I Am Staying in Chico This is It!!

So I have been on pins and needles this entire week. Transfer week always does that to me. It makes my nerves completely shot. Fun right?

Well we got the transfer calls, sister Memmott is leaving and is going to Redding! I am staying and I am getting Sister Andersen. She is kind of new, she has only been out four and a half months, and I will be her third companion. I've met her once, and she seemed super cool. I'm pretty excited, she's a really happy and bubbly person like me. I think we will get along fine.

I am going to miss sister Memmott dearly. I adore her. She truly is the cutest 23 year old on the planet earth.

This past week was kind of slow, transfer week is either the best week of the transfer or mediocre. We did make contact with a bunch of less actives this week. One is coming to church next Sunday, woot woot!
None of our investigators could meet this week, which was kind of a bummer. Remember that investigator I told you about last week who called us on Sunday and said she wanted to be baptized asap? Yeah gang members kicked her out of her house and held her at gun point, so she moved to Sacramento. Good ol' Chico.

What else happened this week... oh yeah we mopped one of our less actives kitchen floor. Her name is Brenda and she goes to dialysis three times a week, and she is so tired all the time because of it. We asked her if we could do anything for her and she jokingly said "you can mop my floor" and sister Memmott and I jumped right up and found her broom and mop and did it for her. The whole time Brenda was amazed, she said she had never seen anyone so excited to mop a floor.
She called us angels. I couldn't help but laugh. It was pretty funny.

We had a couple of lessons with Breanna, our recent convert. She's doing well! She is super solid and has an amazing testimony of the gospel. She wants to serve a mission, and she will be one heck of an awesome missionary.

There's this member in our ward, brother Albert, who has this firewood business. He splits logs for a living. He has us come over something and help him split the wood. I love it, it's so much fun. Watching a log splitter completely annihilate a stump brings me a lot of joy.

Our ward had their trunk or treat Saturday night and it was sooo much fun. We had a chili cook off, and the missionaries were the judges.
I've never been in such pure bliss. I was Minnie Mouse and sister Memmott was Dorothy. It was raining, so we did the trunk or treat inside and we decorated our room with plastic bats and cobwebs. I called our room "missionaries on a low budget."

Hey guess what. I only have 12 weeks of my mission left. *loud screeching*

I can't believe I've made it this far to be honest with y'all. But I did. Here I go. This is my final run.

Sister Ginn is gonna go out with a bang.

I love you all so very much. You're all invited to my homecoming, I wanna get that out of the way right now. If you can make it. Thank you for all the support and love you give me. It is truly appreciated.



Sister Ginn
