2 Now these sons of Mosiah were with Alma at the time the angel first appeared unto him, therefore, Alma did rejoice exceedingly to see his brethren; 3 And what added more to his joy, they were still his brethren in the Lord, yea, and they had waxed strong in the knowledge of the truth, 4 For they were men of a sound understanding and they had searched the scriptures diligently, that they might know the word of God. 5 But this is not all- They had given themselves to much prayer and fasting, Therefore, they had the spirit of prophecy and the spirit of revelation, And when they taught, they taught with power and authority, even as with the power and authority of God. 6 And they had been teaching the word of God for the space of fourteen years among the Lamanites, having had much success in bringing many to the knowledge of the truth; 7 Yea, by the power of their words many were brought before the altar of God to call on His name and confess their sins before Him. 8 Now these are the circumstances which attended them in their journeyings, for they had many afflictions- 9 They did suffer much, both in body and in mind, such as hunger, thirst and fatigue, And also much labor in the spirit. 10 Now these were their journeyings, Having taken leave of their father Mosiah in the first year of the reign of the judges, Having refused the kingdom which their father was desirous to confer upon them, and also this was the minds of the people; 11 Nevertheless, they departed out of the Land of Zarahemla and took their swords and their spears and their bows and their arrows and their slings; 12 And this they did that they might provide food for themselves while in the wilderness; 13 And thus they departed into the wilderness with their numbers which they had selected, to go up to the Land of Nephi to preach the word of God unto the Lamanites. 14 And it came to pass that they journeyed many days in the wilderness; And they fasted much and prayed much, that the Lord would grant unto them a portion of His Spirit to go with them and abide with them, 15 That they might be an instrument in the hands of God to bring, if it were possible, their brethren the Lamanites to the knowledge of the truth, 16 To the knowledge of the baseness of the traditions of their fathers, which were not correct. 17 And it came to pass that the Lord did visit them with His Spirit and said unto them: "Be comforted"; And they were comforted. 18 And the Lord said unto them also: "Go forth among the Lamanites, thy brethren, and establish My word; 19 Yet ye shall be patient in longsuffering and afflictions, that ye may show forth good examples unto them in Me, And I will make an instrument of thee in My hands unto the salvation of many souls." 20 And it came to pass that the hearts of the sons of Mosiah, and also those which were with them, took courage to go forth unto the Lamanites to declare unto them the word of God. 21 And it came to pass when they had arrived in the borders of the land of the Lamanites, That they separated themselves and departed one from another, trusting in the Lord that they should meet again at the close of their harvest, For they supposed that great was the work which they had undertaken. 22 And assuredly it was great, for they had undertaken to preach the word of God to a wild and a hardened and a ferocious people, A people which delighted in murdering the Nephites, and robbing and plundering them;

Dr. James Tour shares his life-changing testimony of Jesus here:
"Yea, when ye shall call upon the Father in my name, with a broken heart and a contrite spirit, then shall ye know that the Father hath remembered the covenant which he made unto your fathers, O house of Israel;"
"And I will pour upon the house of David, and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the spirit of grace and of supplications; and they shall look upon me whom they have pierced, and they shall mourn for him, as one mourneth for his only son, and shall be in bitterness for him, as one that is in bitterness for his firstborn.
