This week Elder Sanhueza and I have been trying to work on helping people understand the core principles of the lessons and applying it to themselves. We have seen success in this as one of our less actives, after having heard the plan of salvation, began to search for a pen and paper asking us to write the 5 steps of the Gospel for her to remember how receive forgiveness for her sins. A similar thing happened with one of our other investigators who wanted to write down the 5 steps in the Gospel to send to her daughter who is far from home. The Spirit testifies in simplicity, which is something we have been trying to hone in our teaching skills, and when that Spirit gets to the heart of a person, naturally they want to change. What more is that they also feel the need to share the message with those who they love most.
The Gospel is simple but not easy. Often one can find himself or herself straying from their beliefs. Never forget the first two steps, faith and repentance. Coupled with the Sacrament it is irreplaceable in our lives.
