Johnson was scheduled to come home tomorrow night to open his call but decided to surprise the family by coming home a day early. Because President Obama was in Las Vegas, all of the exits to get on I-215 and I-15 were closed so Johnson ended up having to get a taxi and met me at In-N-Out Burger on Flamingo. We beat Mary home and when she walked through the front door she burst into tears.
At 9:45 p.m. he opened his call. Kyal’s family was on iChat; Stacy was on the telephone; the Bennions, Lytles, Ellsworths and Mechams were here. He was called to the Singapore Mission speaking Mandarin Chinese. Our joy is full.
