Yesterday I met the Bishop’s daughter, she just came home from her mission, she is amazing! She got up in sacrament meeting to bear her testimony and I realized I only have a month left on my mission. She talked about how her mission was the greatest experience of her life and she wishes she could go back. I almost started crying in the middle of sacrament meeting. All day yesterday, all I could think was, I don’t want to go home. It was super bad.
Today is June 6th. I don't think you get it…. I'm saying it's June 6th as a bad thing. I'M FREAKING OUT!! I’m not ready to come home. Can I just be released and stay in Albania forever? And keep teaching the gospel?
My companion doesn’t understand because she isn’t a full time missionary. She is only going to be serving for 3 months and she is serving in her own country. I have to leave Albania, this is terrible. When I have to go back to normal life I don’t even know what that is like anymore, I am a missionary, it’s who I am now. I’m having occasional freak-outs.
One of our investigators accepted a baptismal date for next Friday!! We have been teaching Sister Cajupi’s grandmother who lives in Vlore, We are super excited for her!! She has been so ready for a long time, she just didn't think she was ready so when she finally accepted a date she scheduled her baptized soon. She went to church in Elbasan yesterday and talked to her granddaughter, Sister Cajupi and accepted a baptism date. I am so excited! I love this woman so much! It’s gonna be super great!
I love you all to Gallifrey and back.
Love, Sister Johansen
