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
