Pooped on by a parrot but the work is going GREAT!

Well i had a great week!!!!! i had a wonderful birthday!!! see ya teenage years!!  i got 3 packages!!! and letters of celebration! Elder Hollembeak baught me lunch cake! We were able to meet with steve, which was a blessing. At first he tried to get us to leave but his heart was softened and we were able to talk to him and have a great lesson and he asked a whole bunch of questions that hes always had. i went on exchanges with the zone leaders this week. I went with Elder Blakely. Hes sooo awesome, love that Elder so much. We were up in Buena Vista. We were able ti find a family of 4 that was interested in learning!!! and they set up a time for us to come back!! blessings! We went and taught a less active family and they had a perit. It came on my shoulder and sat there the whole lesson hahah, and at the end he pooped on me but it was funny.
    President Salisbury is officially our new president! The Pitts are home now, they will be missed a lot but im excited for the new kids on the block. 
 We met with Rebecca and Salvidor this week! they are doing so great! shes really excited to be baptized and is progressing really well. We talked to Salvidor about baptism and asked him if he wants to be baptized on the same day as her. he said he really loves the church and the bishop and doctrine and everything, hes just waiting to get an answer from prayer if its what he should do. 
    Lee is slowly progressing, hes still nervous about being baptized but we're still working with him. We have been working really hard this week and we saw miracles. being a missionary is the best decision ive made in my life. Being able to see people come closer to Christ and help them feel the Spirit is such a joy. im so grateful for all the people that have prepared me to be who i am and gave me the experiences ive had. Even down to my sunbeam days haha. 
 Well it was such an amazing week and so much has happened. i wish i had time to talk about everything!!! i write in my journal so ill just read that to yall when i get home! 
 I love my companions. Elder Wagstaff is hilarious!! hes always cracking a joke and hes so blunt!! haha hes great. Elder Hollembeak is super funny aswell. Hes very smart and has a good understanding of the gospel. The work here in Lexington is going REALLY well. Thanks for all the prayers and support! And thanks for all the Birthday wishes!!!
   Love Elder Johnson
