This week has been amazing! It is really fun and energizing to see the atonement change people’s lives – both investigators and missionaries. It is very important for a missionary to gain a testimony of the atonement, and to know that God exists and is loving, just and merciful. Some missionaries come and they struggle because they haven’t come with the right mindset, but over a couple of weeks or months it’s amazing to see the change that they experience.
The atonement is for the unworthy who need to be cleaned and the worthy who need strength to stay clean and keep being sanctified. That is the process we are all in. It is very interesting what the word sacrament means ‘Instrumento para hacer santo’ (instrument to make holy). That’s what it is for; it’s there so we can continue to be sanctified by the spirit and blood of Christ. To those who are sanctified there are big promeses (promises) and blessing that we receive.
Keep being worth to recieve the blessing that God has for each one of you.
Love you all!
This week my comp and I had some good experiences, and we’ve seen some good signs in our area. Our Ward Mission Leader is now working hand in hand with us. He has struggled a lot in his life, having gone through two marriages and experienced a lot of other things. He really opened up to us and expressed that he needs help, so we helped him as much as we could and then turned him to the Source. He recently gave us a referral and it’s his girlfriend, who has lots of potential, so that turned out well.
Also I want to share with you all some confirmations I have had this week. First, a quote from Tadd R. Callister: “With increased vision comes increased motivation.” If we have an eternal perspective on things, we will know for sure what we need to do and we will feel a desire to do it. People who don’t obey are disobedient because they don’t see the point and don’t feel a desire to obey because their vision is so limited and they don’t understand their divine potential as a child of God. If they knew who God was and that he was just like us and had to obey to progress, they would do the same. We need increased vision.
Second, we were some one before this life. If we could see who we were we would be very surprised about some of our actions and feelings toward some things. We were very valiant in the testimony of Christ before this life and while here on earth we need to do the same. If you want to study more on that topic, I invite you to do so.
Keep being obedient and going to the temple!
Love you all,
