Dear Family and Friends:
Well, these last weeks have been crazy. My companero was changed last Monday and I'm with an elder called Elder Mamani, he's from Peru. We are getting along well. He and I go home the same day, so we will be expecting other companeros in the coming week. I am working hard to find the people that God has prepared, I know they are there, but they are hidden really well. I hope that in the next weeks we can find them.
It's looking like my favorite fruit "tuna" (cactus fruit) will get ripe a week or two before I head home. It's going to be weird being on the official count-down here in a week. It will be my last transfer in the mission. It's too bad I don't have more, however, I am looking forward to the other very important things that come after.
We are teaching a wonderful lady named Evelia, she has the desire to be baptized in the coming weeks.
I love you all so much.
Elder Iver Johnson
