Hey everyone! I made it to my first P day!!!!

It's been one week and one day and honestly I am glad that I waited a full week in order to send this email because I probably wouldn't have very good things to say about the MTC... But now I love it ... I feel the spirit everyday so much and I am learning more than I ever thought was possible!! :)

Refer to my subject... I named it Disneyland because here at the MTC there are lines everywhere and everyone PRETENDS to be happy!

I have so many things I want to say but I don't know where to start and end... so if u have any questions shoot me an email I can email almost all day.

We do a lot of classroom time in order to teach... I have learned so much including a lot of things that have blown my mind... but then when I am teaching investigators it's hard for me to portray what comes to my mind... I am far from a perfect teacher but I have seen the spirit help me in all of our lessons! Our first lesson we taught Patty Bergins... she is an atheist but she's looking for God because her son died a while ago and she can't imagine not seeing him again... while we were teaching her, we had a lesson all planned out but when we got there we didn't even refer to the lesson... my companion (more info to come about him) shared a super emotional story about his friends dying while he was investigating the church. Then we both testified she would be able to see her son again through Gods plan and the Atonement of Jesus Christ... At the end of the lesson I felt like we should sing a song.... even though my companion and I are terrible singers!!! We sang "Families can be together forever" and she told us that she wanted to learn more about how that can happen... then we challenged her to read the Book Of Mormon.

The spirit works in amazing ways! And I love having it as my constant companion!

My companion has been a blessing so far while I have been here. I have been praying for a long time for my first companion to be obedient... and he really is... but he is a goof ball.... he's from South Carolina and doesn't know a ton about the gospel... but he really knows how to bring the spirit with his humble testimony!!!

I love all of you and I want to hear from you... also I'm having competition between Elder Lasenby and I to see who can get the most packages... he gets one everyday... so let's step it up!! I'm totally kidding! But if you want here is my address thing!

Elder Isaac Ted Johnson

PS I can receive and look at emails anytime but I can't reply Love you lots
