Well Wallace has continued to be an amazing place and we have seen a couple of little miracles this week that have truly been inspiring to me! One day while we were out tracting..we got to the end of a street..but for some reason we decided to tract down 2 houses on the next street..so we knocked on the first door..no one answered..but then we knocked on the second door..and this lady comes out and seems really excited to see us! It turns out that her name was Kelly and she was a less active that hasn't been to church in years, but still has a testimony of it's truthfulness! But what was more exciting was her conversion story! She told us that every time she thought about changing a religion..a pair of Mormon missionaries would knock on her door! She would go like 5 years without even thinking about religion..and then the very day she does..a pair of Mormon missionaries knock on her door..so eventually she got baptised..but unfortunately, she fell away. But the morning that we knocked on her door..she had gotten an email from her dad, asking her why she was Mormon..and she said that really made her think and to ponder..but then...we knocked on her door!!
There have been so many little miracles like that that have just truly strengthened my testimony of how this is the Lord's work..all we have to do is work hard and be obedient and we truly will see how the Lord will perform miracles!
So Ruby got baptized!! It was so exciting!! Ruby is the sweetest lady in the world and she is so happy and excited for the opportunity to continue to progress in the church and in the gospel and to learn more about our Savior!
We got our new mission president this week..and I got to meet him on Thursday! His name is President Cotterall from Draper, Utah and he is pretty amazing! I had the chance to talk with him one on one for about 15 minutes and really get to know him and I am way excited for having him as my mission president for the rest of my mission, although President Wallis was amazing too!
So transfers were yesterday and I'm excited that I get to have at least another 6 weeks here in Wallace with Elder Condie! There is still so much work to be done and some pretty amazing investigators that are making my mission so much fun! We've got an investigator named Buddy Avent who is taking us golfing today..if it'll stop raining haha..so that'll be fun! I'm kinda sad that I haven't seen anymore snakes..just deer and foxes..and TONS of rabbits! Oh well..I've got 6 more weeks to try and catch one! haha..
Well I love y'all and miss y'all!
Love Elder Johnson
Our ENTIRE apartment complex! haha..
