Cyndi~ On Monday, July 22 Elder Barker flew to South Carolina. We were able to speak to him while he was waiting for his flight. He sounded great. He was so excitied to get to the mission and find out who his new companion would be :)
These are the pictures that were taken on Monday the 22nd when he arrived. The mission home posted them on their Facebook page on Wednesday.
Before Joel left he told me that when the mission posted picture of him with his mission President that he was determined to get Pres Holm to smile with teeth, He Did IT!
We expect his P-day to change to Monday, can't wait to hear about all he is doing as a missionary!
