1st pictures from Arkansas--New Years Eve
Arkansas Little Rock's newest missionaries...
Elder Johnson and President and Sister Petersen
We were able to talk with Elder Johnson about 5:30 in the morning on New Years Eve as he was getting ready to fly out to Arkansas with a layover in Georgia first. He had been up since 2:30 and at the airport since 3:30am. He was excited to get settled and hopefully get some food and sleep at some point. It was good to talk with him again and so comforting to know his mission president was there and waiting to welcome this bunch of fine missionaries.
Elder Johnson will be trained in Little Rock by Elder Jardine. The Bishop of their ward texted me and said 'they enjoyed his testimony and we introduced him to an Arkansas New Years tradition with black eyed peas' and even better he sent a picture with his new companion.
