Lamoni's Smell

Have you ever noticed just how many times people in the Book of Mormon collapse after being overcome with the spirit? King Lamoni does it twice (so does Ammon). And then there is Lamoni's wife and his household, Lamoni's father, and  don't forget Alma. 

It's kind of crazy. 

As a missionary I had a lot of great lessons where the spirit was super strong, but I never so much as yawned during one of those experiences. And never once did our investigators fall over unconscious after a particularly strong testimony. (Maybe we were doing it wrong.)
