Fire Week

Hello once again!

You would think after writing so many emails every week my memory of what happened over the week would get better but that is not the case. The week just flew by in the blink of an eye.

As I am coming close to finishing my service as a full- time missionary the thoughts have come that have been saying "I am not a good missionary" or "You have not done enough".  As the thoughts have come I first thought, those are thoughts that are coming from down below not above. Second, I have thought about the hours I have been out, The copies of The Book of Mormon I have handed out, and the lessons I have taught. Though mistakes have been made through the last two years, I feel I have done all that I can. This week will be my "fire" week :P

My favorite discussion from the week was this past Friday. We met with a less active, Patrick - older man, really nice, a lot of questions, which I like.  Our plan was just to meet with him and introduce him to Elder Sowah and teach from whatever question Patrick asked. Well, it was the one time he had no questions from us.  So I had a prompting to open one of the Jehovah Witness books ( ya... they teach him too...) and when I opened it I stopped on a page and knew this is what we had to teach. The lesson was about "Where do we go when we die, which our beliefs differ from the Jehovah Witnesses' beliefs.

The quote that I will remember for the rest of my life is this... "Preach the Gospel wherever you go and when necessary, open your mouth."  People watch how we act, what we say and our actions so make sure all of that goes a long with the gospel standards.

Love you all,

Elder Johnson
