“The Missionaries Rejoice over Their Success”

Monte S. Nyman

As every good missionary will recognize, their success did not come from their own wisdom and power but from the Lord. The Lord promised King Mosiah that he would “deliver thy sons out of the hands of the Lamanites” (Mosiah 28:7). Later, Ammon blessed his brothers and the rest of his companions “according to their several stations” (Alma 17:18). This blessing implies personal and individual revelation to each one. All of the missionaries recognized these promises and blessings in their behalf.
