The Call..................

Will's call came on July 12, 2012, he was on his way to a baseball trip, and dad was out of town! So he took it with him and then met us at the Buckner Family Reunion to read it, and some of the Barkers joined us to hear the news.......

"Dear Elder Barker:

You are hereby called to serve as a missionary of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. You are assigned to labor in the Brazil Sao Paulo Interlagos Mission.  It is anticipated that you will serve for a period of 24 months.

You should report to the Brazil Missionary Training Center on Wednesday, December 12, 2012. You will prepare to preach the gospel in the Portuguese language."

Such a long time to wait! Will had a great attitude though and was able to go to SUU for a semester, learned a lot and made some great friends.
