Members are Finders, Missionaries are Teachers!

(April 25, 2011) Hey one and all – things are great. This past week we saw a lot of miracles and we are being blessed for our hard work. We found several new people which is a miracle because when you’re in a language program, you don’t even have much of a pool to work from to start with. But this next week we will continue to see people come out that some members are working with. I have learned a lot about member work here and how important it is to work closely with them. It makes me realize how important it is that each family has somebody to work with and is constantly looking for people for the Elders to teach, because members are the full time finders and missionaries are the full time teachers. It makes it so much easier for us.

This past week our baptism went through and it was great. Her name is Vangana Halahingano and she is 14 and from a part member family. She has several siblings that we are going to teach and it will be a great way to finish my mission by baptizing the rest of this family! I’m so excited for this next week because we are having Elder Nelson come to our mission and then we will be taking a mission photo together so it will be a great memory. I’ll write more about it next week and what he spoke on. Thank you all for the love and thanks mom for the care package!!!!! I haven’t received it yet but I’m excited for it! I love you all and I know that this work is true and that the gospel of Jesus Christ will change our lives.

Love, Elder Johnson
