Ammah

Ammah went with Ammon, Aaron, Omner, and Himni to preach the gospel to the Lamanites around 90 BC. Ammah is first mentioned when the Lord spoke to Ammon, in the land of Ishmael, and directed him to go to the land of Middoni to free his brethren who were imprisoned there, including Aaron, Muloki, and Ammah. Aaron had earlier left the city of Jerusalem, where the Amalekites and Amulonites had rejected his gospel message. Afterward he went to the village of Ani-Anti, where Muloki and Ammah were attempting to teach the people. When this community, too, rejected their message, the missionaries went to Middoni, where they were cast into prison and suffered great hardship. It was then that King Lamoni and Ammon came to free the prisoners. Thereafter, they “went forth whithersoever they were led by the Spirit of the Lord, preaching the word of God in every synagogue of the Amalekites, or in every assembly of the Lamanites where they could be admitted. And it came to pass that the Lord began to bless them, insomuch that they brought many to the knowledge of the truth; yea, they did convince many of their sins, and of the traditions of their fathers, which were not correct”.
