Sad news. Elder Johnson is leaving me to go to Costa Mesa. He is going to do so good there. It was great to have him as my trainer. I feel that the Lord really blessed me. So my new companion is...... Drum roll please....... I don't know yet. haha. For the next two transfers I am going to be training a new missionary straight from the MTC. It is going to be really weird to watch him go through the exact same things I went through just a little while ago. I am really excited to work with him and grow together as missionaries. The Lord knows I need all the help I can get so he made me a trainer.
This last week was awesome. I went on exchanges with Elder Keyes on Tuesday in his area and it was awesome. We were able to teach two new investigators the first lesson. I love teaching the first lesson and just trying to help them see why there needed to be a restoration. They both accepted baptismal dates and it was really cool to see people starting to accept the gospel in their lives.
Sorry for the short letter. It has been a crazy day and I don't have very much time.
I love you!
