Dear Family,

How was your week? Mine was fantastic! Happy anniversary Mom and Dad. And Happy Birthday for you Dad. Hope you have a good.... 50th? Not yet. But I love you both and hope you have a great week!

We had interviews with Pres. Dalton this last week. It was a very good experience. We talked about the mission, family, goals for after the mission and everything. Transfers are next week, I´ll let you know of any changes. 

 We had a baptism this last week. His name is Darius. He´s dating a member of the ward and had been going to church on his own. He said that last week at church he received an answer. He felt peace. His baptism was very special. We´re taking them to visit the temple this weekend, to start thinking about the next steps. He´s anxious to take the name of his grandparents to do baptisms. He is a great guy.

The world cup is over, so that´s nice. Not as many distractions now. And things are basically back to normal. 

 It´s incredible to think that I´m never alone on the mission, well I´ll always have my companion, but in DC 84:88 it says that there are angels round about us to bear us up. I learned recently that those angels are not necessarily strangers. Why would the Lord send angels that didn´t have anything to do with our lives? I believe that they are the people we love. Our ancestors, descendents and the family of our investigators.  
 For behold, angels are declaring it unto many at this time in our  land; and this is for the purpose of preparing the hearts of the children of men to receive
 his word at the time of his coming in his glory.

 Love you all!

 Elder Barker
