Elder Johansen – November 2018

Colombia Bogotá North Mission Office Address Calle 72 # 10-07 Oficina 1005 Edificio Liberty Seguros Bogota, Cundinamarca Colombia

It’s amazing how much he has grown in just eight weeks in the mission field. He is seeing first-hand how the gift of tongues works. He was so worried about his Spanish, but in each email I see how well things are going. He throws in Spanish constantly. By the end of his mission, I think, I will need an interpreter just to read his emails. He says everyone feeds them and the hardest part of the whole mission is eating all the time. They found 11 investigators in just 4 days, and have set a goal for 3 baptisms this month. He loves the Latino people but says he sucks at soccer. My favorite part of his last email was “Being here in Colombia has opened my eyes to see that there is more to life than things, and that all the people of the world are equal in the eyes of God and should be in our eyes”. I think that is the best lesson anyone can ever learn.
