1-19-15 Priorities

SOOO this week has been pack full of preaching. We just got in that proselyting mood I guess. We hit a high of 11 lessons in one day. It was awesome!
My companion is named Elder Brown. He's from Texas, he is finishing his mission soon and has been a zone leader for almost a year. My ex companion took over Branch Otoro and I still have lots of contact with him to help him out. He gets so stressed and it makes me wonder if I was like that before.

I'm really trying to work on love and humility this week. I feel like sometimes I'm thinking way more of myself than I should be and it's reflecting in my work. I need to chill out, and like focus on just loving everyone. That's what Christ did. I'm pretty sure that's how he managed to be humble. I mean he kinda did some crazy stuff like walk on water or bring back the dead. Not to mention save the human race.... Just was thinking about that because some people say "don't be prideful unless you can back it up.." And really I think that is a mistaken perspective.

We have two great families who are so excited to get baptized and I'm so happy to see them. They were so ready, God has prepared them so much. I hope we can help them gain a testimony.

This week something cool that happened is we helped activate 3 men who received the Aaronic priesthood and are super boss. Also, ran into a guy from Minnesota who travels for a month every year. He's been all over the place but even like that.... He doesn't feel satisfied. He's been all over the world, has seen so many things... but he doesn't have a family and he doesn't have the gospel in his life..... I realized through our conversation that my priorities have changed... I'm not who I used to be. And it scares me. Idk if I'm better or worse, but I know that I've changed. We'll just have to wait and see. I'll be asking God what he thinks of me right now so I can get some help to be more like him. :) 

I love you all 

Paz y amor
Elder Johnson
