Hope Ya Know, We Had A Hard Time

Tell poor McKenna that I don't miss getting up and putting up the Flags! Haha What I like about the desert is that it is always nice and warm in the morning! Haha Yes we had to come in early for the Fourth, just like usual. We updated records and stuff.  

This week was really good. We have been spending some time trying to get used to the new area book app that we have. I'm super excited to have these technologies! It is weird that it is July already. Time just doesn't want to slow down I guess! 


The work has been going good. We set up for the Anderson's to come over to our Bishop's house for the Fourth of July, we also helped them move out of their house. They were looking for anything that could give them a sense of normality in their lives. They came, and we shared a message with them so that was great! 

They had a good time and the people who were there really helped them feel at home. We shared the message from Elder Cook called "Hope Ya Know, We Had a Hard Time." One of the Bishop's sons had a friend over and the message really helped him out a lot. Hopefully we will be able to start teaching him as well. 

We also had a great experience doing some service for a random guy this week. We were visiting a member of our ward and we saw his neighbor struggling trying to remove a little palm tree from his front yard. We went over and offered to help and he let us. After a some hard work and lots of sweat..... we couldn't get it. So we got our member to come use his truck and we pulled it out that way. So we were talking to the neighbor and we just asked him if there was anyone that we could come by and share a message too, and he said we could come by next Wednesday and teach him and his daughter! So that was awesome for us! :)

This week has been filled with a lot of good things so that has made me happy!

Have a Happy Birthday, Momma! :D I love you and miss you! I hope you all have a great week!

Love,

Elder Barker
