“Many of Them Came Over to Dwell in the Land of Ishmael and the Land of Nephi and Did Join Themselves to the People of God”

W. Cleon Skousen

At this juncture one cannot help wondering how the missionaries felt about all of these developments. They must have been especially surprised with this unexpected bounty of converts which came after the return of the remnants of the Lamanite army. This brings us to the last verse of this chapter which says:

“And now behold, Ammon, and Aaron, and Omner, and Himni, and their brethren did rejoice exceedingly, for the success which they had had among the Lamanites, seeing that the Lord had granted unto them according to their prayers, and that he had also verified his word unto them in every particular.”
