July 25, 2016 - Transfers

Alright everyone!
This week was awesome!

First of all we witnessed a small but awesome miracle just this morning. Our lock on our door is broken and our key is too, so we can't really turn it to lock or unlock it. This morning when we were trying to leave it wouldn't budge! Like at all! The key wouldn't turn. And we
were running late! So Sis. Jackson said a quick prayer that it would turn so we could leave. After a few more tries with no luck she looked at me and then turned it, and it turned so smoothly I didn't even know she had locked it! Usually she has to wrestle with it to lock it! But it turned so smoothly! It was awesome! The Lord answers prayers! Even little ones such as a broken lock!

So this week we have been doing lots of service! I chopped wood for the first time in my life with an ax! And can I just tell you how satisfying it is?!?! Such a great stress reliever! And I got pretty good at it too! I chopped logs and stuff in half in like one..... Or 2..... Or 20 chops! But it's super fun!

We have 2 new investigators this week!  One of them is so prepared it is truly amazing how awesome she is! We helped her family move in at the beginning of the transfer and she invited us over for lunch and asked if we could talk about churches with her. We were like, ok, cool that's awesome (we were planning to anyways lol). So during lunch before we
were even done eating, she eagerly was like, ok tell me everything! So we started with the restoration and she wanted to make sure she understood everything we were talking about. She asked so many questions and committed to read the Book of Mormon and pray about it. It was crazy! By the end we looked at the time and it had been like 3ish hours, shortest but longest lesson ever! She invited us back every week!

And finally, we got our transfer calls! Sis. Jackson is training a new missionary up here in Fairbanks, and I will be pink washing Wasilla in the memory lake Ward with Sis. McGraw (Sis. Jackson's trainer, I'm killing her off muwahaha (it's her last transfer)) Pink washing is a
lot like white washing, except we are taking over  the elder's Ward. They had to open 3 new areas for sister, cuz 8 new sisters are coming out this transfer! That is the most sisters we have ever gotten in probably all of the Alaska mission history! It's crazy! But ya, those are the highlights of my week! I love you all, and hope you are all doing well!

Love you!
Sis. Johnson :)
