May 1, 2017 - The life of a missionary

Hello all!
This week was super exciting! Let me just tell you about it! So first of all we had a lesson in a member's house, and it was one of the most stressful lessons I think I have ever had on my mission. Let's just say our member was super excited and our investigator was super overwhelmed. But it was ok, the spirit still managed to be

We also have been receiving so many referrals! From Salt Lake, members, people who want us off the porch while tracting, you name it! It's been fantastic! We also got to meet one of the ladies from Bush, she is in Anchorage for some surgery so we met with her and got to have lunch. It is so nice to put a face with a voice, let me tell ya!
She also said that I needed to come visit them out in the Bush after my mission, so that's going to be a thing!!!!

I got to go to Soldotna for exchanges! For those of you who don't know Alaska, well, Soldotna is known for its majestic views, fishing, and the Kenia River. People pay big bucks to fish there. And tourist season is starting up soon. So I finally got to visit and see if the rumors were true, and trust me they are! It's is so pretty there!

Sis. Randall and I had a great exchange! She is the cutest! We street contacted and tracted and went to the chili cook off for their Ward for dinner. It was a fundraiser for the scouts so they also had an auction. There were some nice things auctioned off! Like halibut fishing trips and salmon fishing trips and a boat, and nice tents,
and expensive gear! It was great! They also auctioned lots of desserts. The auctioneer had us stand up and said that if any member didn't want their desserts, for the sake of scouts they should buy it then give it to the missionaries. It was funny! Too bad they didn't do the same thing with the trips or gear! Lol jk!

Also while in Soldotna we tried to visit this former investigator, she lives on this road that is like a million miles long and she lives at the very end of it! We literally drove for 30 min on this road to this trailer. When we got there the door was open so we awkwardly knocked and called out to see of anyone was there. Behind the trailer there was a scream from a person.....They were hiding behind the trees so we couldn't see who or what it was, but we were kinda scared. So we knocked again and as we are knocking the scream came again but closer.
Through the trees I could see the form of a person wearing tan pajamas. Then a lady came to the door and said that the person we were looking for wasn't home. Then the scream came again but this time this kid Comes running out of the trees completely naked. The lady who came to the door was his mom. Seeing she was busy we tried to make an awkward exit. As we were walking to the car this child chases us down, waving his arms and screaming "take me with you"...... he was then caught by his mother and banished to the inside of the trailer. It was as eventful exchanges get!

Anyways I hope you all have had a great week!!! love you!
Sis. Johnson
