Baptism May 5,2014

Dear family and friends,
               How are things going this week? I apologize for emailing you all so late! Last night we went over to Davids to teach him the Word of Wisdom. We brought up Martins Cove to him and he wanted to go today! So we went to Martins cove bright and early at seven this morning! And that was a lot of fun we went through the ENTIRE tour and visitors center. They have a really cool setup with all kinds of old Blacksmith Shops and Cabins! That was a lot of fun! Then we got to go back to the Cove and looked over the meadow where everyone suffered that winter. President Hinckley loved to sit at that very spot and ponder for hours. I always think of him when I go to that little Amphitheater they have there. We got to see Jeremy baptized on Saturday! I was the one who baptized Jeremy and Stephanie. That was an amazing experience that I won't forget anytime soon. It was nerve wracking at first, but it went over really well! Jeremy and Stephanie are now baptized and confirmed members! That was the weeks greatest success! Elder Bench got here on Wednesday! He is from Oakley, ID and loves to Rodeo. He is a big time cowboy who used to ride Broncos out in the rodeos. He is an awesome Elder. So far I have loved every minute of being his companion. It will be sad if I get transferred this time around. On Sunday we got another member referral! Their is a family where the Dad and the Brother are baptized, but the little brother isn't. So now we will be teaching him, and drawing him to the waters of baptism! Casper is awesome! We are having a lot of successes! I really do appreciate this area and all of the members in it! They work well with the missionaries, and we are seeing blessings by working with the members! 

Well I love you all have a great week!

Love, Elder Barber
