Beautiful Upstate New York

So this week has been a pretty crazy week. Not much to report other then we have 2 new investigators and we have 2 with a baptism just around the corner. Transfers our coming up we have transfer calls the 15th.
I was think on what to share this week and the thought kept coming to me was faith. Faith is one of the first steps in becoming fully converted to the Gospel of Jesus Christ. " Faith without works is dead" that is one of the many saying we have here in the NYUM. We have so many less actives it is quite said they all have powerful testimonies of the restored gospel but as i have been talking with president rogers he has told me that "we must act upon our faith to show our savior that we do love him and know he did in fact die for us" Faith is one of the first steps we make to return to our Heavenly Father. To be truly converted to the Gospel of Jesus Christ we must first have Faith, then we must Repent and apply the Atonement in our lives, Be baptized by someone holding the Priesthood Authority of God, Receive the gift of the Holy Ghost, and Endure to the end. The definition of Faith is " to not have a perfect knowledge of things... if ye have faith ye hope for things which are not seen, which are true." (Alma 32:21)
I invite you all to exercise you faith in our savior Jesus Christ. Take some extra time out of your see all the blessing our Heavenly Father has given you. Because Faith with out works is dead, you can say you have all the faith in the world but if you do not act on that faith you faith will slowly go away. The Prophet Joseph Smith acted on his faith when he read out of the book of James, He had faith that Heavenly Father would answer his prayer of knowing which church he should join. If a 14 year old boy with out a education have the faith that his prayer would be answered and acted upon that faith why can we?
haha sorry i totally just noticed i went a tangent  on faith. But i know faith is so import to the Lords Gospel. That is why it is one of the first principles. Hope you all have a wonderful day and do not forget to always exercise you faith!! Love you all and thank you for all your support and prayers!
