missionary world!! This was the
moment that we found out which mission and where!!

The missionaries of Monte Vista ward and our ward missionaries!!!

Is the suspense killing you yet?

I received a transfer call from President Jardine, that my call was to be reassigned by the first presidency to the MODESTO California mission.  I was also called to the position of Sister Training Leader.  My companion would be the Hermana Cuesta!  My area of service was to be Manteca California!!!

I am a Modesto Missionary! I will forever be a Sacramento missionary though.  That is where I was called and born and everything!  I will forever SACATTACK it.  I get to be a training leader and go on lots of exchanges so I am excited!  Haha and my companion is Hermana Cuesta again!  This time though it is her last transfer in the mission so I am killing her off!  I killed my sister and my mom in the mission!  I am so happy I get to stay a fourth transfer in Manteca!  I love the ward, and I love where I am and I love the people I know so I am really happy.  Plus I get to spend Fourth of July here!

My baby is going to East Sacramento and will be a Sacramento missionary so I will basically never see her again!!! waaaaahhhhhhhh.   Who did that?  But she is excited to be companions with Hermana Kaaa from Hawaii and Hermana McCloud who also just got done being trained.  They are going to rock it and have a fun transfer together so I am not even worried.  I am sad though.  

Here we are at week ONE and week TWELVE:

I am excited for these happenings and I know that exciting things are happening in the future and I love being a missionary so much!
