Leaving on a Jet Plane...

No e-mail today because it is a travel day for Elder Cameron Johnson BUT we did get a phone call while he was waiting in the airport this morning.  We were able to talk to him for about 29 minutes.  It was great to hear his voice.  We had him speak some French and he sounded like a pro…at least to our ears. lol  By this time tomorrow he will be assigned to his area and have a new companion to show him the ropes.  It's hard to believe that he has been gone for 6 weeks, but at the same time it feels like he has been gone forever.  Thank you for all of the prayer and support that you have all given him and us.

The Johnson Family :)

Here is a letter we received from the mission home:

Dear Missionary Parents,

Bonjour from the France Lyon Mission!  President Roney and I have been happily preparing to receive your son or daughter on Tuesday December 10, 2013.  We have been praying for them as well and for their safe arrival.  We anticipate picking them up at the airport in the morning where we have a full day planned for them!

President Roney and I have felt such a love for your missionaries and feel truly honored and privileged to serve with them in this great work of the Lord.

We will be emailing you photos of your son or daughter when they arrive.  As parents of our own missionaries, we know the comfort that this brings.  Is this the email that you would like the photo sent to?  Please list another one if it is a different email address.

Please know of our love and concern for them and we truly love them as our own and feel very humbled to have them entrusted to our care.

We would love to learn a little more about your son or daughter before they arrive.  Would you be able to send just a very short email with just a few things that would help us know your missionary better?  Likes/dislikes, hobbies, talents, favorite foods, etc or any interesting little story or item about them would be great!  

Thank you so much again!  Please feel free to email me if you ever have any questions or concerns.

Sister Roney
France Lyon Mission
