Ishmael, we are filled
with gratitude for your faith for joining us
on this difficult journey. Your faith is a great gift. My sons, and now daughters, we have fulfilled
all the commandments of the Lord which have been given unto us. We have been blessed of the Lord exceedingly. Please, eat! If only each day
were as joyful as this! Hey! The voice of Lord
spake unto me by night. He commanded me to take
our journey into the wilderness. Father, in which direction will we go? The Lord has provided means
for us to follow His path. Behold the two spindles… the one points the way
whither we should go. The path is clear. Let us depart. Stay on the path. The Lord will provide. Be prayerful. Be safe. We had a successful hunt. -Thank you.
-Oh, beautiful! We continue in a south
south-easterly direction. Let us depart. Do not worry, we will find food. How? Your bows having lost
their springs… Laman! I tell you again,
we will find food. No! You broke it! You fool!
Why did you draw so hard? -What is the matter with you?
-Now what will we do? Father… Because of our brother’s strength
and God’s curse upon us we are without food. How? Where shall we go for food now,
great leader? We have been prayerful,
obedient. We have done all we have been commanded to do. What more could we have done? Why? Why has the Lord
chosen now to abandon us? The Lord will provide. The Lord will provide? The Lord has led us
out here to perish. We don’t need the Lord,
we need food! Do not revile against the Lord! He has delivered us thus far;
He will do so again. You have hardened your hearts again, even unto complaining
against the Lord! The Lord will provide. No, Father is correct. The Lord has abandoned us. What is that fool doing? Father, whither shall I go to obtain food? Oh, my son, thank you for your faith. Wait here. Oh Lord, please forgive me… The Lord told me
to look upon the ball, and behold the things
which are written. How is this possible? What is it? There are new writings. The pointers
which are in the ball… they work according to the faith
and diligence and heed which we give unto them. Nephi? Nephi! Oh Lord, we give Thee thanks. May we remember
that with great faith and diligence, and through small means, Thou canst bring about great things.
