Blessings of Baptism

Elder Loveless and his companion with President & Sister Perrotti
Man we had a sweet lesson Saturday. We were teaching one of our investigators Elias, and he wasn’t keeping his commitments. So we began to talk to him about the blessings of this gospel and how it would bless his life. As we asked him about what he wanted in life he began to tell us. We then asked him if he had found it, and he said no. we then testified that the gospel of Jesus Christ had exactly what he was needing and that it would bless him. He told us he wanted it. We then testified to him how baptism was that door for him to enter into so that he may find that happiness.

I was reading in 2 Nephi 25:16-17:
16 And after they have been scattered, and the Lord God hath scourged them by other nations for the space of many generations, yea, even down from generation to generation until they shall be persuaded to believe in Christ, the Son of God, and the atonement, which is infinite for all mankind—and when that day shall come that they shall believe in Christ, and worship the Father in his name, with pure hearts and clean hands, and look not forward any more for another Messiah, then, at that time, the day will come that it must needs be expedient that they should believe these things.

 17 And the Lord will set his hand again the second time to restore his people from their lost and fallen state. Wherefore, he will proceed to do a marvelous work and a wonder among the children of men.
I’m so grateful to see this firsthand of our Father and Savior do this marvelous work once again. I’m so grateful to be a missionary of this great work. Love this gospel with all my heart and the blessings from it.

Love you all,

Elder Loveless
