Meet the Barringtons. This is a family that was Baptized this Spring. They are an amazing family. They are like "add water only " and stir and you have perfect pancakes. All they needed was the waters of Baptism and they were off an running. Sister Barrington is a counselor in the Relief Society Presidency, they have both had their Patriarchal blessings and have found ancestors and have been to the temple to have their work done. They do everything they are asked to do and look for every opportunity to serve anyone and everyone. That has been a life habit.
The sweet love and support of the Barringtons reach far beyond their own ward or community. The little angel in this next picture is someone that has become a dear friend of ours. She lives in Alexandria. She is 80 years old, and one of the most fun and lively people I know. She like the Barringtons, has lived a life of service and generosity. Now for the joy of this entry. Sister Beverly was baptized on August 16. I was sharing with Sister Barrington how wonderful Sister Beverly was and how thrilled we all were that she was going to be Baptized and President and I were coming up to Alexandria for the Baptism. She said "we would love to come to her baptism." It was an hour and half drive for them to come. I couldn't believe they were going to come so far to support someone they didn't really know. They came and joined us for this very special baptism. I don't know if I can explain the sprit that was there as this family brought their spirit of love and joy and joined it with the humble and joyful spirit of this sweet little sister. We all went to dinner after and we were all truly hearts knit together in love. It was so wonderful. It made me happy to see our missionaries experience the joy and sweetness of their labors.
