“Ammon and Lamoni Returned from the Land of Middoni”

Brant Gardner

Textual: The story of Lamoni and Ammon in Middoni was important for two reasons. The first is that it introduced us to the father of Lamoni, an account taken from Ammon’s record. The second is the simple narrative requirement of freeing Aaron so that he might continue to preach. Mormon has done both of these, and now closes out Ammon’s account.
