Faith in Christ is Born of the Spirit

Baptism days are such a wonderful blessing. Today we had 3 and the zone is only 10 baptisms away from reaching their yearly goal.  We are all pulling together to help meet this years goal and surpass it by many more.  Elders Obray and Rainey from the Mechitiw Branch and Elders Allen and Pita from the Tonoas Branch have been working hard sharing the gospel.   
Our faith in Christ is born of the Spirit as we hear the word of God taught by those who are His commissioned servants, both living and dead. As we build upon that foundation, our faith is strengthened by prayers of faith that have become a part of our daily life and sometimes a part of our hourly life. Our mortal existence is necessary to fulfill the plan of salvation. We must therefore live in this world, but we must also resist the worldly influences that are ever before us.

The gift of the Holy Ghost, given to us when we are confirmed, gives us the ability to discern the difference between the giving ways of the Kingdom of God and the taking practices of the world. 
We need the Holy Ghost as our constant companion to help us make better choices in the decisions that confront us daily.
