Quick Note From Fiji

Elder Johnson is on his way to Christmas Island.  The only flights between Tarawa and Christmas Island take him through Fiji.  There is only one flight per week, and regrettably they did not make the flight.

First off, sorry I didn't write yesterday, I had to be at the airport by nine and didn't get to Fiji until 3. By that time all the internet cafes they were all closed so I am emailing today haha. 
Investigators are solid, and I made this last week my best week in Ambo, even though we didn't have a ton of lessons! haha We had two new investigators come to church and my understanding of the language sky rocketed!

So we have a dilemma here in Fiji, our flight to fiji was a okay.... but our flight for tomorrow to Kiritimati was not confirmed and they only have one flight a week from Fiji so we could be staying for a week here..... aaand our hotel Raffles was only booked for one night.  You guys should look it up its waaay nice! hahah  So we will see what happens tonight we are on a waiting list so there is a small chance to leave tonight at midnight! haha
I love that you are  continuing with your reading that is going to help you way more than you know!! That verse that you sent me is amazing, and it helped me to know that everything will be alright no matter what, as long as I am doing what I am supposed to be doing! 
I love you mom,
Love your son,
Elder Johnson

Well I'm in Fiji baby!! ahahah you were right about me not getting time yesterday, but I do have time today!!
Flight went good but like I told mom, we might have to stay a week with no hotel.... so we will have to travel four hours to Vula and stay with the Kiribati visa waiters.... no work..... I really hope we get on tonight... hahah
Carrington left last Saturday, Elder Stone, and Elder Aru are taking over the area, I worked with Stone the last couple of days so that I could show him around the area it went pretty well. 
I love that experience that you had with your friend, it is really an answer to my prayers.  I have been praying that you would have more spiritual experiences to help you know that the Lord is always there. Anyway I love you, I don't have a lot of time, We are going to do a few things before we fly out!
I'll update you next week!
love your son,
Elder Johnson

Letter sent Tuesday night:

soooooooooooo didn't get on the flight.... which means Elder Miller and I are stuck in Fiji for one week.  But the bright side is that we get to stay with all the visa waiters from Kiribati, and we get to go to the temple baby!

Visa waiters are missionaries going to america for their missions from Kiribati. As of right now I am across the street from the temple emailing you.  President Weir told us if we didn't get on to find the Visa waiters. and the cool thing is they are all getting their temple endowments right now, and the AP's here have a few investigators that speak Kiribati, so we might go with them sometime!!

I love you all!
