Two travelers walking along a path one day
came to a fork and wondered which way.

Both paths leading to a different location,
but which one would be the right destination?

Scratching their heads, speculating which trail they dare.
They decided to kneel down and offer a prayer.

Simple but fervent their words were sincere,
as they spoke out their questions for God to hear.

"Which way to go? And what path is best?
 which should we trust to lead to your rest?

Is the right one correct or be the left one right?
Lead us please God, for you've optimum sight.

As a missionary I have met travelers similar to these many times. They are often stuck at the fork in the road, screwed and confused with which direction to go. They way for them to go is through Jesus

As the scriptures teach in Alma 38:9

 And now, my son, I have told you this that ye may learn wisdom, that ye may learn of me that there is no other way or means whereby man can be saved, only in and through Christ. Behold, he is the life and the light of the world. Behold, he is the word of truth and righteousness.

And Helaman 5:9

O remember, remember, my sons, the words which king Benjamin spake unto his people; yea, remember that there is no other way nor means whereby man can be saved, only through theatoning blood of Jesus Christ, who shall come; yea, remember that he cometh to redeem the world.

There is on other way then through the Savoir Jesus Christ, and He has named that way as  BAPTISM.

Baptism is what we participate in order to truly follow the Savior Jesus Christ who is the Son of God.

I am so blessed because I have the opportunity to invite everyone and anyone who hasn't been baptized by the proper priesthood authority to be baptized.

I have seen countless lives changed as they have met us at that fork, chosen to be baptized and had their lives altered completely for better. Better in the sense that they have felt peace, happiness, joy, comfort, gained understand and come to better understand their relationship with God and His plan for them.

I am grateful also for the cleansing power that Baptism provides! It wipes away any and every sin. Alma 7

14 Now I say unto you that ye must repent, and be born again; for the Spirit saith if ye are not born again ye cannot inherit the kingdom of heaven; therefore come and be baptized unto repentance, that ye may be washed from your sins, that ye may have faith on the Lamb of God, who taketh away the sins of the world, who is mighty to save and to cleanse from all unrighteousness.
 15 Yea, I say unto you come and fear not, and lay aside every sin, which easily doth beset you, which doth bind you down to destruction, yea, come and go forth, and show unto your God that ye are willing to repent of your sins and enter into a covenant with him to keep his commandments, and witness it unto him this day by going into the waters of baptism.

I have been changed and made clean through baptism and then going to church after and taking the sacrament. My invitation to you is to be baptized if you have not and experience for yourself the blessing it is to be clean. If you have been baptized then go to church and take the sacrament and let it be an experience that will change your life! 

Put Christ first!
