Week 36 Reassignment!


I have awesome news!!! 

I was informed this last Tuesday (the great 4TH of JULY) that I will not have to go home over my foot problem but have been reassigned to the Modesto CA Mission!!! 

OH YEAH!!!!!! I CAN`T BELIEVE IT!!!! LISTEN HERE ALL YOU PEOPLE WITH IN SIGHT OF MY TYPING!!!!!  MIRACLES ARE REAL!!!!!!!!!!! I thought, along with many others that I was going to return home early. But now I am not and to plus one everything, my feet have started to improve in ways and speed that testify of God´s power! I am sooo grateful for the power of prayer and fasting.

Sorry it is so short. Love you all!!!!!!

Week 35


This is Elder Johnson, I am doing great! My feet are not much better but after a good fast Sunday yesterday, I feel more comfort about what could happen in the next few weeks concerning my feet. 

This week was kind of crazy. Let's see.............. Made Cinnamon Rolls and had the zone leaders over to eat the m with us. Had an awesome time catching up with my CTM comp. Elder Fattellah who is my new ZL!  Elder Perez (my new comp) Made Tacos and guacamole!!! IT WAS AWESOME! I got very Trunky afterwards thinking of Tucson and Mexican food!

 On Wednesday I made another medical visit for my beautiful feet. The doctor is kind of confused at why I am still in so much pain, and so later today I will be going in to get an MRI! Hopefully that will help us figure things out. 

Our comp Elder F. Perez(you say it like Eh-fee Pe-dee-s) was transferred to a new area to finish the training of a new missionary. The Sr comp. to the new missionary has come to be our new 3rd wheel. His name is Elder Pena. He is known throughout the mission as a massive Fubeca(Slacker) who does not care about rules and most people don´t know why or how he is still serving. We will work with him and get him back on track.

Love you and thank you all for your prayers and fasting, I can feel the strength coming during my struggles.

Week 34


A Happy Birthday to my wonderful Mother this coming 27th of June!!! This week has been a very long but mostly gooooooood week!

 Monday was Transfers and on Tuesday Elder Ostlund and I received a new comp. Yup, we are in a trio now, and it has been GREAT! Our new comp. is Elder F. Perez from México. He is awesome! The reason for the trio is because I have been having trouble with my feet and have not been able to work for about 5 weeks. My comp Elder Ostlund along with myself have been going crazy being at home all day and having that burning desire to get out of the house and work. So the Lord put us into a trio and for 2 days out of this last week, my 2 comps worked the area and I helped out at the mission office.

  Oh, I can´t tell you how good it felt working and doing something again!!! I have been wanting to help the mission and the church in one way or another for weeks. I Organized the supply closet, unpacked mission supplies that had just come in from Salt Lake(Including conference editions that just arrived). 

 I got permission to take a few conference editions home (one in Portuguese and one in English) and since us missionaries in Brasil didn´t get to see the priesthood session My comps and I decided to read talks from that session. I was still looking to a talk to read when my comp told me to read a talk from Elder Bednar. I read it and it comforted me. I have been struggling with doubts and fears for the past week after being told that I might be sent to a new mission. The word of Elder Bednar calmed my soul and I am ready and prepared for anything that happens. 

The shoes that my awesome family sent to me are currently being held for ransom by the Brasilian Police. Man do I love the Police of Brasil right now. My shoes are being held at a price that shocked my president. He has been doing all that he can to get the shoes for me without paying. If it comes to it the money will be paid to the greedy police.

Love you all!! Keep the faith!!! Bring someone to church, or go to church yourself (we want you and love you)!!!

 Remember "Com Sua Força Podemos Fazer Todas as Coisas!"

Love you all!!
