Life is as great as ever in Cipó. Life really is so good. Courtney wrote me and said that with the kind of family we have She´s excited for eternity. Man, I love her. I couldn´t agree more. We are extremely blessed.
Thanks for the update on everything. Sounds like things are going pretty well. I´m really glad to hear that Nathan Anderson is doing alright. That´s so scary. The Lord was definitely looking out for him.
Track going well? I wish I would have enjoyed it more. Looking back on it, they really are some good times, even running 400s.
I´m trying to send pictures, but it´s really difficult, so we´ll see.
And mom, will you save my emails? My teacher in the MTC said that he´s really glad he has them to look back on, like a second journal.
Anyway, the work is going well. There are amazing people here. We have a baptism set on Sunday for Victor (13). He´s really awesome. His step-father is an in-active former bishop/counselor in the Stake President. He´s been in-active for years. Sounds like you dad, except for the falling away from the church part. You´re not allowed to do that. Anyway Victor is really solid. He´s reading the Book of Mormon and Praying every night. We´re just praying that his family won´t keep him from being baptized. Also teaching a great family right now with a member of the ward. The member´s name is Jefferson Santana and he´s super solid. The family lives right next to him and he comes with us to the lessons. I´ll keep you up dated.
I miss everyone, but probably Zoe the most... ;) So I´m glad you´re recording some things!
Love you all, My testimony is getting stronger everyday. Here´s something I learned this week, Studying the Scriptures gives us Spiritual Strength. Simple, but so true. Romans 12:21
Love, Elder Barker
Chocolate stuffed crust pizza. America could learn a few things.

Happy B-day to jim and stock!
