Passage: Alma 12:8 - Alma 12:28

8 Now these are the circumstances which attended them in their journeyings, for they had many afflictions-
9 They did suffer much, both in body and in mind, such as hunger, thirst and fatigue, And also much labor in the spirit.
10 Now these were their journeyings, Having taken leave of their father Mosiah in the first year of the reign of the judges, Having refused the kingdom which their father was desirous to confer upon them, and also this was the minds of the people;
11 Nevertheless, they departed out of the Land of Zarahemla and took their swords and their spears and their bows and their arrows and their slings;
12 And this they did that they might provide food for themselves while in the wilderness;
13 And thus they departed into the wilderness with their numbers which they had selected, to go up to the Land of Nephi to preach the word of God unto the Lamanites.
14 And it came to pass that they journeyed many days in the wilderness; And they fasted much and prayed much, that the Lord would grant unto them a portion of His Spirit to go with them and abide with them,
15 That they might be an instrument in the hands of God to bring, if it were possible, their brethren the Lamanites to the knowledge of the truth,
16 To the knowledge of the baseness of the traditions of their fathers, which were not correct.
17 And it came to pass that the Lord did visit them with His Spirit and said unto them: "Be comforted"; And they were comforted.
18 And the Lord said unto them also: "Go forth among the Lamanites, thy brethren, and establish My word;
19 Yet ye shall be patient in longsuffering and afflictions, that ye may show forth good examples unto them in Me, And I will make an instrument of thee in My hands unto the salvation of many souls."
20 And it came to pass that the hearts of the sons of Mosiah, and also those which were with them, took courage to go forth unto the Lamanites to declare unto them the word of God.
21 And it came to pass when they had arrived in the borders of the land of the Lamanites, That they separated themselves and departed one from another, trusting in the Lord that they should meet again at the close of their harvest, For they supposed that great was the work which they had undertaken.
22 And assuredly it was great, for they had undertaken to preach the word of God to a wild and a hardened and a ferocious people, A people which delighted in murdering the Nephites, and robbing and plundering them;
23 And their hearts were set upon riches, or upon gold and silver and precious stones,
24 Yet they sought to obtain these things by murdering and plundering, that they might not labor for them with their own hands.
25 Thus they were a very indolent people, many of whom did worship idols; And the curse of God had fallen upon them because of the traditions of their fathers, Notwithstanding the promises of the Lord were extended unto them on the conditions of repentance.
26 Therefore, this was the cause for which the sons of Mosiah had undertaken the work: That perhaps they might bring them unto repentance, That perhaps they might bring them to know of the plan of redemption;
27 Therefore, they separated themselves one from another and went forth among them, every man alone, according to the word and power of God which was given unto him.
28 Now Ammon being the chief among them, or rather he did minister unto them, And he departed from them after having blessed them according to their several stations, having imparted the word of God unto them, or administered unto them before his departure; And thus they took their several journeys throughout the land.
