Increased Aggression and Convert Exodus
Mosiah’s Sons’ Mission to the Lamanites
The Amalekites, angry at their failed plans to overthrow the Nephites, redirect their attention to the Lamanites converts, who are again mercilessly slaughtered.
Ammon, seeing the horrific extermination of the converts, suggests they move up to Zarahemla with the Nephites.
The king of the Anti–Nephi–Lehites fears going to live with Nephites, knowing their tense relations in the past.
Ammon says he will pray about it; he asks the king if he will go if God commands him to do so.
The king says he will, and even consents to slavery in exchange for residence amoung the Nephites.
Ammon reassures the king that will not be necessary, explaining that slavery is illegal among the Nephites.
The king prompts Ammon to go pray about it.
Ammon prays, and the Lord tells him to leave the Lamanite territory and move to the Nephite land.
The Anti–Nephi–Lehites and the missionaries prepare to leave.
Ammon offers to go ahead of them, scout out the trail, and persuade the Nephites to welcome them.
