Elder Johnson arrived at approximately 8:30 on Wednesday, October 10, 2012, at the Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport where awaiting his arrival were family and friends.  Mom, Dad, Lauren and Brittany, Chandler Laney, Bethany (Auxier) and Annie (Auxier) and their cute little children ... were all waiting.  We clapped and cheered for him!  Mom got the first hug! The guy that took a picture of all of us said he remembered when he had his homecoming! 

Brad loves the people that he got to get to know on his mission.  After we got him home and settled, we sat down and saw just one set of his pictures.  He told us about ALL of those folks that he loves so much.  He misses you.  Thank you all in Alaska for loving him back!


  1. Thank you Elder Johnson for your service and influence. Elder Record has been greatly blessed to have had you as his trainer. He is a district leader in Fairbanks and is training his third missionary himself. The Lord's work continues. How wonderful it is. Thank you again for all you have done for the people of Alaska.

  2. I have the honor of saying I was successfully "dunked" by Elder Johnson! Btw, I survived Alaska, homelessness & breast cancer! Now I have my class A CDL & live in beautiful Florida! Thanks for sharing ur loved one with the world.
