Things are going really great! The MTC is going by so fast! I can't believe I leave forin exactly one week! (June 1st) I've gotten used to being tired..and to the fact that I'm gonna be tired every single day of my mission life! lol..I'm learning how to teach and I am already 10 times better than when I first started! My district is really awesome! I love it! And so is the district in my zone that leaves tomorrow..I'm gonna miss all of them! They are way cool! (and yes Mom..I am treating the sisters very well!) So this past Sunday..my companion and I became the ZL's! It's way cool! I know the responsibility will bless us in so many ways! But there is a problem with the flu going around in my zone..2 elders got sent home last week because they had the flu..and the entire MTC is on a no shaking hands/hugging rule..which is extremely hard to keep!!
Well everyone keep me in your prayers! I miss all of you!
Love Elder Johnson!

Hey everyone! Things are going pretty great here at the MTC! The first 2 days started out pretty slow..but they are really starting to pick up! My companion Elder Peterson and I are making great progress with the lessons! We got to go to the temple today and had a really fun time with that! My district is pretty fun! I love how friendly everyone here is and I am excited to get to North Carolina! I have learned so much here at the MTC and I have experienced so much as well. There have already been times where I have felt the spirit soo strongly! The only thing I don't like about the MTC is that I am tired ALL DAY LONG!! Sometimes I really have to struggle to stay awake in class..but I am still learning so much! (and don't worry..I haven't fallen asleep in class..yet.) Well..that's all I can think to write right now..I love y'all and I miss y'all!

Well..its finally here! The moment I've been waiting for my entire life! I leave tomorrow to go on my mission where I will be serving for 2 years in the Raleigh, North Carolina mission! I am very excited to go and serve the people of North Carolina and I'm looking forward to inviting them to come unto Christ.
Although a lot of y'all already know that I'm mormon, y'all might not know what exactly I believe and I really regret not letting y'all know. But I know that Jesus Christ, our savior and redeemer lives! He truly lives and He loves each and every one of us! (Mormon or not Mormon) and He wants us to be happy. So He and our heavenly father have prepared a way for us to return and live with them and our loved ones after this life and experience joy and peace for all eternity! Please...at some point in your life, invite the Mormon missionaries into your homes and ask them about this great plan of happiness! Even if it is just once! And then you make the decision for yourself whether or not you believe it, but I promise, if you choose to believe it, you will never experience a greater joy then when you do! =)
I'm going to miss y'all SOO much!!! If you want to keep in touch with me, or you have any questions about what I believe..you can write me an email at http://www.facebook.com/l/;www.dearelder.com and I am in the North Carolina, Raleigh mission! I'll be praying for y'all! =) See ya in two years!
