Carol had her interview for her baptism today!!!!! I am the happiest human. absolute pure joy. Her scheduled baptismal date is for Saturday, buttttt some things have come up and now it might be next Saturday.. nonetheless, PLEASE pray pray pray! Satan works hard on people especially this close to their baptismal date. 

We had a killer Valentine's day. My sweet mama sent me flowers and then recruited some members in my ward to heart attack our car. LOVED. Our ward mission leader and his wife and little boy brought us chocolates and flowers in between running from appointment to appointment. Such a busy week. 

We met with a less active girl who is my age and ended up teaching her and her uncle. Her uncle taught us what a one inch punch was by Bruce Lee, and then I tried it out. 💪

Sister Foster and I found out we're 10th cousins. Shout out to our grandpa Nathaniel Whitmore. 

The Zone Leaders called me on Friday and said "sister Johnson you like spicy food right?" me: "ya" them: "sweet, will you eat something hot for zone Training meeting on Tuesday..."

Well folks. I ate a Habenero pepper today in front of the whole zone and almost died. Then proceeded to TRY to teach the restoration while my mouth was in flames. They used it as a visual for repentance. We can't help others and assist them in improving their lives if we ourselves are not trying to improve every day. The Atonement is real, and I am SO grateful for it. And also for chocolate milk because hot peppers. Do not worry, there was footage taken. Then I played the ukulele while sister wright sang I am a Child of God. All in all it was a great ZTM. I love my missionaries, and sister training leader and zone leaders, they are the bomb.com. Oh and our ZLs got flowers for all the sisters in the zone for valentines day district meeting. They are stellar. 

On Sunday we, again, successfully pulled off a finding activity for the youth to invite their friends to. We watched the Joseph Smith: Prophet of the Restoration movie (if you haven't seen it I suggest you do) and we had popcorn and treats and it was a smash! They invited so many friends and it was awesome!

Remember the Gospel is true!! and I love you!!!

Got My Foster Child

Happy love week!!!! 

I went down to Bismarck this week and picked up my new companion. Her name is Sister Foster and I adore her!! 
This week a less active sister came to church for the first time in 3 years and my heart soared! So happy! 
Our 8 year old investigator, Scottie, put his hamster on Sister Foster at our lesson on Friday and she nearly fell over. 
Some of my favorite missionaries got transferred to other areas and it was super sad, but they're going to work miracles where they are ❤ 
The Sanger's aunt Julie was in town and took us to dinner. I had my first Sirloin in 5 months. I almost shed a tear. Hh yeah, and tomorrow is my 5 month mark so that's pretty cool!!! Life is great, I love being a missionary, and I am so happy!!!! I LOVE YOU ALL. 

Hey just remember the wise words of our dear prophet..

"You can't direct the wind, but you can adjust the sails."

choose to be happy this week!! 

Met this gem at the mission home. Talk about instant friends! 

My greenie :)

Babies Training Babies

hellloooo my friends! 

I hope you all had fun watching the Super Bowl! No, I didn't get to watch it, but the emails I have gotten make it seem like it was a good one. 

Let's get to the goods... I'm going to be training a brand new missionary for the next 12 weeks. Prayers not required, but highly encouraged ❤ I just finished my training 6 weeks ago so I'm what they like to call "still green." I'll be fine. She'll be fine. It will all be fine :) So, on Wednesday Sister Hansen and I will drive to Bismarck and stay in the mission home. I will find out who my new companion is and bring her back to Minot with me, and leave Sister Hansen to fly home to loving arms. 
We had lunch with Cleo and Pat (our friends that we volunteer with at the food pantry) and taught them about the restoration. Cleo really loved it and you could see her wheel's turning. She asked for a copy of the Book of Mormon and said she wanted to read it. YES!! Read the book!! 

Some of our favorite members took us to our favorite hole in the wall called the Little Blue Elephant. We've had a lot of funeral dinners for Sister Hansen's departure into the world of the normal. Not mad about it. 

Romans 8:35-39!!! Look it up!!! 


Best district ever 

Lone Peak friends 

Sis Gabler is leaving me and going to Fargo... I'm a little torn up about it 

Don't let this picture fool you, it was only 10 degrees :)  

Our favorite!!
