Hi Dad,

 Thanks for the e-mail. No sweat. I should be the one writing you more.
 Here's some pics.

Thanks for the update.

*Do you need anything at all?  *
 I'm doing great for now. I'm actually going to be sending you guys a few
 things. They're just books that I've collected, but very expensive books
 that are worth the shipping. I'll use my allotment money on them.
 *Where do you think your next area will be?  *
 I've heard rumors brewing. One of the missionaries in our district is good
 friends with the Assistants; sometimes he gets the inside scoop. They might
 send me to Juno or Fairbanks. But that's just rumors,
 and means nothing. I'll go wherever they send me. All that matters is whether you're working
 from 10 AM to 9 PM. If you're doing that, you're good. I've come to realize
 that none of this work deals with me. It's all the spirit. I might be a good
 salesman, but if I don't have the spirit, I'm nothing. And my converts won't
 be retained.
 *Have your buddies written to you lately?  *
Here and there. It's mainly my fault. I don't write anyone. It's a problem
I've got to fix. I'm just so busy our here.
*What do you enjoy most about your mission so far? *
I like teaching. It's the best part.

Hi Mom,
P.S. This Saturday will be the end of my 10th month.
Thanks for the update.
Things are going good out here. (See my attached Letter to the President for specific details about the work.) And other than the work there's nothing going on. I don't know what to write to you about. You'll have to send more questions if you want detailed letters.
Today I've consecrated some time to organized the wealth of pictures I have, so that I can send you this jump drive. It should only be a short time till you recieve some pictures, I think.
Thank you for everything. I can't think of anything else to write. Assist me by asking questions.
Elder Johnson

This is what Elder Lawson said this week about Elder Johnson: 

"we have a way tight district and Elder Johnson has really taken the lead as DL and gave us all callings so we can see each other for lunches and stuff....I am the "service and activities coordinator" so I just organize all the stuff we do together haha.... Elder Adams is the district chef so he gets all the food.... Elder flynn is the devil's advocate so we don't do something stupid.... Tui is the "mediator" so if someone is upset he deals with it! pretty funny! But yeah! things are good! "
