Book of Mormon Day 59

Day 59: Alma53-55 My sister and I had the same insight as we read this, so it’s definitely worth sharing! Although the 2000 young sons of the people of Ammon (the “stripling warriors”) were inexperienced soldiers, they were willing to take up arms in defense of their people. And instead of choosing a seasoned captain or military man to lead them, they asked Helaman to be their commander. Helaman had spent his life as a missionary and religious leader. Can you imagine how much out of his comfort zone this was? But he agreed out of love for these courageous young men. Ch53v22 “And now it came to pass that Helaman did march at the head of his two thousand stripling soldiers.”
