"My new companion is really good, his name is Elder Vaca. He is from Bolivia but lived in Spain for 8 years. (The other day, we talked about the Basque people and the running of the bulls). I am really excited to be training because I feel like the Lord blesses new missionaries a lot. This week a lot of great things happened in our area and we found a good young married couple."
"I love you all and I hope you have a great week" Elder Johnson

|On one of our trips, it seemed to be the season for baby camels to be born.|
Babies were everywhere, even very close to the car and crossing the road.
We live in Addis Ababa and have a branch close by in Megenagna but we also visit the missionaries and the branches of the church in Bekulobet, Debre Zeit, and Hawassa. We always love to see camels as we drive. Here are photos of some we have seen lately as we have traveled.
|About 100 camels crossed in front of us on the road to Hawassa. You can see one of the herders keeping them going after they crossed with his stick and his yellow jug for water. There are huts in the background and a termite hill in front.|
|There were about 100 camels walking through the fields between Addis Ababa and Debre Zeit from the expressway to|
|This one lives on a hotel compound in Hawassa.|
He couldn't stop chewing his toenails.
|Can you see the camels peeking over?|

|Suddenly, this big silverback(Agashaya) slid backwards down a slope like a child sliding down the stairs then brushed against my knee as he passed by. He was followed by a female with her baby on her back. It was amazing, we had a great experience!|
|Beautiful Gardens where 250 thousand people are buried.|

|We had the opportunity to go to Rwanda for a few days. It is a beautiful, very|
clean country with a thousand hills. We ate dinner in this restaurant, "Heaven".
|There were fantastic views from the hilltops. This view is from Heaven.|
|The church has only been in Rwanda for|
two years. We went to Rwanda to meet
a young man that has been a member
for two years and was prepared to be
set apart and serve a mission.
|We stopped at a market and bought|
this tiny fruit. The dried packet opens
and it tastes really good, like citrus.
