Semana (Week) 54: The Book of Hermana Boice

                                                                   CHAPTER 54
The missionaries are exhorted to walk uprightly and preach.  Salvation comes through Christ.  
God comforts and cares for his saints.  The saints are given assurance by the spirit in their hearts.

And it came to pass that I, Hermana Boice, having been born of goodly parents, and having received instruction from the Church, which is the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, which is the true church, and having been called of God to serve as his servant in a mission, I write, therefore, the history of my time as a servant of the Lord.
  2 Yea, and I write in the language of my fathers and the language of my people.  Which is composed of English. But in some times, Spanglish.
  3 And behold, I write in few words for the lack I have of time.  
  4 And it came to pass that 2 years have passed away from the reign of Presidente Egginton in the Mexico Guadalajara East Mission.  And the people have hardened their hearts and have rejected the words of the missionaries.  But behold, The people of the church have strengthened their faith and their desire to bring these people to the truth.
  5 And it came to pass that my companion Hermana Cantarero, ended her time as a servant called of God, and returned to the land of Belize. And behold, having need for a companion, the Lord called Hermana Sagahon to be mine companion.  
  6 And behold, seven days have passed from this day.  And therefore, having need for new investigators to preach the gospel, we have been guided by the spirit to find those that have been chosen by the Lord to receive this glad message.  
  7 Wherefore it came to pass that as we listened to the guidance of the Spirit, we were lead to the people that have accepted to hear of this message.
  8 And it came to pass that one women, being named Esmerelda, listened to our message, and behold, she felt a feeling of hope in her heart.  For behold, she hath felt despair for many years because of her three children, who have not followed the ways of the Lord.
  9 And it came to pass that she assisted the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, and felt the Spirit of the Lord, and desired to have a mighty change of heart.
  10 And it came to pass that the third day of the week, we visited family of Mendoza.  Yea, we did talk and preach and did make ourselves merry.  And behold they did give us to eat and to drink until we were filled.  
  11 And it came to pass that after we were filled in the belly, they did giveth us a treat of strange form.  The name of this treat is Chungos, yea, what is known in Zamora. And we tasted of this treat, and behold it was sweet to the taste. 
  12 Wherefore, we did ask of how one maketh such a thing.  
  13 And it came to pass that they did begin to explain to us how one maketh such a thing. One putteth milk out until it stinketh, yea, until it beginneth to make clumps.  And behold, one mixeth the clumps with sugar and other things, until it maketh sweet to the taste.
  14 And behold, I write not all of the things that have come to pass, for behold, they are many.
  15 Behold, I delighteth in the words of the prophets, and in the scriptures.  And delighteth in the words of the prophet John when he sayeth: Hijitos mios, no amemos de palabra ni de lengua, sino de hecho y en verdad.(1 John 3:18)
  16 Yea, may that we always love with our actions, and not by our tongue. And these things I leave with you, Amen.
