Hello everybody

Hello everybody who reads this. I don't have much time and my letter will be short. 

Barry believes everything we've taught him. He often will try to argue but the Spirit has always been there to quell any objections he has towards being baptized. We were teaching him about the covenant of baptism and he interrupted us to say that although Baptism would bless him spiritually it would hurt him temporally. He proceeded to tell us that the house he's living in is owned by his rich brother. Barry's fear is that if he joins the church he would face being disowned from his family which is devout catholic. If that happens he'll be homeless. He looked at us and with real fear told us that he didn't want to go back to that again. It was really humbling and I feel really bad for the guy. There's not much we can do except help him develop greater faith in Christ insomuch that he would be willing to face those consequences as a result of being baptized. He told us he wouldn't keep it a secret either if he was baptized because he felt like that wouldn't be standing as a witness of God at all times which is part of the covenant of baptism. 

He continues to read and pray about what we teach him and he'll continue to be converted but I pray that his conversion will be deep enough that he'll trust in the Lord enough to be baptized. 

Please keep him in your prayers. 
Elder Trevon Turley
