Morgan's Baptism

Baptism is a very important part of obtaining the highest kingdom of glory.  You are a little princess and I know you can overcome any fear that crosses your path.

(can you also tell Chester this too) awesome I'm so proud that you got baptized. It is a wonderful experience.  I hope you can always cherish and remember this experience every time that you partake of the sacrament.  

It is an oath and a covenant with your Heavenly Father, that you will continue to follow in the footsteps of Jesus Christ.  A lot of people think, in other churches, that baptism is just there to help you be saved or become a member of the church.  But no, baptism is a loving plea to our Heavenly Father that we will do the right thing, and become better and progress in faith, because the rock of our redeemer, who is Christ our Savoir and our brother.  And now is the time to prepare to meet Christ.  When we are making covenants, we are showing God that we love him and that we want to follow him in his path to salvation.  

So remember, baptism is more than church membership, it is a connectivity to our Father in Heaven, allowing us to receive the Holy Ghost as a companion of faith and a guardian of righteousness.  Reconcile your faith and all you know every Sunday, when you partake of the sacrament and when you bare your testimony.  Read the scriptures, pray and involve your spirit in the great spirits of others and you will feel the holy spirit grow and evolve deeply in your life. 

I want to tell you that your heavenly father loves you and is happy that you took that step in your life to continue fulfilling the steps towards salvation.  I wish every one of my investigators this chance of great happiness and good fruit that you have partaken of, but due to free agency we have to let them grow and allow them to partake of the nutrients that us missionary's and church members have built up inside of ourselves.
