This week has been great here in Bayfield. It has gone by super fast but so much has happened it feels like it lasted forever.
The most exciting news and miracle is we found an incredibly elect investigator named I. We found him on Monday and taught him Monday Tuesday Wednesday and Thursday. He is reading the Book of Mormon and has a really strong desire to follow God. He is 16 and is good friends with some of the priests in the ward. His parents were out of town so we will be meeting them tomorrow when we have our lesson with him. He honestly is the most prepared person I have ever taught on my mission. It is pretty exciting. We found him just by knocking doors. It was Monday night and our plans got all conjumbled so we just decided to knock and he was the first door we knocked on. It has been fun.
I. really is so extremely prepared.He prays every morning and night, he has been to different churches trying to find the one that will teach him the word of God without opinions. He studies the Bible, he read the Book of Mormon and believes it to be true!! It reminds me of teaching Carmen. We found out later that he almost left with his family on the trip but decided to stay! God is so good to us.
We also taught a lot of other people. Some lessons good and some lessons bad! But it all worked out. There is a lot of work here to do and lots of people to find. But everything is spread out!! Too much driving! Especially after Blanding, but I love it here I really do.
We have a booth in the 4th of July parade tomorrow, which should be really good. Hopefully lots of people show up!
I love this work. Time is just going too fast!
Love, Elder Johnston
