How can a person know if he/she has been born again?
Abel and Esther Rain live in Puerto Madryn, province of Chubut, in southern Argentina. They belong to the Roca ward of the Trelew North Argentina Stake. In May 2015 they were invited to serve in the Buenos Aires Temple and in August they began their mission.
“In the temple there is a peace and harmony that is difficult to describe. It is impossible to find the right words to explain all that is lived and felt. We found a great family in the other missionaries, workers and the presidency of the temple. We have been strengthened as a married couple and lived many wonderful spiritual experiences. One learns everything necessary to return to the presence of our Heavenly Father as a family and gains the strength and vision necessary to face the challenges of each day”, expressed Abel.
As for how they envision their future days, Brother Rain said, “We will now try to return to the temple as often as possible, and we will encourage everyone to prepare for these trips, even though they are long and may require financial effort. Hopefully with our experience we can encourage other married friends to live this experience of serving as missionaries in the temple. They will never regret consecrating this time”.
Revelation verses of the holy spirit
“Within thirty minutes there came a whirlwind which broke the trunk of the oak tree about sixty inches from the ground; the tree swept over three or four fences and fell in the middle of that yard, near Brother Orson Hyde’s wagon and exactly where my carriage had been. What consequences would we have suffered if I had not listened to that Spirit? Of course, no doubt my wife, my children and I would have died. It was the still, gentle voice that spoke to me; no earthquake, no thunder or lightning, but the sweet, gentle voice of the Spirit of God. And it saved my life. What I received was the spirit of revelation.
President Woodruff emphasized the importance of all members of the Church being guided by the Holy Spirit, seeking to receive personal revelation. He assured us that “the Church of God could not survive twenty-four hours without revelation.
What is the greatest testimony a man or woman can have that this is the work of God? I will tell you what is the greatest testimony I have ever had in my life, the surest testimony: it is the testimony of the Holy Spirit, the testimony of the Father and the Son6.

When he leaves on vacation from Pencey Preparatory School for Boys (“One teacher for every ten students”), Holden Morrisey Caufield usually wears his overcoat and a hat with pronounced edges to the crown. As the Fifth Avenue buses go by, some girls who know Holden often think they would see him walking through Saks’ or Altman’s or Lord & Taylor’s, but it’s usually someone else.
God reveals himself as holy spirit
Imagine walking along the coast and finding rocks covered with black shell mollusks, stacked on top of each other to form several layers. Now imagine this scene throughout the rocky intertidal habitat from San Francisco to Tortugas Bay.
The event’s program began with “Go, Drink and Sketch”, in which a selection of photographs by Felipe León, park ranger of the Sierra de San Pedro Mártir National Park, were projected, while a bird illustration activity was given by artist Esther Gámez.
After that followed the talk “Cota de brantas: de Bernicla nigricans a Bourbon Porter” given by Bárbara Ramírez of Terra Peninsular, who spoke about the Branta Negra beer, a product with a cause to raise funds for conservation projects in San Quintín.
