06 July 2015 "A Trio!"


Time sure is passing quickly! I dont know how but it is flying by! 

I was transfered to Santos! The area is called Jabaquara and I will be in a trio with the Assistants. I think it is a temporary thing. I will probably train someone who is going to get here late. But I am excited for the opportunity.

Though, this week I had a great experience on Sunday. We were asked by the CTR class to talk about getting letters/drawings from home. So, Elder Lucas and I went to talk to them. After some stories and laughs, each child agreed to write a letter or draw something for a missionary this month. Well, during Testimony meeting I had about a dozen of these kids give Elder Lucas and I drawings. That really touched me. The outpouring of love that these kids showed was incredible. I really felt the Savior's love for me and what the Lord means when He says that we need to become as little children. I felt like I needed to talk about that and how I have felt that during my mission. So, I went up there a man and as I spoke I turned in to a crybaby. Afterwards one of the members who I really respect came up to me and said that he has only admired a select few missionaries but that I was one of them and that I had achieved a love for the people that few missionaries have. He said that my heart was green, yellow and blue. 

I love this country.

I will certainly keep Grandma in my prayers. She is the best. Well, for a package... I think I will need some time to think about what I need. Nothing comes to mind right now. Next week I will let you know. Thanks mom :D
Yeah, we made that!

I love you tons. Thank you for being a great example for me. I will be sure to help you out a ton when I get back. I think that is something that I dont wanna be when I come back is a burden and someone that causes more work for you. That wont be me! I think that is why I will be a little anxious to get out west. 

Love ya mom! Have a great week!

Elder Johnson
