Love the Atonement!

So this last week was good! We are still having problems with our investigators being anti-ed or they are starting to chose to not follow the gospel. It is so sad and so hard to see others that we love and we are striving so hard to help deny something so pure and something so strong that brings light and peace into our lives. 

Well as we went to a less active families house to teach them, it just so happened to be that their 9 year old grandson Marcos was there. Well we felt prompted to start teaching him the restoration. As we asked him if he had any questions that he hasn't found the answer to them yet. He told us how he was struggling because he didn't understand why his older brother had to be in the hospital and why he had to feel so much pain. It was such a special moment for us to testify about the atonement of our Savior in such a simple way that he was able to understand it. The spirit was so strong. And he was able to leave with a smile on his face! 

I'm so grateful for the atonement of our Savior Jesus Christ and all that it does for us. I know that it is complex, hard to understand at times, but when we study it simply as if we were a child it becomes easier to understand! I know He lives and that He died and lives for us! 

Mosiah 3:19 For the natural man is an enemy to God, and has been from the fall of Adam, and will be, forever and ever, unless he yields to the enticings of the Holy Spirit, and putteth off the natural man and becometh a saint through the atonement of Christ the Lord, and becometh as a child, submissive, meek, humble, patient, full of love, willing to submit to all things which the Lord seeth fit to inflict upon him, even as a child doth submit to his father.
