I want to express my feelings about the atonement of Jesus Christ. It is Real. It is here. It is for us. We must use it. As Missionaries we are here to help bring people unto Christ by faith, Repentance, Baptism, and enduring to the end. We can have faith, but we cannot help bring people unto Christ through the atonement if we ourselves have not used it. i cannot express my gratitued for the atonement and the role that it has played in my life. Do not wait to use it. Do not think that you are "ok" to not use it. The atonement is for us. Christ Brought it to us. But he will not force it upon us. We must choose to use it through our own free will. I had the oportunity the other day to share my tesitmony on the atonement.... and i was thinking how glad i am that i can. Yes i have made mistakes in my life. I am not perfect. But through the atonement i can be made Clean. I was able to share one of the most heart felt testimonies i have shared on the atonement becasue i have experience the blessing for myself. I have felt as Alma has felt, The guilt, the pain. But I also have felt as Alma after he repented,That my joy was never as sweet. Please do not wait to use the atonement. It Will help you.
This has been the hardest 2 months of my life.... But it has been the absolute best. I would not trade one second for this time. I am so thankful for all of you and your examples to me!
