Apr 20 - Chincha

Hello All,

[We mentioned that we got tickets to the Stadium of Fire to see Journey this year] JOURNEY! haha it is interesting because actually a lot of people here listen to the old school rock. For example, Guns and Roses is really popular here. It is funny when we are walking and we hear a song like that. haha Its awesome!

This week has been difficult. We have people, but they are never home ugh. We have walked a LOT this week haha. Hopefully, we will be able to turn it around and be able to have more appointments and be able to help these people progress towards God.

One experience that we had was with a kid of 11 years old. We were teaching him and his mother and he talked back to her and got in a little fight during the lesson. At the end, we invited him to say the prayer and he said .. I am sorry father in heaven for fighting with my mom, please forgive me and bless her for what she does for me.. He then ended the prayer and gave his mom a hug and a kiss. It is so amazing these types of experiences with the people down here. These people truly are humble.

[We also mentioned we have a Stake Family Discovery Day this week] I hope that you guys continue to do well and have fun at the genealogy activity. I don't have the same opportunities to go to the temple as before because my area is about 3 hrs away, but we are planning a caravan over there on May 2nd. We have planned to bring 5 people to do baptisms for the dead. I love the temple and can't wait!

Love you guys soo much and a lot ,,

Elder Johnson
