9 Jan 2017

This last week I have been thinking that I should count the blessing that I had receive from Heavenly Father. I did prayer and suddenly my mind just stuck with this "Jesus Christ and His atonement". Once I finished my prayer I think about His Atonement and it had has been healing my feeling before. There is another phase of the atonement which makes me love the savior even more and fills my soul with gratitude beyond expression. It is that in addition to atoning for Adam's transgression, thereby bringing about the resurrection, the savior by his suffering paid the debt for the personal sins of every living soul that ever dwelt upon the earth. But this he did conditionally. The benefits of this suffering for our individual trangressions will not come to us unconditionally in the same sense that the Resurrection will come regardless of what we do.

Miracle 1:
We felt so sorry to our muslim neighbor which is feeling not well. They are very nice to us, they gave us some foods before. When we meet them in the elevator the mom felt so sick and we can't do anything except pray for her. I had a thought that we should cook for her and she will be happy because we're showing that we care about them even though different religion. So once we arrive at home and we were cooking for her and we gave them the food. We felt better after gave them that food (they accepted it). The next day we accidentally met them under our apartment and we asked how is her feeling? She told us she that she felt even better and even said that when we are so nice with her and her family, her sickness and pain are gone. She grateful for the food that we had been provide for them and she expressed her thankful that they have such a kind neighbor like us. She said it for a few times. I remember the story of Jesus Christ healing a lot of people that were sick, dumb, blind and so on. I thought we just represent Jesus Christ in our action, work, thought and desire, because we just practice our Christlike. Eventhough they are muslim, to be kind is unlimited to Heavenly Father's children. By Elder Dale G. Renlund:
 The closer we are to Jesus Christ in the thoughts and intents of our hearts, the more we appreciate His innocent suffering, the more grateful we are for grace and forgiveness, and the more we want to repent and become like Him. Our absolute distance from Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ is important, but the direction we are heading is even more crucial. God is more pleased with repentant sinners who are trying to draw closer to Him than with self-righteous, faultfinding individuals who, like the Pharisees and scribes of old, do not realize how badly they need to repent.”

Each Sunday we partake of the sacrament, we covenant to always remember the Savior and keep his commandments as well as take upon ourselves His name. These promises we make, if kept, enable us to draw closer to Jesus Christ “in the thoughts and intents or our hearts” so that we become more grateful for what He has done for us. They also motivate us to try and become more like Him

Miracle 2 :
Prayer bring Miracle. We were with recent convert to proselyte. Before we begin the contacting we start with a prayer and she put very spesific prayer and I can felt the spirit. Soon after that we felt very excited to do missionary work. We were sharing some random scriptures with them. At the first time we were sharing about repentance and it was kind of weird cause they didn't really know much about it. But I felt the spirit as I shared with them. Second is we were sharing a random scripture and it was talking about faith and rejoice and the person that we talking with were very interested and he accepted our invitation to meet again. I knew that as we rely more to him, He will bless us with comfort or as know as miracles.

Miracle 3:
our investigator just back from china and we called them to set an appointment to meet again and they accepted it. When we were teaching her, her mom asking us if her daughter can be baptized before her father going back to shanghai. She always goes to church since 7 years old until now so it is a big deal for her to be baptized now. :)
