Transfer end 7-14-2014

Dear Family and Friends,
                 It has been an excellent week! This past week we got to teach Tammy three times with a member attending the lesson. Tammy is doing fine her daughter has been in Utah this past week and will be returning soon. And her son is home, but it is hard to get a twelve year old interested in the gospel. But that wont stop us from trying! On Tuesday I was able to go on exchanges with Elder Jameson. On that exchange we received a referral for a married couple named Erica and Aaron. Erica and Aaron have a good friend who is a member of the Y.S.A ward here in Casper. They had investigated the Church before but the missionaries who taught them did not really respect them and came off the wrong way. So they stopped investigating. The Y.S.A ward put on a demonstration of "The Mormons Next Door". Aaron attended that and was very impressed with the statistics the Church has with married couples staying together and not getting a divorce. He was also impressed with the health statistics of Latter Day Saints. So he wanted to investigate. When we taught them Aaron told us he knew the Book of Mormon was true. Erica is still investigating the subject and is trying to find out if it is true. Aaron wants to get baptized with Erica so we will have to continue to work with her to get her that testimony. The Lord truly is preparing people in our area!! Elder Jameson and I were out tracting one morning and we found Ally who is sixteen years old, but was interested in learning about God calling another Prophet. So Elder Bench and I went over there and taught her the Restoration. We weren't able to actually finish the lesson. But we will meet with her once she gets back off of vacation. We also tracted into Zack a couple doors down from Ally, and he works for a member of the Church. He was super nice to us, and said we could stop back by! We haven't been able to get in with him, but hopefully soon! 
                What a wonderful transfer it has been. I have definitely learned a lot being here in Casper this transfer. There is a lot of things that Casper has taught me. This weekend transfer calls will be going out. I don't know if I will be staying here in Casper or not. If I get transferred there is a slight chance there will be no email next week. I guess we will see. I am thankful for all of you and I hope you all have a great week!

Love, Elder Barber
