Himni

Himni, son of King Mosiah, was, like his brothers Ammon, Aaron, and Omner, a stalwart missionary of the gospel of Jesus Christ in the period around 90 BC to 77 BC. At first, these four young men, along with Alma the Younger, were “numbered among the unbelievers” and were “the very vilest of sinners”. But the Lord sent a heavenly messenger to call them to repentance, opening the way for them to bring about much good in their own land as well as among the Lamanites. Himni accompanied his three brothers on a fourteen-year mission to reclaim thousands of hitherto unbelieving Lamanites and to bring them into the fold of Christ. Later, he assisted Ammon and his brethren to secure an area south of Bountiful where those converts, who were then known as the people of Anti-Nephi-Lehi, or the people of Ammon, could be safe from the assaults of their former brethren among the Lamanites.
