even to an experiment upon my words

It sounds like things are good, so you must have had fun on the Mexico trip. Johnny already has merit badges, that is pretty good, Scott almost has his Eagle wow. I liked  that scripture in Alma 50 it is a good chapter, tomorow I will finish the Book of Mormon, we have been Reading a certian amount everyday as a misión and tomorrow is the last day. I am glad that we have that book and that we know about it, it really changes people. it inspires us to do good, i read that in my study, anything from the Lord will tell us to do good things and that is one way to tell if something is good, the light of Christ. I like what you said also 23 But behold there never was a happier time among the people of Nephi, since the days of Nephi, than in the days of Moroni, yea, even at this time, in the twenty and first year of the reign of the judges. it is pretty cool that a righteous leader can help others to do good, it looks like the people rarley stay happy in the book of Mormon, sadly they just start to get prideful. 19 And thus we see how merciful and just are all the dealings of the Lord, to the fulfilling of all his words unto the children of men; yea, we can behold that his words are verified, even at this time, which he spake unto Lehi, saying:
 20 Blessed art thou and thy children; and they shall be blessed, inasmuch as they shall keep my commandments they shall prosper in the land. But remember, inasmuch as they will not keep my commandments they shall be cut off from the presence of the Lord.
we have the same promise here and when we choose to follow Christ we become childen of light through faith. that is what I got from my study today we choose where we want to end. I like what you said too , I feel like things dont click in my head sometimes, this is true
28 And it came to pass that the God of heaven looked upon the residue‍ of the people, and he wept; and Enoch bore record of it, saying: How is it that the heavens weep, and shed forth their tears as the rain upon the mountains?
 29 And Enoch said unto the Lord: How is it that thou canst weepseeing thou art holy, and from all eternity to all eternity?
 30 And were it possible that man could number the particles of the earth, yea, millions of earths‍ like this, it would not be beginning to the number of thy creationsand thy curtains are stretched out still; and yet thou art there, and thy bosom is there; and also thou art just; thou art merciful and kind forever;
 31 And thou hast taken Zion‍ to thine own bosom, from all thy creations, from all eternity to all eternity; and naught but peace, justiceand truth is the habitation of thy throne; and mercy shall go before thy face and have no end; how is it thou canst weep?
 32 The Lord said unto Enoch: Behold these thy brethren; they are the workmanship of mine own handsand gave unto them their knowledgein the day created them; and in the Garden of Eden, gave unto man his agency;
 33 And unto thy brethren have said, and also given commandment, that they should love‍ one another, and that they should choose me, their Father; but behold, they are without affection, and they hate‍ their own blood;
gives me a lot of comfort and questons but I know that the Lord cares what we do, you can just forget about the Lord for a short time, He always remembers you.

this week what happened well, lets see we had some cool contacts, on the second división I did this week I learned something cool. we had a sister in the área that we know pretty well, she gives us lunch on Saturday, she has a son that is inactive and he hasnt spoke much with us or any missionaries. the sister has tried to help him but he doesnt seem to have any interest, he seems to only be interested in acdc and his girlfriend and stuff. but we passed by and she must have been inspired to ask us if we could give him a blessing if he wants one, supposivly his girl dumped him or something and he was seeing people that werent there and things,and she asked him and to my suprise he accepted and when we gave him the blessing it was really quick but the Spirit was present and we just started talking to him, like `how do you feel`and he said good , and we asked him some more things like `can we say a prayer``do you believe in the word of Christ` he answer no but I used to `immediatley we went to `do you have a desire to believe` and he responded si and so we used that part in alma 32 that talks about that 27 But behold, if ye will awake and arouse your faculties, even to an experiment upon my words, and exercise particle of faith, yea, even if ye can no more than desire‍ to believe, let this desire work in you, even until ye believe in manner that ye can give place for portion of mywords.
 28 Now, we will compare the word unto seedNow, if ye give place, that seed‍ may be planted in your heartbehold, if it be true seed, or good seed, if ye do not cast it out by your unbeliefthat ye will resist the Spirit of the Lord, behold, it will begin to swell within your breasts; and when you feel these swelling motions, ye will begin to say within yourselves—It must needs be that this is good seed, or that the word is good, for it beginneth to enlarge my soul; yea, itbeginneth to enlighten‍ my understandingyea, it beginneth to be delicious to me.
 and he seemed to gain more and more faith, and at the first he seemed like he wouldnt talk to me a Little bit but he took time to answer the questions we asked him, later we asked something like `what things can you do to invite the Spirit into your life`and we used 2 nephi 32 before a Little bit and we talked about Reading the scriptures and prayer, and how the Spirit tells us to do things like that and he answered the question that he can go to Church, i was amazed the Spirit can really work in people as if i didnt know, by the end he had compromised to read the Bible, pray and go to Church. 
if you just make space in your heart the Word grows in you , Christ grows in you, you grow to become as He is

