Man what a week! Training is good but also weird. I like it and am growing a lot but it can be kinda stressful! One thing I really like about Elder Barlow is that he really wants to be a good missionary! It makes my life a lot easier because I don't have to like try and force him to do things. He has a great desire and so we're going to keep trying to work on the knowledge and that desire is really going to pay off! I am excited to see that! We had a good week and have been really focused on getting people ready for baptism and setting dates with them. And if they aren't willing really to work on that then we are kinda just moving on. One thing I have really noticed is that if people don't really have that desire to change than we cannot do a thing for them. That's hard to accept sometimes. Because I have obviously seen how the Gospel can change people. The word "can" is a big word though. If they aren't going to be willing to change and aren't willing to let it happen then it isn't going to. We have been teaching a girl named Shondelle and she is sweet! She is about thirty and has an adorable 1 year old kid! He reminds me of Korver when he was younger. But anyway it was really neat as we taught her the restoration to be able to almost see her light up! What D&C says is so true, there are so many people who are kept from the truth, only because they know not where to find it! I have seen that! The Gospel fills holes in peoples and families lives! It is a key and people need it! So we are excited for Shondelle to prepare for her date on Sept. 7. We are also teaching a guy named Adrian. He is a boss! He has had a really rough past but the desire he has is so great! I am excited for him! I love it here in Barbados and I expect a lot of great things soon! So going back to what I was talking about earlier something that Bro. Mayers said really hit me. He said, "This church shows you how good you can be." Now i've been pondering on that and it is so true. As you live gospel standards you will be able to reach that full potential that your Heavenly Father has for you. So follow your Savior and you will be able to see "How good you can be." I love you guys! The church is true and our Heavenly Father loves us! Love, Elder SmithMe and Elder Barlow after planning!
