Washington Tacoma Mission; May 2012 - June 2013
Washington Federal Way Mission; July 2013 - May 2014

I want to share my testimony with you. I know God lives, he loves and cares about me and is very watchful of me. He is my Father in Heaven, I am his Son. Heavenly Father sent his Son, Jesus Christ to come to this earth, to show us the way to return to live with our Father in Heaven. Christ suffered in the Garden of Gethsemane for my sins, my bad days, and my hard aches willingly. He then died on the cross. He rose three days. He is my Savior, my Redeemer. I would have no hope without Jesus Christ. He is my Light and Life. I am so grateful for my Mother and Father here on earth. They have truly sacrificed so much for me to be here on a mission. Thank You. I know Joseph Smith saw God the Father and his Son, Jesus Christ in the grove. Joseph restored the true and living church back to this earth, and because of that, i can take the sacrament each week, and be cleansed from sin. I love the temple so much, there is truly a spirit of power there. God is over this work. I am so grateful for this opportunity to serve a mission. May God bless you until we meet again. I say that in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.

  1. I am so glad that you were able to get this going..I must admit your mother was having a difficult time with it.

  2. Hey Family,

    as most of you know im in Aberdeen, Washington. i cover aberdeen lake quinalt and ocean shores. i live in cosmosplois right of the 101. im doing really great. i have been a little under the weather with a runny nose and cough, and now an ear infection but i still keep working. we go tracting almost everynight between 5-7 i have knocked on probably more than 200 doors. placed 8 book of mormons and found 3 new invetigators. the really exciting news this week is we have a baptism on the 7th. he is a nine year old little boy but it still is really amazing. We have dinners at a memebers house everynight expect on mondays which is p-day. it has rained on me during tracting about 70% of the time and thers a saying in the mission it kinda goes like this, "everytime it rains during tracting your wife gets alittle hotter!" so yes sometimes we pray for rain. we got to go to the Seattle Temple last wednesday that was really neat. i get to drive everywhere we go cuz my companion totalled a mission car and got his blue card taken away so im pretty excited about that. our apartment is the upstairs of a house, its really big. a nice way we unwind after a long day is a good old nerf war. were getting reallly good. im still trying to get fimilar with the schedule and that but i am glad im out here. my goal during the first 12 weeks is to read the old testament and doctine and covents. i love the ward we go to. i have learned so much the past month. i hope everything is going smooth and flowing fine. aberdeen is an intersting place. like saturday we tracted this apartment i have video i will send out at the end of the transfer which is July 4th. and pictures to mom and she will responible to post it on facebook and get it out to everybody else. but the door was probably 6 feet high so i had to bend to get close to it. another aprtment was saying they have to take out the light bulbs eachnight so they dont get stolen. they said it was a miracle if they didnt get broken into each night. but i do love aberdeen. i have meet some interesting people and taught alot. i will keep you poisted i will try to send one of these each week after i write to you personal so i love you guys i miss you tons and pray each night for all of you. God bless or Que Dios Le Bendiga. you are great this Elder Johnson OUT!!

  3. Hey Family.
