“The People of the Church Did Have Great Joy Because of the Conversion of the Lamanites”

W. Cleon Skousen

The conversion of so many Lamanites had completely changed the demographics of the western hemisphere. This was partly due to the fact that the Lamanites were more inclined to follow the gospel program than many of the Nephites.

The conversion of the Lamanites had been such a sensational improvement in relations between the Lamanites and most of the Nephites that there was more joy and toleration among them than the majority could ever remember.
