Favorite Scripture:
1 Corinthians 10:13 There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it.

Neat Story:
Elder Baker has had a wonderful mission in Thailand. He tells everyone that the most important thing he learned on his mission is the importance of family. He talks of many experiences with the people of Thailand who also have a strong belief in families. He also tells of some very heart wrenching stories of families who do not hold this ideal very high. The people of Thailand have a very strong testimony of the gospel. Some members tell of their experiences of having their spouses and family members cut all ties with them when they made the decision to join the church. Yet, despite this, they still remain strong and faithful in their testimony of the gospel. Some members of Thailand have to travel some 4 hours to church in their area. It has been very educational listening to Elder Baker's adventures and missionary work in Thailand over the past two years. Elder Baker gave his homecoming talk the Sunday after he returned home. The subject was being valiant in the testimony of Jesus Christ. The congregation was extremely reverent throughout his talk, and when he bore his testimony in Thai, you could hear a pin drop. Many members told his mother afterward, that even though they could not understand his Thai testimony that they could still feel the strength of his testimony and that it gave them goosebumps. Elder Baker has also been asked to be a speaker at Stake Conference the middle of October and to share his experiences of teaching the gospel to the people of Thailand. There also has been a lot of cooking going on in the house. Elder Baker has been whipping up some great Thai meals. It is quite ironic that at the first of his mission, he did not like Thai food very well, and now he absolutely loves it and is always cooking his family a new dish to try. Next up is preparing for the next chapter of his life, which is finishing up his college degree at BYU-Idaho. But before that, Elder Baker will be taking his mother and older brother back to Thailand in December 2011 to visit the people and the areas that he served in. His mother is looking forward to this and can't wait to experience the differences of the Thai culture and meet all the wonderful people that Elder Baker came into contact with. Reports are that he has been a missionary that other Elders have admired and have enjoyed knowing and working with. President Smith and his wife told Elder Baker that his time spent in Thailand as a missionary teaching the gospel will have long lasting effects on the people and the church in Thailand. Elder Baker says that his mission has been an AWESOME, life changing experience. One that he will never forget. He highly encourages all young men and women that are of age to make the commitment to serve a full time mission if they are able. Elder Baker's love for the gospel has grown tremendously, which has shown through all his emails home and now in person. As always remember.....NEVER SURRENDER....NEVER GIVE UP!!
