Hi family and friends!
First off, this week my brother Tyler Johnson aka Big T had a birthday so happy birthday T! I miss you!
Also happy birthday to Grandma Julie and Happy Fathers' day to dad this Sunday! (Don't worry I will write you both letters this week.)
We had such a great week! We found a lot of people to teach and were very busy. I was able to go on exchanges with one of the APs Elder Sawyer on Tuesday in our area and I learned so much from him! He's from Montana right next to Flathead Lake so he taught me some Montana words like heffer. He's one of my favorite people.
We are teaching this guy named Jason. He has been taught by missionaries for a while already, but we just started teaching him more frequently. If everything goes right, he's going to be baptized next month! He bore his testimony last fast Sunday at church about how we can't have friends like Laman and Lemuel so yeah, he's pretty solid. Also we are teaching the son in law of a family in our ward. Their daughter and him just moved in with them and he came to church yesterday! Last night we had a Why I Believe Fireside and we had 2 recent converts from our ward speak at it! They are sibs-- brother and sister and this week we started to teach their dad!
So all in all there are some exciting things that could happen here, which is rare so we are really happy to be able to have this much success!
I'm grateful for the quiet examples of service and diligence that I have here from the members in our wards. Most are from the strong youth. One example is a 16 year old young man who is the only one of his family of 6 who is active right now but he still comes every week on time to bless the sacrament and serve faithfully in his Priesthood calling. That guy knows what it means to "embark in the service of
A member from Kingman, Sister Westbrook came to visit us because Elder
Rockwood used to serve down there and she's sort of the missionary mom there. She grew up in St. George and her maiden name is Abby Taylor. She went to high school with moms cousin Danny Shakespeare! And her husband knows Kyle Hurst! Anyway on her way back from visiting St. George she brought us some cookies from Swig in St. George so that was pretty much the greatest thing ever. Her mom is a teacher at Snow Canyon. You're the best Sister Westbrook!
Love you guys!
