Lafayette - don't blink or you'll miss it!

Elder Barrow loves the people of Lafayette!!
The town of 2000 is much smaller than anything he has ever lived in.
These are the pictures he sent of Lafayette.
No traffic light but they have three stop signs!!

With a small city budget, this is a giant step for safety!

Elder Barrow - "Can they do that?"
"Yes, Elder... farmers here park their tractors like the do cars. In front of the house."
Elder Barrow - "Wow...I guess I am a city boy".

The Oregon Countryside

These are some pictures he took while driving his "area".  Quite a difference in the scenery!

A Transforming Experience

Elder Barrow and Elder Schultz are amazing young men. They spend a lot of time helping those who may have lost their way and need a hand up. There was such a man in this area of his mission who's heart was so full of gratitude. Elder Barrow shared some very tender events surrounding this wonderful man and the transformations which happened in his life. When he found out they were leaving his area, he was so sad but grateful for all they had give him. He gave them gifts...something so valuable...they are priceless for what they represent.

"A member, gave this to me. It was one of his prized possessions. He collects Transformers, and because of what  I've done for him in his life, he gave me two."

"That one, named Starscream, and Optimus Prime.  My companion got Bumblebee, and those are ours standing side by side."
