I have an incredible story to share with all of you! Sister Peters and I were out knocking her first week here and we knocked into this guy named Mathew. He said he was interested but we didn’t think too much of it because a lot of people say that and then disappear. But he was there! We taught him the Restoration lesson and he was super excited about the Book of Mormon. When we came back he said he had been really loved Joseph Smiths testimony and story at the beginning of the book and feels that this all could be true. We then went back and taught him the Plan of Salvation. He believed every word!! He then wanted to be baptized. We invited him to be baptized on the 17th of October. He wrote the date in the Plan of Salvation pamphlet. He knows the Book of Mormon is true and can’t wait to be baptized. He is also super excited about General Conference. He recognizes the Holy Ghost is now in his life and can’t wait to receive it as a gift after he is baptized. He also wants to move his baptism date to October 10th but he has to quit smoking before he can. So we are going over today and taking away his vape and all other smoking stuff. He is incredible and the Gospel truly is bringing light into his life. I am so grateful to be a missionary and witness miracle like Mathew.
The atonement is real. Christ has already taken the bitter cup of sin for us we must be the ones who accept the atonement. Alma 34 is a scripture that truly touches my heart. "But that ye have patience, and bear with those afflictions, with a firm hope that ye shall one day rest from all of your afflictions." We will mess up in our lives, sometimes we will make a huge mistake, but no sin isn’t already taken care of. Jesus Christ want to heal us but we must let him. I love my savior and my brother and I know that through hard things we become the person he wants us to become. Repentance, full repentance, is the cure. Don’t ever think you can never be forgiven, He will forgive and He will remember no more. Be brave and ask for forgiveness and be humble enough to accept it. I love you all and pray that you will access the atonement every day. It is there for you.
I know the Book of Mormon is the word of God and through it we can grow closer to our loving savior Jesus Christ. I know this is his Gospel restored for these latter days. I know that Thomas S. Monson is a prophet of God and receives revelation for us. I am so excited for General Conference coming up this weekend. I know that Joseph Smith was a prophet and through him Christ was able to restore this Gospel.
Life is hard but Christ makes it worth it.
C’est la vie.