love you

enjoying the missionary life

I don't know what to write for this week it was all good... though we had someone named Jonatàn come to church and he seems to be liking it. but he is still searching an answer and we are trying to help him recognize he has it already though, I think is unsure because he will have to change a lot of things about his life, but we have had some good times teaching him, we often go with the president of the branch, he is cool and smart to, and happens to be a good friend of Jonatàn. things are passing fast. There isn`t to much time here. I am enjoying the missionary life though, lots of happiness although it doesn't seem fun it is still rewarding, you also get to see a lot of accomplishments and that is a fun thing.  we had a good conference with Elder Gonzales the seventy over the area, he is cool and so is his wife they gave some cool tips I have started to use a bit and some cool stories,  well I am getting mad at this computer it is so annoying ahahahahahahahahahahahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh ah .

I have a testimony

I have a testimony that we were called in this time to a mission here on earth life as a call to progress and live better, the time we are in is important and the Lord is with us every step, meaning He knows and offers help always, we can always have help no matter the circumstances the love and help consistently exists if we live right we feel the effects. I know that life is a great time to grow and learn as well as progress, have faith to humility and change, ask and receive is the counsel we often listen to, what person asks in faith that doesn't receive? no one I have heard of, what little kid asks for something to a loving father that won`t receive. faith shapes us to do what is right. I think I am learning just a tiny bit at a time everyday here, sometimes it is from mistakes and getting up as to not fall again or watching other people and their good examples. Just a quick thing I remember, a while ago this past few days actually we found some cool people that look like their desires a pretty good, one name Antonio was a guy we found walking around a little area called asentamiento it is a nice place a bit poorer, it reminds me of a villige. some of the houses there are like tents. the people are pretty humble and kind and it is a sort of danger challenge to them as we saw just a bit ago, antonio anyway lived in one of the tents over in there so we taught him by his house, he was perfectly fine standing for the lesson so we went ahead and taught him el evangelio and he was so happy he has been looking for a change and wants to stop the bad things going on, it sounds like he wants to repent and wake up from his nightmare, fair enough so we tried sharing what the Lord wants for him and he accepted things, we tried to pray in his house and he accepted an invite to baptize without flinching. we have also been teaching this week with a cool member, it has been some time since he got off his mission but his skills are in me and my companion`s opinion some of the best we have seen, and we just taught a great guy a while ago and he also accepted the baptismal invitation. that is a goal for all the mission as it has been for my time here and it is getting stressed by pretty much all the members and leaders. We have set a high number of dates for baptism here and so hopefully we can just keep on finding people and they progress. The Spirit is one of the biggest things in finding I would say as everyone knows. well love you have a good one and hope you can feel the influence of the Gospel in your lifes and it makes you so full of love that you drown in it....drown in it. jk but seriously

Book of Mormon is the word of God

Letter starts sharing a very beautiful personal dream....I was just thinking about how much the Lord actually guides me and communicates with all of His children that look, I have seen so many times how the nice details of my life lead to the Lord blessing me, how His plan is perfect and how peaceful that makes me to know that there is an atonement and mercy. Therefore, gird up your loins, that you may be the children of light, and that day shall not overtake you as a thief.

another cool thing I was remembering when I woke up I had the words come, if you shall endure it well, it will be a small time´´ or something like that it was a few days ago, I was really everyday this week, and my testimony is constantly getting strengthened. We had a good time in Church yesterday taking the sacrament and after we finished planning and things we did some visits when some people and had dinner with a member that is really nice, she seems to always give us good references and she gives a good background on people in contact around her. she reminds me of you a little bit and she calls us her sons, she has helped baptize many people and she always likes to help them for the strong testimony she has. we leave her house with a prayer because she always asks. it is really interesting how some people have such strong testimonies that what their doing is right because they feel it. I will try to be like that sometimes but I feel like some people have that as a Spiritual gift, they just go and do stuff, or take opportunities as original as they are just because they are good. 
My testimony is the Book of Mormon is the word of God, Alma 37 teaches that in a good example using the liahona and ending the journey. a scripture I learned in my study today talks to me, I felt the Spirit guide me to read it or I would not have found it and the things really help me for this time in my life. love you chow
