Dear Family,

Good to hear from everyone! General Conference was awesome. I got so much out of it! Now, just need to put it into practice. I was happy to sustain Raimundo Pacheco Pinho as a new area Seventy. His absence to see the ´knee doctor` didn´t fool me. He said in his email today that he was heading to the airport. I think he was there in Salt Lake for the Conference. He is a great man and a great leader. He will begin is service on July 1st, the day he is released as Mission President.

Give Monte a hug for me, Can´t believe he´s going home. Time is so precious. 

Conference is such a good time to make new goals and be better people. And especially a good time to remember the Savior. He has done so much for us. I`m grateful for the testimonies of our leaders and especially for the Apostles. They really know the Lord. It´s incredible to hear their special witnesses. And I love the simple profound teachings that they give us. Be kind. Love everyone. Be grateful. Put your family first. We can be forgiven.

Obedience really brings blessings. If we keep our covenents, defend our faith and serve for the rest of our lives´ we will return to live with our loving Father in Heaven. 

Remember that our 4 minutes are here! We´ve been preparing and learning for thousands of years in the premortal world, just to be here on this earth at this time. Now let´s take advantage of it, let´s Win!

Jesus Christ really lives and his Atonement has redeeming power. We really can be forgiven. And like Elder Bednar said, it also has enabling power to help us become what we really can become.

Love, Elder Barker
