Well exciting news, transfers happened!!! Our trio got destroyed!!!! So Elder Powell got transferred and is going to Many Farms, Arizona! Elder McGuire is getting a new companion to reopen the other side of Blanding. Me, I am also getting a new companion Elder Roskelly, who I was in the MTC with. We have been praying to be companions ever since the MTC, I guess we just needed to have patience. This will be fun. Especially because the 3 wards I will be covering are the ones we worked the least. It will be a blast!
I can’t really remember what happened this week. It was full of driving!
Monday was p-day and then we drove to Farmington to stay at the Assistants’ house for MLC and I had a terrible fever, then Tuesday we had MLC which was very good but weird 1) because I was sick and 2) because I wasn’t’ leading it I could just sit and enjoy it. Then we drove back.
Wednesday we had zone conference in Cortez, Colorado. So we woke up early and picked up the Monticello Elders. Zone Conference was also amazing!! One of the trainings was about leaving childish things behind, on of the Elders training said “how do you show God that He can trust you?” it was powerful
Thursday we had another meeting.
Friday was weekly planning
Saturday was a mission wide cleaning day and transfers!
So this week flew by.
It was also stake Conference with Elder Frost and he is so amazing! He talked about forgiveness and sacrifice. Very powerful!
Our investigators came. The L. are doing great! L. is getting baptized on Saturday!!!!!
One of our excommunicated investigators who is working towards baptism has been out of prison for a while, but while in prison he found a talent he has our writing poems. He wrote them all in a journal and he wants to publish them with Deseret Book because they are religious poems, but he can’t type. So he gave us the journal to type up the poems for him and the journal itself tells a story. Just amazing story about repentance. The back three pages are all full of quotes.
Love Elder Johnston!!
