Another week gone bye!!!

wow its already this time again!

So this week was good! We had a lot of really good lessons. We also got 2 new investigators! Our focus here isnt really finding a bunch of new people. well ok in this point in time it isnt. right now we work really hard to get our less active families to go to church. im gonna be a reall good home teacher when i get home =p i also know a bunch of really good slap in the face scriptures if anyone feels like they need to be humbled a little bit ;) haha dont worry they are slaps in the face for me too =p they are really motivating. we use a lot of them to teach because they are really blunt and they get the point across. christ didnt sugar coat anything when he taught so why should we? we do everything out of love though. i cant even describe how much these families mean to me. i just want them all to go to church and be happy and have eternal families. i get so sad when we have to drop people because they arent progressing... we had to do that a lot this week. we dropped a lot of people and contacted new people. it was a good week. we also started working with people who we had dropped 6 weeks ago. a lot of them could feel a big difference in their lives when we didnt go to their house. they are really motivated to make the changes that they need to in their lives!

I know that this church is true and that it really does have the power to change lives completely. ive seen it in a couple of people here. i know that only with this gospel we can be truly happy for eternity. the possessions we have in this life really dont matter. our families matter. and only through this gospel we can have eternal families. life is not easy. the enemy we have is very strong and he knows us really well. i know that god knows us better though. when we learn to rely on him our lives become better. way better. we can avoid so much pain and missery by reading scriptures, praying, and going to church. god wants us to be happy and when we make the effort to be closer to him that definitely happens.

i want to invite everyone to watch conference this weekend. i am so excited to listen to the only real living proffet of god on this earth. he recieves revelation specificaly for us. he knows what we need and he knows what god needs us to here. it is so important we listen to him becuase when we do we can have so much more peace and joy in our lives!!! He is here for us. and i promise you all that if you listen to conference this weekend you will find answers to your prayers.

i love you all a ton! have a good week =)

Elder Johnson!
