Conversion Story of Algot and Ammy Johnson

Contributor: scuddsl Created: 1 year ago Updated: 1 year ago

Historical Background: In spring of 1918 the world was in commotion. In March 1918, the Germans had launched an offensive trying to seize control of the western front in Europe. Also the first cases of the Spanish Influenza began to be recorded, which over the next two years claimed the lives of millions of people. As told by Algot Johnson I was brought up in a home where honesty and religion stood very high. Our family belonged to the Lutheran Church, the state church of Sweden. I had a strong belief in God and was ready to defend my religion whenever occasion arose, although not always with success because I knew very little about God and his teachings. Some of the teachings of the Lutheran Church were hard for me to agree with such as their belief that little children who died without baptism were going to hell. We had some very good friends, Nils and Selma Jonsson. We didn’t see each other very often, but when we did, we seemed to feel a close bond with them. One Sunday, in the spring of 1918, we decided to visit them and we were heartily welcomed. We were seated on their veranda when Nils made an observation, “It will be wonderful when there will be peace on the earth.” I responded by saying “That time will never come.” Nils countered by saying, “Yes it will, we will have a thousand years of peace.” This was something I had heard nothing about. “I will show you something,” he said, and then he went into the house and came back with a book in his handing. He held it so I could read the title Mormons Bok. (The Book of Mormon). As I read the name of the book, a strange thing happened to me! I felt as though a sword had gone through my body. If affected me to the point that I could not talk or anything for a few minutes. I had never seen nor heard that name before. Nils then began to tell me he had joined the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I had heard of that church and been warned that it was evil. I thought Nils had been led astray, and out of my love and friendship for him, I was determined to correct him, but fast. We got into a good but friendly discussion. I could feel that he had the upper hand which I accounted to my lack of knowledge of the Bible. I determined to study the Bible so I could put him straight before it was too late. Coming home, I found my Bible and began to study so I could find strong arguments to prove the falseness of the Book of Mormon. Nils and Selma invited us to visit them again, and so we did. We began our discussion in a friendly manner, and I attempted to show Nils proof from the Bible that his religion was wrong. I began to list my objections, and he offered explanations as to the way he saw it. I could see that he was right, although, at the time, I was not willing to admit it. Our discussions caused me to wonder if it was possible to prove that the Lutheran Church was right. I started asking some of my friends and relatives, but I didn’t dare ask my Father and Mother. To my great surprise, I found none of those I spoke with could give me the proof that was acceptable to my way of thinking or was in harmony with the Bible. To my greater amazement, I found that Mormonism, as it was called, seemed to be a perfect harmony with the Bible. As I studied both books, I came across the answer to a question that I had had about the welfare of those who died before they had a chance to learn of God. I read in Matthew 19:14 “But Jesus said, suffer the little children, and forbid them not, to come unto me: for of such is the Kingdom of Heaven.” The Lutheran Church believed that if a man did not say Lord, Lord in this life, regardless of how little chance he had had to learn about God, he was going to hell, never to return. The Mormon belief in salvation for the dead appealed to me. This became the turning point in my study. Up until this time, I had been reading the Bible with the intent to find something wrong with Mormonism, but from that point on, I began studying the Book of Mormon to find out what good it contained. One day my friend, Nils, asked me if I would go with him to a meeting. A conference was going to be held in Malmö. I agreed to go, and then I realized that I had committed myself, once I gave my word, I would never break it. The time came for the conference, and I went along. I was very impressed by the missionaries. I watched their actions and character, and I found them worthy of their name, missionaries of Jesus Christ. As I listened to them speak, a wonderful spirit filled the room. I felt like we were he listeners on the day of Pentecost. I did not have to ask them what I needed to do; they had explained it very clearly to me in their message. When the meeting was over, I found a quiet corner where no one could see me, and I poured out my soul in prayer to my Heavenly Father. I asked Him what I should do. I got the feeling that there was only one way to go. I prayed for forgiveness for the wrongs I had committed and pleaded for protection from my errors. I went to the missionary who spoke about baptism and asked him if I could be baptized a member of the Church. I did not know how they would baptize me, nor was I aware that I might need special clothing. I only knew that I wanted to be baptized. My friend, Nils Jonsson, must have known I might have a change of heart. He happened to bring along a set of white clothes for me to use to be baptized in. I was baptized in the Ocean by John Johnson from Rigby, Idaho, on 2- November 1918. I was confirmed the same day by A.P Anderson, Swedish Mission President. I was now a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. As I travel home the next day, I began to worry, “What would my wife say?” We both had been studying the Book of Mormon together, but we had never spoken about getting baptized. After I told her what had happened, she said in a quiet voice, “Are you sure it is right?” What a relief, she was not mad at me, and together we continued to study. The next spring, Ammy asked for baptism. President A.P. Anderson baptized her on 30 May 1919, and she was confirmed the same day by S.P; Nilsson, from Smithfield, Utah. What a blessing that we were both united in our faith, however, our family and relatives were not supportive of our decision.

