Don't be afraid to share the gospel!

Happy New Year! It has been so weird to be away from home for New Years! We just stayed in the apartment and went to bed a little early. I haven't received your package yet, but I'm super excited! 

I don't have any pictures this week because I forgot to bring my camera to the library! :/ But that just means there will be lots and lots of pictures for you next week! :) 

This week has been a really great week! We started teaching a new investigator this week. His name is M. He is a friend of a member of our ward. We went over to the members house to teach him a lesson on doing member missionary work and he tells us that he has a friend that we could go see right then and there! We were like OK!! Then he started over thinking it and told us that his Mom didn't want missionaries over and his brother doesn't like him. We looked at him and said "We are going to go see him right now!" So we did. While we were over there we read the introduction to the Book of Mormon and asked him if it was something that he wanted to learn more about! He said he wanted to learn more and we were like YES! Then his Dad came over and started to ask us questions about the church, and he told M. that it was his choice to learn more and he would have his parent's support! You never know what will happen if you just try to share the gospel with those you know!

Things are definitely starting to pick up after the holidays. Campus opened a few days ago and classes start today so we will be able to start going up there and do some work. Our other investigator is doing really well. We are going to be meeting with him tomorrow and see how he has been doing. I miss you guys a lot! Have an awesome week!

Love,

Elder Sam Barker
