Ok.. Wow this week has been pretty average but today has been really intense.
Curt Clausson was able to find me. We spent the good part of
this afternoon together. Ironically enough, I was able to use the white shirts
that he bought me right off the bat because I spilled ice cream on my shirt
He is a great man though. Really sincere and down to earth.
He has a lot of wisdom that I want to break into but we barely had any time to
talk. But I did.. Talk to Cameron for a bit. I wanted to see how he was and if
he was going to be ok, how he was reacting to everything, what exactly happened,
how the mission was, and everything in between. We talked for about an hour.
Then Curt brought us upstairs and talked to us for a bit. Make sure and let him
know that I really would be interested in sitting and talking to him more. I
really do admire him.
Our investigators are doing ok. We are going to
have to postpone the baptism from this saturday because the guy went to stake
conference but it was full so he just turned around and left. I was a little
mad, but it's all good.
So, transfers are a week from today, but som
really exciting news is that Elder Johnson, my first son, is GOING TO GET A KID!
I will be a grandpa. That was cool. I get to leave with my grandson the first
day, or at least meet him his first day here. I'll probably give him a tie or
something.. At least a grandpa like hug.
So that's been the big news from
this week. I am getting a tad.. a bit.. a tidge.. But only a tidge.... trunky. I
don't want it to happen yet, but I figure transfers will break me out of it.
They usually do.
My comp and I had an intense photo shoot today. It only
lasted about an hour, but we were put into eagle's mouths, imitating statues,
and thrown into all kinds of situations. It was fun. I'll send the results later
when I have the time.
I feel good though momma. Don't worry. I'm not
depressed. Far from it. I feel great. As far as the mission goes, as far as the
health goes.. Well I'm a little hoarse. Ok a lot hoarse. Like I've had an
ongoing cold for a while, but now I feel good and I just don't have much of a
voice. But I'm ok. I sound like a giant though, my voice is really
We get to talk in a couple weeks, huh? That's coming up fast.
Super fast. I'll let you know as soon as I can where I'll be and how we'll
skype. It'll be the last time in the mission! Crazy.
I love you two. I
don't remember if there was anything that I missed, hope not, but that's crazy
about the tornadoes.
I'll be home for Christmas... Oh and one more thing.
I don't know when you were planning to go to Europe, but have it be after the
24th of October if possible. There is something that I want to do with cameron,
Be safe, be good, Love you,
Till next week, not a second
