These chapters begin the story of the missionary efforts of the sons of Mosiah. Ammon and Lamoni take center stage, but the Lamanite woman Abish and her queen play key roles and Mormon emphasizes the contrasts between missionary and conversion experiences by paralleling the stories Ammon and Lamoni, Aaron and Lamoni’s father.
Highlights of this lesson include
- Parallel stories of transformation of Lamoni and his father
- Two of the strongest female protagonists in the Book of Mormon
- Focus on the “Plan of Redemption”
- An example of an “agnostic prayer”