Life timeline of Ammy Johnson

1888
Ammy Johnson was born on 29 Sep 1888
Ammy Johnson was 3 years old when Thomas Edison patents the motion picture camera. Thomas Alva Edison was an American inventor and businessman, who has been described as America's greatest inventor. He developed many devices that greatly influenced life around the world, including the phonograph, the motion picture camera, and the long-lasting, practical electric light bulb. Dubbed "The Wizard of Menlo Park", he was one of the first inventors to apply the principles of mass production and large-scale teamwork to the process of invention, and is often credited with the creation of the first industrial research laboratory.
Ammy Johnson was 15 years old when The Wright brothers make their first attempt to fly with the Wright Flyer at Kitty Hawk, North Carolina. The Wright brothers, Orville and Wilbur, were two American aviators, engineers, inventors, and aviation pioneers who are generally credited with inventing, building, and flying the world's first successful airplane. They made the first controlled, sustained flight of a powered, heavier-than-air aircraft on December 17, 1903, four miles south of Kitty Hawk, North Carolina. In 1904–05 the brothers developed their flying machine into the first practical fixed-wing aircraft. Although not the first to build experimental aircraft, the Wright brothers were the first to invent aircraft controls that made fixed-wing powered flight possible.
Ammy Johnson was 26 years old when Archduke Franz Ferdinand and his wife, Sophie, Duchess of Hohenberg, were assassinated by a Yugoslav nationalist named Gavrilo Princip in Sarajevo, sparking the outbreak of World War I. Archduke Franz Ferdinand, Archduke of Austria-Este was a member of the imperial Habsburg dynasty, and from 1896 until his death the heir presumptive (Thronfolger) to the Austro-Hungarian throne. His assassination in Sarajevo precipitated Austria-Hungary's declaration of war against Serbia, which in turn triggered a series of events that resulted in Austria-Hungary's allies and Serbia's declaring war on each other, starting World War I.
Ammy Johnson was 32 years old when The Nineteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution was ratified, guaranteeing women's suffrage in America. The Nineteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution prohibits the states and the federal government from denying the right to vote to citizens of the United States on the basis of sex. It was adopted on August 18, 1920.
Ammy Johnson was 51 years old when Adolf Hitler signs an order to begin the systematic euthanasia of mentally ill and disabled people. Adolf Hitler was a German politician, demagogue, and Pan-German revolutionary, who was the leader of the Nazi Party, Chancellor of Germany from 1933 to 1945 and Führer ("Leader") of Nazi Germany from 1934 to 1945. As dictator, Hitler initiated World War II in Europe with the invasion of Poland in September 1939, and was central to the Holocaust.
Ammy Johnson was 57 years old when World War II: Hiroshima, Japan is devastated when the atomic bomb "Little Boy" is dropped by the United States B-29 Enola Gay. Around 70,000 people are killed instantly, and some tens of thousands die in subsequent years from burns and radiation poisoning. World War II, also known as the Second World War, was a global war that lasted from 1939 to 1945, although conflicts reflecting the ideological clash between what would become the Allied and Axis blocs began earlier. The vast majority of the world's countries—including all of the great powers—eventually formed two opposing military alliances: the Allies and the Axis. It was the most global war in history; it directly involved more than 100 million people from over 30 countries. In a state of total war, the major participants threw their entire economic, industrial, and scientific capabilities behind the war effort, blurring the distinction between civilian and military resources. World War II was the deadliest conflict in human history, marked by 50 to 85 million fatalities, most of whom were civilians in the Soviet Union and China. It included massacres, the genocide of the Holocaust, strategic bombing, premeditated death from starvation and disease and the only use of nuclear weapons in war.
Ammy Johnson was 69 years old when Space Race: Launch of Sputnik 1, the first artificial satellite to orbit the Earth. The Space Race refers to the 20th-century competition between two Cold War rivals, the Soviet Union (USSR) and the United States (US), for dominance in spaceflight capability. It had its origins in the missile-based nuclear arms race between the two nations that occurred following World War II, aided by captured German missile technology and personnel from the Aggregat program. The technological superiority required for such dominance was seen as necessary for national security, and symbolic of ideological superiority. The Space Race spawned pioneering efforts to launch artificial satellites, uncrewed space probes of the Moon, Venus, and Mars, and human spaceflight in low Earth orbit and to the Moon.
Ammy Johnson died on 25 Mar 1967 at the age of 78
