Excerpt from The Contributor, Vol. 5: A Monthly Magazine of Home Literature; December, 1883
A number of devoted and inspired Nephite missionaries now appeared in the midst of the Lamanites. They were led by the four sons of King Mosiah, and for fourteen years they tarried and ministered among their dark skinned and darker minded brethren. Their mission produced a great revolu tion in Lamanite society. At first they passed through many scenes of danger, discomfort and suffering; they were cast out, imprisoned and tortured, but their lives, as had been prophesied, were all preserved. By and by, their faith, patience, courage and devotion tri umphed, and they had the unspeakable joy of baptizing into the Church many thousands of their former enemies. All of the obedient ones, with one single exception, were literal descendants of Lehi's elder sons, while those in whose veins ran apostate Nephite blood, re jected the Gospel message, fought it with all their powers, and ultimately were the means of shedding the blood of thousands of the Christian citizens of their adopted country.
