How´s everyone doing? Man this last week was super good. Carol was baptized Saturday and confirmed on Sunday. Gabriel, her brother baptized her. He´s 16 and she´s 18. Gabriel blessed the Sacrament too, it was super cool. They´re awesome. They´re both going to be great missionaries here in a couple years. Their other brother is ready to be baptized too. He´s 20 and he´s living with his girlfriend right now, but we have a Family Night there tonight and we´re going to help them mark a date for marriage. His girlfriend wants to be baptized too!
Man the Buckner Reunion sounds like it was a blast. I want that video that Uncle Jimmy made ;). Summer sounds like it´s a bunch of fun, and that´s exciting all the new stuff with the house and the trailer. Does Grandpa have a lot of hay this year? And how does the barn look?
I spoke in church yesterday. I spoke about love and charity and how it is at the heart of missionary work. I was feeling pretty good about it, but then afterwards I realized that no one really understood what I was saying... It was a shame. But I think the main message got across ;) Oh! It´s Kenzee´s birthday this week! Happy birthday gizmo. Holy smokes, 18? Hope she has a good one, even though she already got a car.
I love you all. I´m so grateful for all of your support and love. The Lord really has a plan for us, isn´t that amazing? He knows us personally and he knows exactly what we need to experience in order to reach our potential. I had a really special experience this week with an inactive woman. We just taught the Restoration and bore testimony of the first vision. Her attitude changed a lot by the end of the lesson. She started to cry and told us that she knew she needed to come back to church. There are so many members that are just waiting for someone to call them back church. Join in the Rescue like Presidente Monson says!
Love you all, Elder Barker
P.S. Don´t hack my email MoM!
