Look at these pictures. What do you see? Do you see families? A churchy background? Does your focus rest on the expressions? Is there an unusual event about to take place? Or do you see, as I do, happiness and joy? Do you see, as I do, individuals upon which a great change has come to pass? Do you see, as I do, lives changed by the Gospel of Jesus Christ?

Violeta and Jorge are two of my favorite people in the entire world. They have been great examples of faith in their decisions to follow Jesus Christ and enter into the covenant, or promise, of baptism with Him. Consider this statement by the Book of Mormon prophet Nephi: "He hath filled me with his love, even unto the consuming of my flesh." I testify that such a deep love exists and can be felt by trusting and confiding one hundred percent in our Savior. He is the rock upon which "ye must build your foundation; that when the devil shall send forth his mighty winds, yea, his shafts in the whirlwind, yea, when all his hail and his mighty storm shall beat upon you, it shall have no power over you to drag you down to the gulf of misery and endless wo, because of the rock upon which ye are built, which is a sure foundation, a foundation whereon if men build they cannot fall" (Helaman 5:12). Baptism brings forgiveness, offers an opportunity for change, is the way to enter if it is our desire to dwell with God eternally, and most important to our current mortal experience--joy!
