“He Was Set Among Other Servants to Watch the Flocks of Lamoni”

Bryan Richards

Ammon is lucky to be alive after being taken prisoner. Although his desire to dwell among the Lamanites has endeared him to the king enough to save his life, he is not given a very desirable assignment. The previous flock tenders had been killed because they were unable to preserve the king's property. Were it not for the power of God and the promise that Ammon would be preserved, Ammon may well have suffered a similar fate.
