A new path...

Elder Johnson has had some extreme medical conditions for the past couple months with depression and anxiety.  He has had some severe attacks that have left him with seizure like symptoms with paramedics by his side.  The doctors in Arkansas have tried to control these symptoms in the field, but things are not improving.  Conference weekend was one of prayers from us, his mission president, our stake president, and the doctors, that we would all know and feel at peace with the road that Elder Johnson needed to be on right now to get him healthy.   Through prayer and listening to conference with this concern on our minds, we all felt overwhelming peace that Elder Johnson needed to return home to address these medical conditions at this time.  We're not exactly sure what road lies ahead for Preston, but we do know and have felt the Lord's hand guide him and us in this decision and He will continue to do so as Preston returns and seeks out help to become healthy again.  Yes, we do have unanswered questions, as to why, but that is not our focus and we will move forward with faith that our Heavenly Father has a plan for Preston and with His guidance he will continue with the mission Heavenly Father has for him at this point in his life.

 We had to take one more picture because the guy taking the picture at the airport, cut off the bottom of the sign!!
Once we picked him up at the airport, we went on a picnic and then I bet you can't guess the first things he did when he got home...
Elder Johnson got released that evening by President Taylor.  What a great stake president with great advice for Preston as he begins this new path.
