Elder Johnson is Doing Great!

Dear Johnson Tribe
How's it?
Man it sounds like the eagles are on a roll.... And the broncos are hanging in there! I hope they can get recharged. Next weeks game will not be easy... But # 4 is pretty insane!!
As far as the work out here goes.... We are kicking some booty. We visited a ton of members and talked about mission work and as well we contacted a ton of people and are teaching like 5 father led families. So that's pretty awesome. So we're very excited. We're just hoping that the members will start to produce some fruits from the family mission plans we have distributed amongst them.
We went to PEC this week and the bishop spoke about missionary work for like 45 minutes in the which was the quotes... " if you are tracting then you are not working hard, if you are working with the members then you are working hard" as well as "this is our missionary work. They have been sent to us to help us. We should be finding, they should be teaching" and when one of the bishopric asked us if we had contacted a referall he gave us the bishop said " I hate to break it to you but that isn't mission work, You should have these people being taught in your home by the missionaries"
So he's pretty pumped about it. And we'll be teaching a family in his home this week. Unfortunately the member work isnt to a point where we don't tract but we'll see maybe in a few months it will be!
But with our hard work and the members enthusiasm this place can & will explode! I am looking forward to seeing the growth over the next few months!
What else is there to tell about?? Well i am hoping to recieve my package this week at zone conference! it would be most excellent.
As well, The biking is getting me into good shape again. IT's pretty intense!
Oh and a member of the Springs' ward took a picture of me and elder hatch in his studio the other day. He's been taking pictures of all the missionaries who come into the area for over 10 years. So hopefully i can send that to you soon! Oh and i got moms letter! it was great! i loved it! I'm glad to hear that kevin is such a stud. And that Dad is still......Dad. He's the best. OH and yes i got an email from jeff. It was awesome. He is the man. I always tell the missionaries i serve with how rad my big brother is.
But keep up the good work, Keep up the missionary work on your side!
Sounds good.
The Church is True!
